Forte Design Systems is partnering with CircuitSutra to provide VLSI design services throughout India. Forte and CircuitSutra to co-develop ARM AMBA AXI and OCP-IP models compatible with Forte's Cynthesizer SystemC high-level synthesis (HLS) and to train Indian engineers in using Cynthesizer.
"CircuitSutra's mission to help semiconductor companies and the electronics systems companies adopt SystemC based ESL methodologies neatly corresponds to Forte's," remarks Brett Cline, Forte's vice president of marketing and sales. "India offers tremendous opportunity to expand SystemC HLS usage and we believe CircuitSutra will play a big role in this effort."
Adds Umesh Sisodia, chief executive officer of CircuitSutra: "Forte's continued focus on SystemC-based HLS is impressive, as is its commitment to support and service. We take pleasure in having the opportunity to work with Forte. The ESL IP that we will co-develop will help the mutual customers to quick start their HLS based design projects."
