S2C Adopts Verific's HDL Component Software for FPGA Prototyping

Verific Design Automation announced that S2C Inc. has adopted its hardware description level (HDL) Component Software to serve as the register transfer level (RTL) front end for S2C’s newest line of field programmable gate array (FPGA)-based electronic system level (ESL) and system on chip (SoC) prototyping products.

S2C’s FPGA-based ESL solutions enable designers to access intellectual property in FPGA-based formats to assemble SoC prototypes and concurrently work on software development. S2C’s products include: TAI Pod, a hardware module that links FPGA prototypes to PC through a USB2.0 interface; TAI Player, a software application that automates compile flow and interfaces to TAI Pod for runtime, debugging, and security functions; and TAI Logic Module, a scalable rapid SoC prototyping module.

Verific’s HDL Component Software of SystemVerilog, Verilog and VHDL parsers, analyzers and elaborators has been integrated with S2C’s TAI Player and is used for exploring, navigating, analyzing, documenting and modifying large designs. Following Verific’s standard business model, S2C licenses the software as source code, and has access to Verific’s comprehensive online support and maintenance.

“Verific is a best-in-class provider of HDL Component Software,” notes Mon-Ren Chene, chief technology officer of S2C. “The ability to seamlessly incorporate Verific’s software into our design flow is a key reason we can offer powerful and stable FPGA-based ESL tools to our customers.”

“Our partnership with S2C has been productive for both companies,” says Michiel Ligthart, Verific’s chief operating officer. “S2C’s innovative SoC prototyping solution is quickly gaining attention in the marketplace and we welcome the opportunity to be part of its success.”

Verific will demonstrate its HDL Component Software in Booth #3464 during the 44th Design Automation Conference (DAC) June 4-8 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif. To schedule a demonstration, visit Verific’s website.
