Ricoh has chosen the Cadence Palladium XP verification computing platform to boost its development of multi-function printer chips in the market.

The Palladium XP platform with Cadence PCIe 2.0 Accelerated Verification IP (VIP) delivered the fastest design “bring up” in comparison to alternative solutions and provided a 40X verification speed-up over RTL logic simulation.

Koichi Kamon, deputy division director of the work solutions development division at Ricoh, said: “The simulation acceleration bring-up time with the Palladium XP platform is by far the fastest and easiest in the industry, making it an easy choice for the SoC development of our state-of-the-art multifunction printer products.”

He added that the platform was chosen due to its superior technology and increased value in comparison to alternative solutions.

The Palladium XP platform is the industry's first high-performance, special-purpose verification computing platform that combines best-in-class simulation acceleration and emulation capabilities into a single environment.
