Signalcrafters Achieves Design Goals and Cuts FPGA Cost by 50%
In Signalcrafters’ first attempt to use an FPGA for DSP algorithms, their development environment kept producing erroneous results. After evaluating the other solutions available on the market, Signalcrafters found that only one — Synplify Pro® software from Synopsys — generated output that worked.

Faraday Technology Corporation Achieves Over 50% Performance Improvement on PCIe Controller Designs with Synplify
Faraday Technology Corporation, a leading IC design services company and intellectual property (IP) provider, had to boost performance from 80 MHz to 125 MHz on a pair of new designs for a key product line, the PCIe controller IP family. By employing the Synplify® Premier and Identify® tools from Synopsys, Faraday not only achieved its 125 MHz goal but also saved on time to market, area, and cost.

IMEC Surpasses Critical Performance Goal for C-Programmable
IMEC, a European nanoelectronics research institution, used Synplify® Premier software from Synopsys to demonstrate that its C-programmable reconfigurable processor architecture, ADRES, is feasible for use in portable wireless multimedia devices. The entire processor system was successfully prototyped for a multimedia ADRES processor instance on a Xilinx Virtex®-4 FPGA through use of the Synplify Premier tool. "It is clear that for 90-nm FPGAs and beyond, the timing closure offered by the Synplify Premier tool is crucial."
Maryse Wouters, Activity Leader of the Integration Team, IMEC

SeaMicro – Synplify Pro Enables First Time Success
We were very impressed with Synplify Pro's ability to meet all targets - area, performance and timing - on the first try. We succeeded in reducing both risk and costs for multiple designs.

STMicroelectronics Uses Synplify Premier to Quickly Obtain a High-Performance FPGA-Based Prototype
We were able to ramp up our design prototype very early and could iterate quickly with this high-level synthesis flow. The flow allowed us to cut months off our schedule. Using Synphony Model Compiler, we could explore the results of using different architectures. Using Synplify Premier we quickly obtained a high-performance FPGA prototype.

Teradici – ASIC Prototyping Made Fast and Efficient with Synplify Premier
Other tools can't handle the complex constructs of the ASICs we're working on. Only Synplify Premier gives us the ability to synthesize native ASIC code untouched for our FPGA prototype.
