SocionextAdopts DefactoSolution for RTL and Gate-level Design Analysis and Building

Grenoble, France, June 1st, 2015 --- Defacto Technologies S.A. today announced that Socionext Inc., a leading provider of System-on-Chip solutions, has adopted Defacto Technologies’ STAR RTL Design solution to provide unique RTL editing earlier in the design flow and very highly rapid gate-level design rearchitecturing, without requiring additional engineering resources. 

“We often need RTL and gate-level design change in order to integrate them on SoCs. However those changes could be not convenient for logic designer while doing functional design and verification.” said Akihiro Yoshitake, General Manager, SoC Design Division at Socionext. “We found Defacto’s STAR has rich and unique feature of APIs to analyze and build design quickly without being intrusive logic designers work. We will take advantage of the STAR RTL Design solution into our complex SoC design flow.”

“We are excited about our collaboration with Socionext. Their designs showcase the capabilities of -STAR RTL Design solution, especially when it comes to complex designs where our distinctive capabilities will help Socionext engineers redesign very complex designs either at RTL or gate-level with a high speedup”, said Chouki Aktouf, Founder & CEO of Defacto Technologies. Mr. Aktouf added, “New design and verifications possibilities are now open to Socionext designers. This will positively impact design quality and will help containing design cycles”
