Sumitomo Heavy Industry Ltd. Adopts Blue Pearl Software’s Visual Verification Suite CDC for Clock Domain Crossing Signoff

SANTA CLARA, California January 12, 2021 – Blue Pearl Software Inc., today announced that Japan’s Sumitomo Heavy Industry Ltd. (SHI) has adopted its Visual Verification Suite™ CDC for Clock Domain Crossing signoff of their advanced FPGA and ASIC designs.

“Many of SHI’s products require real-time high-speed processing. For example, image processing and artificial intelligence accelerators used in our products may be implemented in an FPGA or an ASIC depending on the applications performance requirements,” said Takumi Ito, Control Systems Engineering Dept. General Manager for SHI’s Mechatronics Division. ”We selected Blue Pearl’s CDC analysis to ensure the quality and reliability of these highly complex FPGA and ASIC designs.”

With the Visual Verification Suite, designers verify as they code.  The suite’s CDC option comes complete with the HDL Creator™ smart editor, Analyze™ RTL advanced static and formal linting, an integrated debug environment, and enhanced Clock Domain Crossing (CDC) analysis. The suite is designed to complement and extend the verification capabilities provided by the FPGA and ASIC vendor offerings.

“Sumitomo Heavy Industries Group has made it their corporate mission to become a manufacturer and provider of first-class products and services to the world,” said Fumiko Suzuki, Blue Pearl’s Vice President of Asia Sales. “We are pleased to partner with them to help meet their quality and reliability goals by identifying CDC and coding style issues earlier in their development process, saving both time and money.”
