Forte Design Systems has announced Hitachi Information & Communication Engineering, Ltd., of Yokohama, Japan, has selected its Cynthesizer SystemC highlevel synthesis (HLS) to deploy within its LSI Logic Design Services business.
Forte says Cynthesizer is the first high-level design solution that closes the gap between electronic system level (ESL) design and register transfer level (RTL)-to-GDSII flows. It provides a complete design environment that includes behavioral synthesis and verification as well as FPGA prototyping and design management. It generates production-quality RTL code using a high-level SystemC-transaction level modeling (TLM) design description as input. Cynthesizer provides an open and customizable environment based on standard languages and application programming interfaces (APIs).
