There is an increasing use of programmable chips thanks to the rise in capacity and reduction in power at each process node. Designers are now experiencing some tough new challenges. For example, 28nm FPGAs have the equivalent capacity of 50 million ASIC gates and this drives a need for more powerful synthesis tools. Synplify synthesis tools provide designers with methodologies that deliver automation, faster turnaround times, more predictable timing closure, design for high reliability, power management, advanced verification techniques and the integration of IP from many sources. The Synplify toolset automates many functions so that designers can focus on their own product differentiation, while meeting schedule and cost targets.
