Hardware maker EVE has released what it calls a next generation hardware accelerator, designed for ease of use and offering close to unlimited capacity.
It claims that the ZeBu-AX accelerates simulation from 10 to 1000 times faster than any Hardware Description Language (HDL) simulator.
The ZeBu-AX is a product of EVE's recent acquisition of Tharas Systems.
According to electronics talk, the ZeBu-AX offers plug-and-play, event-accurate mixed-language simulation acceleration.
Its design means that it can reach up to 512 million application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) gates and its one-pass compilation executes at a speed of 125 million ASIC gates per hour on a single workstation.
The fully automatic process runs on a single-kernel and works in co-simulation with Synopsys VCS, Mentor Graphics QuestaSim, Cadence NC-Sim.
It supports RedHat and Suse Linux platforms.
