About the Synfora PICO High Level Synthesis Platform
The PICO High Level Synthesis Platform provides productivity gains by creating application accelerators from an untimed C algorithm at the highest level of abstraction. PICO yields QoR (quality of results) that is competitive with manual design by using a unique parallelizing compiler and multi-level hierarchical abstraction and IP reuse. It offers the highest possible level abstraction for large designs, and has been proven to provide huge productivity gains on the largest production designs, not just on small blocks.
Synfora, Inc. is the premier provider of high level synthesis tools used to design complex systems-on-chips (SoCs) and FPGAs. Synfora's PICO C Synthesis tool offers designers of large, complex subsystems productivity gains at the highest-level design abstraction and delivers high QoR. Synfora serves customers worldwide in the audio, video, imaging, wireless, and security segments of the integrated circuit (IC) design market. The company's investors are ATA Ventures, Foundation Capital, U.S. Venture Partners, Wafra, and Xilinx. For the latest information on Synfora, please visit http://www.synfora.com.
