Reminder - Carbon to Show SOC-VSP™ at ARM ESL Seminar; SOC-VSP and ARM RealView SoC Designer Provide a Complete ESL Solution

PARIS -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 12, 2006 --


Carbon Design Systems, an innovator in Electronic System Level (ESL) tools for system validation, based in Waltham, MA.


Carbon's Virtual Prototyping Software

Carbon Design Systems is demonstrating its virtual system prototyping software -- SOC-VSP™ -- that allows RTL (Verilog and VHDL) designs to be easily imported into the ARM® RealView® SoC Designer system simulation environment. A hardware-accurate, soft-model of a SoC can now be rapidly assembled and functionally validated on an engineer's desktop months before silicon. ARM RealView SoC Designer enables System Architects to profile a SoC with end-to-end cycle accuracy including ARM processors, AMBA® interconnect, peripheral models, and with SOC-VSP, Verilog® and VHDL. SOC-VSP supports ARM ESL APIs to provide integrated hardware profiling and debug capabilities. SOC-VSP is also used by software developers to validate their embedded firmware on a hardware accurate model before tapeout.


ARM ESL Seminar:

Tuesday, June 13, 2006: 9:30am - 4:30pm

Mercure Hotel in Montigny Le Bretonneux, Paris, France

About Carbon

Carbon is delivering a high-performance virtual system prototyping solution that enables a system prototype to be rapidly assembled and functionally validated on the desktop months before silicon. Carbon's new software approach allows multiple levels of abstraction to be validated together including C, SystemC, Verilog and VHDL RTL, IP cores, transaction-level, and instruction-level models. The key to SOC-VSP is silicon accuracy and performance; the ability to execute billions of cycles and boot embedded operating systems, all with desktop software.
