Good Partnership on All Levels
Real Intent knew Verific before it was Verific, begins Rajiv Kumar. Actually, Rajiv clarifies, the first connection was with Rob when he was consulting before officially launching Verific in 1999.
Rob helped Real Intent as it was getting started. They worked together on an HDL parser and Rob wrote the VHDL front end, still in use today. Over time, Real Intent purchased a host of Verific tools, including SystemVerilog and UPF elaborators.
As far as Rajiv is concerned, there’s no need to look at another vendor. “Verific is excellent at supporting us. If one of our high-priority users has an urgent issue, for example, the Verific group in India responds quickly. It knows the code well and gives us excellent support.”
Local support for Real Intent, based in Sunnyvale, Calif., is Hoa Dinh, a Verific long timer who also did a stint at Real Intent, something Rajiv considers a huge plus.
Then there’s a tall version of the Verific mascot sitting in the lead engineer’s cubicle, a constant reminder of Verific’s close relationship with the company. It’s fitting as well that the giraffe sits in the cubicle of the engineering project lead for front-end software.
On a personal level, Rajiv says, he’s known Rob, Michiel and Hoa for more than 20 years. It’s a good partnership on all levels and he’s happy working with Verific.
