Poseidon Design Systems Supports Synplicity Synthesis Tools.
SAN JOSE San Jose, city, United States
San Jose (sănəzā`, săn hōzā`), city (1990 pop. 782,248), seat of Santa Clara co., W central Calif.; founded 1777, inc. 1850. , Calif. -- Poseidon Design Systems today announced that its Triton Tool suite provides direct support for the use of Synplicity synthesis tools.
"The fundamental value proposition of ESL (1) An earlier family of client/server development tools for Windows and OS/2 from Ardent Software (formerly VMARK). It was originally developed by Easel Corporation, which was acquired by VMARK. (Electronic System-Level) design tools is the speed with which they enable system architects and designers to make informed architectural changes to a system to optimize its performance," said Andrew Haines, the vice president of marketing at Synplicity. "Poseidon's Triton Tool suite places this power in the hands of FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) A type of gate array that is programmed in the field rather than in a semiconductor fab. Containing up to hundreds of thousands of gates, there are a variety of FPGA architectures on the market. and ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) Pronounced "a-sick." A chip that is custom designed for a specific application rather than a general-purpose chip such as a microprocessor. engineers, and we are delighted that Poseidon has chosen to enable these customers to use of our synthesis tools in their design flows."
The Triton Tools environment augments existing design flows to optimize the performance, power, and cost of processor-based architectures. Two tools comprise the Triton tool suite: Triton Tuner and Triton Builder. Triton Tuner gives ASIC designers the ability to rapidly evaluate their architectures much earlier in the design effort, thus uncovering performance bottlenecks and eliminating costly architectural rework later in the project. Triton Builder enables designers to rapidly and predictably repartition re·par·ti·tion

"We share a common mission with Synplicity to enable designer productivity and speed time to market, and we are pleased to mutually support the same type of customers," stated Ravi Janak, CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization.

""As a system-based EDA (1) (Electronic Design Automation) Using the computer to design, lay out, verify and simulate the performance of electronic circuits on a chip or printed circuit board. provider, we can ensure that our tools satisfy the needs of the global community of FPGA, platform ASIC and cell-based ASIC designers. To meet the needs of Synplicity's growing customer base, we have tested RTL (Register Transfer Level) A high-level hardware description language (HDL) for defining digital circuits. The circuits are described as a collection of registers, Boolean equations, control logic such as "if-then-else" statements as well as complex event sequences; interoperability between our Triton Tool suite and Synplicity's Synplify Pro(R) and Amplify(R) RapidChip products," said Farzad Zarrinfar, Poseidon's vice president of worldwide sales and marketing. "Moreover, this interoperability will allow designers to concentrate on design creativity, not on EDA tool integration."
