Cloud Simulation and Verification Management for Modern, Predictable Coverage Closure

Metrics delivers the benefits of a true cloud solution for IC verification, including on demand deployment, high reliability, and team collaboration.

We are removing the typical high overhead of configuring and maintaining the hardware and software needed for a robust verification environment. At the same time, we are eliminating the historical obstacles to broad cloud adoption, such as security concerns and workflow integration.

Our pay by the minute Software as a Service approach will enable semiconductor and systems companies to instantly accommodate peak simulation demand, optimize budgets, and accelerate verification closure.

The three key characteristics of Metrics are:

  • Cloud-based simulation, analytics, and open platform technology
  • Fair pricing by the minute for instant on demand provisioning
  • Global team collaboration with secure integration to existing workflows
