Partnership with EVE benefits student learning

Published: 27 July 2009

ECS students will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with leading, state-of-the-art co-verification solutions, as a result of the EVE University Connections Program.

The University of Southampton has become a member of the Program, enabling the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) to take delivery of EVE’s hardware/software co-verification solutions. ECS will use the ZeBu-UF University Bundle for system-on-chip (SoC) design teaching and research programs. The bundle includes the hardware emulator, zFAST fast synthesis with support for VHDL and Verilog, the zTIDE simulation environment to develop synthesizable transactors, a ZEMI-3 custom transactor compiler license and validation intellectual property (IP).

Sandra Larrabee, manager of the EVE University Connections Program, commented: 'The addition of the University of Southampton expands our reach into universities worldwide for teaching and research. Welcoming the School of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton to our program puts EVE one step closer to obtaining our goal to touch the academic world, especially with Southampton’s global reputation and large research and student populations.'

Professor Mark Zwolinski of ECS and Dr Matthew Swabey, Teaching Fellow, explained: 'EVE is the world-class vendor of emulation technologies. Its ZeBu will enable our students to learn how to prototype very large digital systems, further enhancing our teaching. It is especially applicable for our teaching and research on novel numerical System-on-Chip co-processors based around cores from ARM, IBM and OpenSPARC.'
