Real Intent Delivers Next Release of Meridian Constraints for Advanced Sign-off of SoC Designs

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Dec. 2, 2013 Real Intent, Inc., a leading provider of EDA advanced sign-off verification solutions, today announced the next version of its Meridian Constraints product for comprehensive automated design constraint management. The new Version 5.0 software release adds enhanced design constraints and hardware description language support to help designers meet their timing goals for complex designs. It maintains Real Intent’s product leadership in delivering what the company believes are the industry’s fastest-performance and highest-capacity RTL verification tools. 

Version 5.0 features the following enhancements:

  • Better performance for faster turnaround
  • Complete mixed-language support (VHDL + Verilog/SystemVerilog)
  • Processing and selection of design files for more efficient workflow
  • Enriched support of SDC naming schemes used by different synthesis tools for easier integration
  • New commands for asynchronous clock definition and generation for CDC analysis

Sarath Kirihennedige, senior manager of product engineering at Real Intent, said, “Designers no longer can rely on spreadsheets and manual methods to organize the timing constraints for their designs because of growing complexity. Meridian Constraints provides the automation they need to create, manage, and verify all aspects of their SDC, to ensure their timing goals are met. The new version 5.0 release also enables other tools in the design flow to deliver a more efficient CDC analysis, and makes low-power and X-verification flows more successful.” For additional comments from Sarath, click on a video interview here.

Comprehensive SDC Management and Verification

Meridian Constraints offers comprehensive high-performance constraint validation, constraints template generation, coverage analysis, equivalence checking and timing exception verification capabilities for timing constraints employed across all phases of the synthesis and implementation flow. Real Intent believes no other product delivers such comprehensive SDC management and verification capabilities.


The new release of Meridian Constraints is available now. Pricing depends on product configuration. For more information, please email Email Contact.
