Mento Graphics Modelsim
As advanced FPGAs have grown to ASIC proportions in terms of size and complexity, their design and verification have become correspondingly more difficult. This has driven the need for greater expertise in the design and verification of FPGAs. ModelSim provides industry leading standards-based simulation and verification platform for the FPGA market. We help you address and overcome challenges that you face everyday with the following solutions:
ModelSim offers a native environment with support for multiple languages including VHDL, Verilog, SystemC, and SystemVerilog. The integrated verification and debug environment finds more bugs faster and enhances performance with the mixed-HDL flow.
Mento Graphics Synthesis
Precision Synthesis is the most advanced synthesis tool for all FPGA applications including complex designs and ASIC prototyping. Precision Synthesis forms the centerpiece of Mentor Graphics FPGA flow — the industry's most comprehensive vendor-independent solution for FPGA design. Precision Synthesis provides high quality of results, interactive design flows and award winning analysis. These capabilities reduce design iterations, and enable faster, more predictable completion of designs.
With over 3000 seats worldwide, Mentor Graphics synthesis solutions support all the major FPGA vendors: Actel, Altera, Atmel, Lattice, QuickLogic, and Xilinx.
Mento Graphics Catapult C Synthesis
Catapult C Synthesis is for ASIC and FPGA hardware designers of portable wireless, video, and image processing equipment who need to deliver optimal implementations with aggressive time-to-market requirements. Catapult C Synthesis is a high-level synthesis tool that uses industry-standard ANSI C++ to generate correct-by-construction, high-quality RTL 10-100x faster than other methods. Unlike traditional RTL design methodologies, Catapult C Synthesis enables the designer to pick the best architecture for given performance/area/power requirement and avoids the design errors introduced from hand coding the RTL description.
