Design Automation Conference (1988)
Anaheim, CA, USA

A description is given of IBM's engineering verification engine, EVE, a special-purpose, highly-parallel programmable machine for the simulation of computer logic. EVE, which is based on the architecture of the Yorktown simulation engine, can simulate two million gates at a speed of more than two billion gate evaluations per second, far beyond the capabilities of existing software simulators. An overview is given of the EVE architecture, hardware and software, and some current applications are described.
