Collaboration will verify C-to-Silicon Compiler output SpyGlass® Clean
SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 24, 2011 — Atrenta Inc., a leading provider of SoC Realization solutions for the semiconductor and electronic systems industries, today announced that it has joined the Cadence System Realization Alliance. The initial focus for the alliance will be to verify that output of the Cadence® C-to-Silicon Compiler passes a set of high-level synthesis SpyGlass® rules that will be jointly developed by Cadence and Atrenta.
The Cadence C-to-Silicon Compiler automatically generates synthesizable register transfer level (RTL) output starting from untimed C/C++/SystemC®. Atrenta’s SpyGlass is the widely used platform for validation and optimization of RTL descriptions prior to handoff to physical design tools. Through this collaboration, Cadence and Atrenta will define a set of SpyGlass rules that verify C-to-Silicon output for parameters such as syntactic correctness, power, testability and clock synchronization. It is anticipated that the resultant rules will become part of C-to-Silicon internal testing, and a subset of these rules will also be available to end users.
“High-level synthesis is moving into mainstream design practice, and the technology will be a key ingredient for ensuring our customers’ success,” said Ramesh Dewangan, senior director, product marketing for the SpyGlass platform at Atrenta. “We are delighted to be part of the Cadence System Realization Alliance. Together, Atrenta and Cadence can enable Cadence customers to reap the benefits of faster time to market provided by high-level synthesis solutions.”
“Cadence is committed to providing our C-to-Silicon customers with industry-leading quality of results and a superior user experience,” said Michal Siwinski, group director of product marketing, System & Software Realization Group, Cadence. “Our alliance with key companies like Atrenta ensures we can continue to deliver the C-to-Silicon solutions required to reduce time-to-market and design complexity.”
