Cadence and CEVA Collaborate to Deliver Verification Process Automation to End Customers; CEVA Joins OpenChoice IP Program and Standardizes on Cadence Incisive Enterprise Family.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CDNS) today announced that CEVA Inc., a leading licensor of digital signal processing (DSP) cores and platforms, in collaboration with Cadence will deliver a more comprehensive solution for CEVA end customers by integrating CEVA-X DSP cores and the CEVA-XS System platforms with Cadence verification technology. The collaboration was made possible through CEVA's new membership in the Cadence OpenChoice IP program and will provide a market-proven, highly integrated verification solution that enables improved team productivity, design quality, and project predictability for complex SoC and system designs. CEVA customers will have access to a verification solution based on key Cadence verification process automation (VPA) technologies: the Incisive(R) Enterprise Specman Simulator and Incisive Plan-to-Closure Methodology.

The verification solution is based on the IEEE P1647 e language and is targeted at ensuring proper core integration and system verification. CEVA has also standardized on Cadence Incisive Enterprise verification solutions for its internal DSP core verification.

"We adopted the Cadence Incisive Enterprise verification technology and Plan-to-Closure Methodology as our preferred solution for helping ensure CEVA's internal verification success and to enable our end customers to quickly get to market with quality products," said Assaf Avraham, director of VLSI at CEVA. "We are providing a differentiated advantage for our customers by delivering CEVA's top-tier DSP cores with a verification solution based on Cadence's verification process automation."

"Partnering to provide the combination of Cadence verification and CEVA-X DSP cores is a great way to leverage the strengths of both companies' technologies to bring real benefits to end customers," said Jan Willis, senior vice president, Industry Alliances, at Cadence. "CEVA's membership in the OpenChoice program allows us to work with CEVA in new ways to solve the customer's problem, which, in turn, will help grow business opportunities for both companies."
