Bangalore, India based Cadence Design Systems (India) Pvt Ltd., the Indian branch of semiconductor design tool leader Cadence Design Systems Inc. reported today that 13 new partners have joined its Verification Alliance Program.

The program is a global partner network of consulting companies with skills in verification consulting services, verification IP development, and training for Cadence customers including GDA Technologies, Ingot Systems, Innovaide, IntelliProp, KPIT Cummins Infosystems, Manipal Dot Net, Mindtree Consulting, nSys, Oski Technology, Silicon Interfaces, StellarIP, Tata Elxsi, and TES PV Electronic Solutions.

eInfochips said it has been part of the program in India for three years and has allowed the company to help its customers be more productive with Cadence technologies, develop verification IP that speeds its customers’ verification process, and reduces the risk associated with incomplete verification.

Through this program, Cadence aims to help its Verification Alliance partners enhance their existing competencies in the Incisive Plan-to-Closure Methodology and Cadence’s verification technologies.

In addition, Verification Alliance partners are able to contribute reusable verification IP to the Cadence OpenChoice IP Program, an online catalog of IP for design and verification.
Jaswinder Ahuja, corporate VP and managing director of Cadence India says there is significant expertise in the area of front-end design and verification in India. The Verification Alliance Program contributes to the Indian semiconductor ecosystem by providing valuable verification resources and market access that will ultimately reduce the risks of getting products to market on time, every time, he said in a statement.

The Verification Alliance Program was launched in 1999 by Verisity Design Systems Inc., a company Cadence acquired in 2005.

With these new partners in India, Cadence says it now has more than 50 partners worldwide with over 500 verification experts addressing customers’ verification challenges.
