Product Offering

mentor_seamlessMentor Graphics® Seamless® co-verification environment enables software/hardware development and verification in parallel, removing software from the critical path, reducing the risk of hardware iterations, shortening design cycle time and increasing overall product quality. Increased visibility into your hardware design allows you to debug designs while they are exercised by production software running on the CEVA DSP and companion CPUs.

Mentor is partnering with CEVA to provide multi-core multi-simulation tools to enable smart and powerful design methodologies for CEVA cores. Seamless allows first-time system design and implementation benefiting the CEVA user community by improving time-to-market for products based on System-on-Chip (SoC) architectures.

Seamless Product Benefits

  • Seamless supports both multi-processor homogeneous and heterogeneous environments. This enables hardware/software co-verification of systems containing both DSP and MCU/MPU cores.
  • Shortens the design cycle time by one to three months for embedded systems - SoC and System-on-Board.
  • Dynamic detail-performance flexibility during verification helps ensure first-pass silicon success.
  • Patented optimizations deliver high-performance and comprehensive design validation.
  • Accurate measurement of key design performance parameters, such as bus, memory and software performance.
  • Collaboration between hardware and software design teams yields optimal system solutions.
