EVE S.A. Thursday (Jan 5) announced the availability of a catalog of peripheral intellectual property (IP) components for its ZeBu emulation platform to address wireless, graphics/video/multimedia, networking and embedded processor markets.
The IP components are organized in three families — synthesizable memory models, transactors and hardware bridges — and allow EVE to offer vertical solutions of ZeBu, the company said.
"Unlike classical verification IPs, our components are designed for extremely high performance tuned to our ZeBu platform," said Lauro Rizzatti, general manager of EVE-USA and vice president of worldwide marketing, in a statement. "Our investment in this high-quality catalog of industry-standard components is paying off handsomely. It has given ZeBu-based design teams an accelerated path to market."
EVE (Palaiseau, France) said it organized a task force in 2005 to create peripherals and protocol IP testbench components to work with ZeBu. These components, which mimic specific protocols, are used to develop and verify electronic devices, the company said.
The ZeBu Vertical Solution Catalog is shipping now, with a price that starts at $5,000 per component for a one-year, term-based license, the company said.
