Northwest Logic Uses Blue Pearl Software’s Analyze to Maximize IP Core Quality

SAN JOSE, California–June 1, 2012 - Blue Pearl Software, Inc., a leading provider of EDA software which accelerates electronic design implementation, announced today that Northwest Logic, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance, easy-to-use, Intellectual Property (IP) cores, uses Blue Pearl’s Analyze to maximize the quality of its IP cores.

“We have been using Blue Pearl’s Analyze for several years and found it to be very useful in identifying and resolving coding issues. This, in turn, has helped us maximize the quality of our IP Cores. We not only use Analyze internally, but also recommend it to our customers and partners,” said Brian Daellenbach, President of Northwest Logic.

“Northwest Logic and Blue Pearl Software share the same focus on maximizing design quality. Analyze is one component of our Blue Pearl Software Suite which is specifically designed to increase our customers’ Quality of Results (QoR),” added Shakeel Jeeawoody, VP Marketing, Blue Pearl Software.

About Blue Pearl Software Suite
Analyze is a part of Blue Pearl Software Suite. It provides functional design analysis to verify properties, methodology standards and design rules. Its benefits include reducing design risk and improving QoR.

Blue Pearl Software Suite accelerates design implementation with its comprehensive RTL analysis, CDC checks and automatic SDC generation. Its Visualization Verification Environment ™ and design technology give users immediate feedback for validating automatically generated pre-synthesis longest paths and SDCs, which are used to drive the efficiency of synthesis and place & route tools.
