ArchPro Design Automation announced MaVeric for next-generation, multi-voltage design verification. MaVeric eliminates the risks associated with power intent based verification solutions that can lead to inadequate coverage of the power states and can result in silicon failures or failures during field operation. The product verifies a multi-voltage design completely through an architecture-based, multi-voltage profiling and "Electrically Accurate" verification.

Built on silicon proven technologies, MaVeric lets designers achieve complete architecture-based coverage of multi-voltage states, transitions and sequences and automatic multi-voltage assertion generation to debug designs early and easily. The electrically accurate verification includes voltage-aware functional specifications for cells and IPs that eliminates any uncertainty regarding design function. MaVeric also allows designers to achieve verification of power management in the context of the overall system architecture

"Ageia's high-performing 2nd-generation PhysX processor for cutting-edge video games has power management as a serious issue," said Howard A. Landman, Manager of Physical Design for Ageia Technologies, an early customer. "So it became our first foray into multi-voltage-domain design. Archpro's multi-voltage verification tools detected design problems and helped us achieve first-silicon success. As we move forward to future projects with even more complex voltage management, I expect their tools will become absolute necessities."
