Denali Selects Bluespec Synthesis for Memory Controller IP Development

Bluespec, Inc., developers of the industry’s only general purpose high-level synthesis solution, announced that Denali Software, Inc., selected Bluespec’s high-level synthesis toolset as part of its next-generation technology platform for future memory controller IP development. Denali Software chose Bluespec’s toolset because of the productivity improvements it offers, its ability to support complex, highly parameterized designs, and its capability to satisfy a variety of needs.

“We chose Bluespec’s general purpose high-level synthesis solution and view it as a valuable technology to augment our existing design flow in a number of areas,” said Brian Gardner, vice president of IP products at Denali Software, Inc. “We envision using it to perform architectural exploration and to create SystemC models as well as portions of our design. As a leader in the standards-based IP market, Denali is constantly challenging the state of the art in pursuit of better technology, higher productivity, and providing superior customer value.”

“We’re very pleased that Denali Software, one of the industry’s most reputable IP companies, has selected Bluespec’s toolset for enhancing a next-generation controller product,” said Charlie Hauck, chief executive officer of Bluespec, Inc. “Bluespec’s extreme reuse and control-adaptive parameterization is extremely well suited to the development needs of complex IP. Companies are selecting Bluespec for modeling, verification and implementation because we are the first solution that raises the level of abstraction and delivers no-compromise synthesis across the board, for both algorithmic and control IP. Unlike C-to-RTL synthesis, which is limited to DSP-oriented block-level IP, Bluespec delivers the general-purpose capabilities demanded by commercial IP.”

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. Elevating System-on-Chip (SoC) modeling, verification and implementation with atomic transactions, the only high-level abstraction for hardware concurrency, the general purpose toolset allows ASIC and FPGA teams to reduce development time, bugs and re-spins that contribute to product delays and escalating costs.
