From EET.com: " In an attempt to forge an
industry-standard testbench generation language, Synopsys
Inc. on Monday announced open-source licensing for
its Vera language along with more than 20 third-party vendor
endorsements. But Vera faces tough competition from Verisity
Design's "e" language, as well as Superlog and any of several
C++ class-library proposals."
