Hitachi Metals Adopts Clock Domain Crossing Verification Software From Real Intent to Improve Design Quality

Meridian CDC Tool Catches Hidden Design Failures

SUNNYVALE, CA and TOKYO, JAPAN--(Marketwired - June 23, 2014) - Real Intent, Inc., a leading provider of RTL functional verification solutions, today announced that Hitachi Metals, Ltd. has adopted the Meridian CDC product from Real Intent for its digital electronics design flow. Hitachi Metals will employ Meridian CDC to verify the correct behavior of clock domain crossings in its FPGA designs. Hitachi Metals will use this enhanced design flow for its APRESIA Ethernet switch products, which are popular with telecommunications carrier information network devices.

"We selected Real Intent's solution because of its distinct accuracy, capacity and reporting advantages over our previous methodology," said Mr. Kenji Aoshima, General Manager, Core Technology Dept., Information Systems Products Business Unit, Cable Materials Company, Hitachi Metals. "We determined that the adoption of Meridian CDC in our flow will contribute to improved quality of the FPGA designs in our networking communication products."

Hitachi Metals was able to detect missed incorrect asynchronous signal paths, verify re-convergence effects, and perform needed pulse-width checks with high accuracy using Meridian CDC's comprehensive structural and formal analysis engines.

"Finding asynchronous crossing errors and having the excellent accuracy of the analysis reports were key to our decision," added Aoshima. "Meridian was able to detect actual design failures and yet did not report false failures. Its efficiency in reporting the exact re-convergence points in our designs, and the formal analysis of possible pulse-width errors also proved the accuracy of the tool."

Prakash Narain, president and CEO of Real Intent, said, "Hitachi Metals' adoption of our Meridian CDC product is a testament to the accuracy benefits that our solutions offer. We look forward to partnering with Hitachi Metals for wider adoption of Real Intent technology in its design and verification flows."

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.
