Tensilica Picks EVE's ZeBu for Validation of Diamond Video Core

Tensilica used EVE’s ZeBu to validate the Diamond 38xVDO Video Engines. Targeted at mobile handsets and personal media players (PMPs), Tensilica’s Diamond Standard Video Engines are fully programmable to support VGA and standard definition (SD, also known as D1) video codecs.

ZeBu (for Zero Bugs) gives Tensilica verification engineers an easy-to-use and affordable solution that combines the best aspects of traditional emulation and rapid prototyping systems. It is used in Tensilica’s system-level regression testing, hardware/software integration, application and codec development, conformance testing and profiling. ZeBu also proved useful in validating multi-processor synchronous debugging. In addition to allowing software engineers to validate codecs, ZeBu also helped Tensilica’s engineers find subtle bugs during product development related to clock tree issues missed during register transfer level (RTL) simulation.
