SystemVerilog Analyzer, Static Elaborator Serve as Front End to New Synthesis Software for Asynchronous Chip Design
ALAMEDA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 28, 2009 — Tiempo, provider of breakthrough, ultra low-power asynchronous intellectual property (IP) for embedded applications, has chosen Verific Design Automation, a de facto industry standard, as the front end for its software products.
Tiempo licenses Verific’s SystemVerilog analyzer and static elaborator to serve as the front end to its Asynchronous Circuit Compiler (ACC), synthesis software that generates asynchronous and delay-insensitive circuits from a model written in SystemVerilog.
“Verific’s software serves as an essential component of our product development plan and gave us an immediate head start on worldwide product deployment,” remarks Serge Maginot, chief executive officer of Tiempo.
Verific’s software serves as the front end to Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools, such as Tiempo’s ACC, for exploring, navigating, analyzing, modifying and documenting designs. All are written in platform-independent C++ that compiles on Solaris, HP-UX, Linux and Windows platforms. Each is licensed as source code and come with support and maintenance.
Michiel Ligthart, Verific’s chief operating officer, notes: “Tiempo’s innovative product strategy and roadmap make it clear that this is a company to watch. I was excited to learn how its team applied our SystemVerilog parser to the problem of asynchronous synthesis. Verific is pleased to have a role in its success.”
Tiempo develops and markets innovative Core IPs for the design of chips that are ultra-low power/noise/voltage, robust versus PVT variations and secured. Tiempo IP portfolio includes asynchronous and delay-insensitive cores of microcontrollers, microprocessors and crypto-processors, and is supported by an automated synthesis tool that uses SystemVerilog as input language. Targeted core applications are chips for low-power embedded electronics and secured devices. Tiempo is located at: 110 rue Blaise Pascal, 38330 Montbonnot, France. Telephone: +33 4 76 61 10 00.
