Reporting Happiness: Not as Easy as You Think

Sunday, January 18th, 2015

Like other successful design automation companies we have many happy customers that use our tools.  Marketeers like myself crave getting customer stories and comments to share with the world at large.   While an individual engineer is happy to share his point of view why he likes one of our tools, before it can be made public and ascribed to engineer X at company Y, it must pass through a gauntlet of approvals by upper management at the customer.  Often there is a “quid pro quo” in this process.  In other words, to get company management to approve the quote, some benefit in the form of additional pricing discount, or extra short-term licenses is negotiated.  Or sometimes management sees Real Intent’s static solutions as one of their ‘secret weapons’ and don’t want to share the good news with potential competitors.


Does Your Synthesis Code Play Well With Others?

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Recently, Real Intent put out a new release of our Ascent Lint tool, which checks your RTL to make sure it meets the standards for good coding practices.  Linting has the advantages of delivering very quick feedback on troublesome and even dangerous coding style that causes problems that can show up in simulation, but will likely take a much longer time to uncover. With the right lint tool, you can catch the “low-hanging fruit” before tackling functional errors.  In a recent blog, we discussed how a staged analysis starting with Initial checks, followed by Mature and Handoff checks, can very efficiently get you to ‘hardened’ RTL code that is ready to be integrated with the rest of the design.
