Hyperstone selects Synopsys VCS for verification of leading safety-critical industrial memory card controller SoCs
Industry-leading VCS the only verification technology capable of meeting highest reliability and capacity verification requirements
"Our new S8 SD 3.0 and eMMC 4.4 industrial flash memory card controller is designed to deliver the highest level of reliability and data retention when using innovative sub-20-nm multi-level cell flash technologies. Tying state-of-the-art error-correction code to our proven hyReliability™ firmware architecture ensures the highest levels of endurance and reliability that our customers are used to," said Axel Mehnert, vice president of marketing at Hyperstone. "Our mission is enabling future NAND flashes and advanced technologies to be fit for use, especially within industrial, ruggedised applications. This requires the robust verification and analysis provided to us uniquely by Synopsys' VCS functional verification solution. No other technology had the capacity, performance, advanced verification features and reliability to verify such complex designs."
"SoCs used in safety-critical and industrial markets are growing in size and complexity, requiring high-reliability, high-capacity and high-performance verification technology," said Rohit Vora, vice president of R&D in Synopsys' Verification Group. "We continue to collaborate with industry leaders in this space, such as Hyperstone, to offer unique verification technology targeted for this growing market."
