Ricoh Selects Cadence Palladium XP Platform for Next-Generation Multifunction 
Printer SoC Development 
Cadence Technology Achieves 40X Acceleration Speed-Up 
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/15/13 --  Cadence Design Systems,
Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation,
today announced that Ricoh Corporation selected the Cadence(R)
Palladium(R) XP verification computing platform for its multifunction
printer system-on-chip (SoC) development, after an extensive
competitive benchmarking process. Achieving the fastest design
"bring-up" compared to alternative solutions, the Palladium XP
platform with Cadence PCIe 2.0 Accelerated Verification IP (VIP) also
delivered a 40X verification speed-up over RTL logic simulation. 
"We chose the Palladium XP platform based on its superior technology,
better value over alternative solutions and excellent technical
support team," said Mr. Koichi Kamon, deputy division director of the
Work Solutions Development Division at Ricoh. "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." 
"Ricoh is an important new Palladium XP customer for Cadence, and we
are collaborating with its design team on the development and
verification of their next-generation SoC," said Nimish Modi, senior
vice president, System and Software Realization Group at Cadence. "As
the leader in system verification, Cadence is providing innovative
solutions such as the simulation acceleration hot-swap technology
between Palladium XP and Incisive(R) Enterprise Simulator tools as
part of an integrated flow for users needing higher performance and
productivity." 
Part of the Cadence System Development Suite, the Palladium XP
platform is the industry's first high-performance, special-purpose
verification computing platform that unifies best-in-class simulation
acceleration and emulation capabilities in a single environment. With
its hot-swap technology, the Palladium XP platform delivers
unparalleled productivity as users can transition among simulation,
simulation acceleration, and emulation environments at runtime
without re-compilation. The Palladium XP platform offers systems and
semiconductor companies flexible new use models that accelerate
verification and hardware-software integration, helping to assure
on-time delivery of high-quality products to the market.
