BigBand Networks Adopts AMIQ's DVT to Shorten Its Verification Schedules

June 14, 2010, Anaheim, CA — AMIQ EDA s.r.l., the leading provider of integrated development environments (IDEs) for the e and SystemVerilog verification languages, announced today that BigBand Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: BBND) has adopted its eDT product from the Design and Verification Tools (DVT) product line to enhance the efficiency of its verification engineers.

BigBand Networks provides broadband services and innovative digital video networking solutions designed to make it easier to move, manage, and monetize video. These solutions are based on BigBand's video-networking platforms that are built to enable efficient and reliable delivery across a wide range of services, including digital TV, high definition TV, advanced advertising, video-on-demand, and interactive TV.

"We are very proud to have BigBand Networks as our customers", said Cristian Amitroaie, AMIQ's CEO. "BigBand has a strong verification team with vast experience using the e language. It is very exciting to see how novice and expert verification engineers can both enjoy the advantages of DVT and improve the way they interact".

"AMIQ's eDT makes our verification engineers more efficient. The advanced search features, hyperlinks, and class browser are great enhancements to functional verification, which help us to increase the quality of our projects", said Tamir Ostfeld, Sr. Director of VLSI Development at BigBand Networks. "In addition, the DVT's built-in linter saves us the need to run Specman to find syntax errors".

AMIQ is exhibiting at the 2010 Design Automation Conference (DAC), in Anaheim,CA, June 13- 18, booth #1417. The schedule of the DVT presentations and demos can be found here.


AMIQ focuses on adding value to the verification domain through its proprietary tools and over 10 years of expertise in ASIC functional verification and reusable IP development. AMIQ provides the Design and Verification Tools (DVT™) platform, the first integrated development environment (IDE) for e and SystemVerilog. Powerful, yet easy to use, the DVT platform integrates in a single window a smart code editor with a complete suite of tools such as class browser, linter, revision control, and task tracking. It works with all major simulators and supports popular verification methodologies like OVM/UVM and VMM. The DVT IDE enables efficient code writing, simplifies the maintenance of reusable libraries and legacy code, and allows verification engineers to easily navigate through a project, making their work much easier and efficient.
