ETRI Standardizes on Novas Verdi Debug Solution

SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 29, 2007— Novas Software, Inc., the leader in debug and visibility enhancement solutions for complex chip designs, today announced that the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) has adopted the Novas Verdi(TM) Automated Debug System as its standard debug platform. ETRI is a nonprofit organization that provides small and mid-sized chip design companies in Korea with access to state-of-the-art technologies through its SoC Industry Promotion Center. The center is chartered with development of low-voltage, high-performance system-on-chip (SoC) design platforms to power multimedia and telecommunications electronics in the 21st century.

"Technology is the backbone of R&D for SoC companies, and so we are compelled to provide solutions that easily scale with the size and complexity of their designs," said Jang Hyun Park, team leader for the ETRI SoC Industry Promotion Center. "Novas' Verdi system meets this challenge and is today used by more than 40 of our member companies to debug their high-performance microprocessors, multimedia and graphics processors, RFID ICs, and memory chips."

"We believe that the new innovative SoC design technologies developed in our institute will make Korea industrially competitive and maintain our leading position in the IT industry," said Byoung Jin Yoon, director of ETRI SoC Industry Promotion Center. "For this reason, we value our collaborative relationship with other technology leaders such as Novas as critical to our mission. Together, we are ensuring that SoC companies have the right tools and infrastructure needed to design platforms for next-generation DVD and mobile telecommunications, digital multimedia broadcasting, wireless communications, graphics display and image sensor devices."

Verdi is a complete mixed-language debug system that automates the process of comprehending how complex IC and SoC designs work or why they do not. It provides a universal debug platform and common interface for accessing all the design knowledge and analysis engines needed throughout the verification tool and methodology flow. Engineers can analyze cause-and-effect relationships and visualize design behavior over time to better understand and accelerate debug of third-party intellectual property, legacy design code and new or unfamiliar components.

"ETRI is a well-respected organization and technology leader in its own right. We applaud their efforts to fuel SoC research and development for the global IT industry, and appreciate their confidence in the ability of our Verdi debug platform to meet their requirements for the long term," said Scott Sandler, president and CEO of Novas.
