EDA Playground adds Synopsys VCS support to serve its growing user base

Ringwood, UK, & San Jose, USA, 9June 2015 – Following its acquisition of EDA Playground earlier this year, Doulos is pleased to announce extended support for its growing community of users worldwide with the addition of the Synopsys VCS® Functional Verification Solution.

“EDA Playground has a significant part to play in Doulos’ commitment to invest in training the next generation of electronic system designers. EDA Playground is a free-to-access online learning resource where engineers can practice their coding skills and share code snippets with others in the community,” says Rob Hurley
Doulos CEO.

“As we look back proudly on 25 years of delivering engineering know-how to engineers worldwide, it’s exciting that an EDA and semiconductor IP leader like Synopsys is supporting us in ensuring that aspiring designers can develop their skills by accessing such market-leading solutions.”

“This collaboration will enable broader and deeper adoption of key subjects like SystemVerilog and UVM,” says Michael Sanie, Synopsys Senior Director of Verification Marketing. “Synopsys is supportive of initiatives from partners such as Doulos that will assist more customers to become effective and productive in addressing their verification challenges.”

Doulos plans include innovations and extensions to EDA Playground in support of the roll-out of online training and blended learning solutions. “Today’s engineers can access so much of the information they need online,” says John Aynsley, Doulos CTO, “To some extent that goes for acquiring knowledge as well; but productive design requires engineers that are highly skilled; and skills are only sharpened through hands-on practise with the support of experts who know how to teach. The best of tomorrow’s training solutions will blend all of the above. EDA Playground will play a key part in enabling this.”

About EDA Playground

EDA Playground gives engineers immediate hands-on access to simulating small amounts of SystemVerilog, Verilog, VHDL, C++, SystemC and other HDLs. All that’s needed is a web browser. The goal is to accelerate learning of design and test-bench development with easier code sharing, and with simple access to EDA tools and libraries. EDA Playground is specifically designed for small prototypes and examples. It was developed by Victor Lyuboslavsky of Victor EDA, Inc and was acquired by Doulos in early 2015. Its growing user community is testimony to a great idea well executed.  Tools currently supported include solutions from Aldec, Inc and Cadence, Inc. Synopsys VCS support will be available in the Q3 release.
