"Calypto's new focus on ESL Implementation meant that we needed to expand to our executive team. Shawn is clearly an expert in high-level synthesis because of his experience in managing the Catapult product line, which under his leadership grew to nearly a 50% market share position," said Doug Aitelli, Chief Executive Officer at Calypto.
In August, Calypto announced the Catapult® C Synthesis product from Mentor Graphics would become part of Calypto creating the first company that has HLS, formal equivalence checking and automatic power optimization under one umbrella. The combination of these technologies positions Calypto to be the first company capable of delivering a robust ESL hardware implementation flow to the mainstream ASIC designer.
"Because Calypto is now the leading player in the HLS and ESL hardware design markets, its platforms -- Catapult, SLEC and PowerPro -- all represent attractive solutions to the world's top tier chip designers," added Shawn McCloud. "Our products put Calypto in a unique position to deliver all the pieces of a complete ESL hardware implementation flow that includes high-level synthesis, verification and power optimization."
Prior to his position and 18 years at Mentor, Shawn worked for Motorola for 8 years. He has a B.S. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Case Western Reserve University in 1986.
