Design Automation Conference 2003
FOSTER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2003--Fintronic USA, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance Verilog simulators announced the release of Super FinSim 64-bit on Linux.
Fintronic was the first company to port a
Verilog simulator to the Linux platform in 1993, as well as to a 64
bit platform in 1996 when it ported to DEC Alpha. After porting to SUN
Solaris 64-bit in 1999, Fintronic just rolled out a 64-bit Super
FinSim for the newly available Linux 64-bit platform on PC.
Dr. Alec Stanculescu, CEO and president of
Fintronic USA, Inc., stated, "Verilog simulation of large circuits is
made much easier by the availability of Super FinSim on Linux
64-bit. The new platform will support the execution of simulations
using more than 4GB of main memory." A demonstration of Super FinSim
on a 6GB PC with Linux 64-bit manufactured by ASL Inc. in Newark will
be given inside Fintronic's booth at the DAC Tradeshow in Anaheim, CA
between June 2 and June 4, 2003.
Jeff Nguyen, CEO of ASL Inc. in Newark,
California stated, "High performance and affordable 64-bit simulation
environment has finally arrived!" Using ASL's Monarch 8200 dual AMD
1.8ghz Opteron system with 8GB of memory and Fintronic's Super FinSim
Verilog simulator, companies can now purchase a state of the art
design platform for under $25K.
