JasperGold Apps are built on a single platform that combines multiple formal-based solutions and leverages a common shared database and user interface.  The JasperGold Apps architecture enables sharing of design and verification data for each design under test (DUT) between Apps for increased consistency and productivity.  The Apps architecture supports deployment of multiple Apps simultaneously as well as multiple invocations of the same App for improved throughput and performance.

The JasperGold Apps architecture is extensible such that customers can take advantage of future Apps that will address emerging design and verification needs.  The design and verification challenges that customers have addressed by creating flows using our formal technology have been the inspiration for some of the JasperGold Apps.  Customers will be able to continue to leverage the powerful and highly programmable platform in JasperGold to develop their customized flows.

“Customers consistently turn to Jasper for solutions to their complex verification problems, and we are committed to partnering with our customers in support of solving their verification needs,” said Kathryn Kranen, president and CEO of Jasper Design Automation. “The JasperGold Apps model is a critical evolution in verification technology that will make the power of our technology more widely accessible and at the same time make deployment and use more streamlined and efficient.”

“Jasper has created a value-added approach to its formal technology deployment,” said Gary Smith at Gary Smith EDA. “Formal technology has long been thought of as a point tool that addresses only a specific verification issue. Jasper has been able to provide the benefits of their unique formal technology across the entire design and verification flow through easily adoptable apps. This is something the market has needed for quite some time.”

The initial offerings of JasperGold Apps are: the Formal Property Verification App; Connectivity Verification App; X-Propagation Verification App; RTL Development App, Control/Status Register Verification App, and the Architectural Modeling App.
