SAN DIEGO, CA. –– June 6, 2011 –– Veridae Systems and Mentor Graphics today announced they’ve partnered to support a complete FPGA development flow combining Mentor Graphic’s Precision® Synthesis FPGA design tools and Veridae’s Certus or Corus validation and debug solutions. The combination of tools will accelerate the development, verification and time-to market of single and multi-FPGA based systems.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Mentor Graphics to integrate Corus and Certus with the Precision Synthesis tools,” said Jim Derbyshire, Veridae’s chief executive officer. “The tools seamlessly interface to offer an easy to use and complete FPGA development flow including simulation, synthesis and on-chip debug. For the first time, design engineers have access to the critical link from real hardware back to the design.”
Both the Corus and Certus software suites from Veridae systems have been validated for use in Mentor Graphics’ Precision Synthesis design flow. The Corus and Certus software suites are based on Veridae’s proven technology, which provides users with a synchronized view of FPGA systems both on- and off-chip, across devices and timing domains. The on-chip view can be also synchronized with software debuggers and test equipment to give a total system view. With access to any signal and any time, designers and validation engineers can quickly pinpoint failures and fix root causes. The enhanced visibility of Veridae’s technology allows debug problems that previously required weeks, or even months, to be resolved in hours.
“Combining the vendor independence and advanced features of Precision Synthesis with Veridae’s unique approach to FPGA prototyping will benefit designers in implementation and debug,” said Daniel Platzker, FPGA synthesis product line director at Mentor Graphics. “Veridae’s design visibility is an effective complement to Mentor Graphic’s comprehensive FPGA flow, and we look forward to working with our mutual customers to realize faster time to market and lower overall development cost.”
Corus and Certus are available now from Veridae Systems, and Precision Synthesis is available from Mentor Graphics. The companies will jointly support users interfacing the products to establish an optimal FPGA development flow.
