Claiming to be the industry's most advanced simulation acceleration and in-circuit emulation system, the Palladium combines a scalable simulation and emulation hardware architecture with an integrated software environment. The system provides a wide range of verification options such as integration into existing testbench environments. Simulation acceleration options include accelerated co-simulation with C++ and behavioral testbenches.Additional features include a high-performance, transaction-based co-simulation interface, a high-speed compiler with compile times of four million or more ASIC gates per hour, and what is said to be an easy-to-use software environment. The Palladium will be available in the fourth quarter of 2001. QUICKTURN, San Jose, CA. (408) 914-6000.
