Sigasi Continues to Improve Engineering Productivity with Studio XPRT

Company to showcase new SystemVerilog and VHDL code editing features in Studio XPRT and Sigasi Studio 4.0 at the Design Automation Conference

Ghent, Belgium, June 7, 2018 –  Sigasi, a leading developer of HDL design solutions, today announced Studio XPRT, a new visual tool to streamline workflow and boost productivity for SystemVerilog and VHDL designers.  The new tool, Studio XPRT, has been integrated into the next-generation version of the Sigasi Studio 4.0, the company’s Integrated Development Environment.

Sigasi will showcase the Sigasi Studio 4.0 platform, which offers advanced programming assistance for hardware design and verification teams, and Studio XPRT at the 55th Design Automation Conference (DAC)June 24- 28, 2018at Moscone West Center, San Francisco, Calif.

Sigasi, through its flagship Sigasi Studio product, has redefined digital hardware design and improved engineering productivity for 10 years. The introduction of Studio XPRT gives hardware design and verification engineers new code editing, checking and browsing features to lower the time spent reviewing and validating their projects.

Studio XPRT has integrated visual feedback and graphical navigation features with a flexible integrated documentation feature within the trusted productivity platform Sigasi Studio 4.0. All SystemVerilog and VHDL users now will have access to features with block diagrams, finite state machine and hierarchy views.  Having these views will help users validate code faster, get insights within their project and make reuse of legacy code much easier. As with all Sigasi products, Studio XPRT works with unfinished code and delivers with immediate (‘type-time’) feedback.

“Our continued conversations with design and verification engineers show a strong demand for new visual tools for SystemVerilog and VHDL. This has led to a new product in the Sigasi Studio line,” says Bob Seghers, General Manager, Sigasi.  “We have used our experience and the industry best practices to create the next-generation version of Sigasi Studio and develop the new Studio XPRT tool.”

Hendrik Eeckhaut, CTO, Sigasi, added: “The improvements in Sigasi Studio 4.0 are timely as customers wrestle with crucial compliance standards like ISO 26262 and DO-254. Customers are reporting significant drops in the time spent reviewing and validating their projects as they comply with standards like these.”

About Sigasi Studio Platform

Sigasi Studio dramatically improves the FPGA and ASIC designer’s productivity by providing support to write, inspect and modify digital circuit designs intuitively. As you type, Sigasi Studio marks syntax errors so they can be immediately fixed. By understanding the HDL languages Sigasi Studio can support advanced features such as intelligent auto-completes and code refactoring, making Verilog, VHDL and SystemVerilog design entry easier and more efficient. Sigasi Studio has become the essential next-generation Intelligent Development Environment (IDE) for hardware designers.

Sigasi will be exhibiting at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) being held at Moscone West Center in San Francisco, Calif., June 24 – 28, 2018 at Booth 2351.  To set up a private demo please contact
