SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NextOp Software, Inc. today announced that AMD (NYSE: AMD), has signed a multi-year, multi-license agreement for worldwide deployment of NextOp's BugScope assertion synthesis product. NextOp's BugScope improves functional verification via a unified assertion-based verification methodology for AMD's simulation, formal, and emulation verification environments.
BugScope's automation is intended to enable AMD designers to quickly ramp up an assertion-based verification methodology with minimal manual effort.
