Bluespec Joins The SPIRIT Consortium to Advance IP Reuse Interoperability Standards for SoC Design; EDA Company Adds ESL Synthesis Expertise to Further Standards Development

WALTHAM, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Jan. 17, 2006— Bluespec Inc., developer of the only ESL synthesis toolset for control logic and complex datapaths in chip design, has joined The SPIRIT Consortium with the goal to advance interoperability standards for intellectual property (IP) reuse in system-on-chip (SoC) design.

Bluespec's decision to become a member of The SPIRIT Consortium, a global organization focused on establishing multi-faceted IP/tool integration standards that drive sustainable growth in electronic design, was due to The Consortium's design reuse standardization efforts. "We're active promoters of design reuse and interoperability," says George Harper, Bluespec's vice president of marketing, who notes that its underlying synthesis technology automates many aspects of reuse. "We are eager to contribute our expertise to The SPIRIT Consortium."

Adds Ralph von Vignau, chairman of The SPIRIT Consortium: "The Consortium welcomes Bluespec. Their understanding of the flow from ESL design to implementation will be helpful to the Consortium as we extend our current specification to cover comprehensive interoperability between tools and support of ESL."

About Bluespec

Bluespec Inc. manufactures an industry standards-based Electronic Design Automation (EDA) toolset that significantly raises the level of abstraction for hardware design while retaining the ability to automatically synthesize high-quality RTL, without compromising speed, power or area. The toolset, the only one focused on control and complex datapaths, allows ASIC and FPGA designers to reduce design time, bugs and re-spins that contribute to product delays and escalating costs.
