Verific's Netlist-Only Parser Used in Achronix CAD Environment

ALAMEDA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 2, 2008— Verific Design Automation today announced that Achronix Semiconductor Corporation, developer of the worlds fastest field programmable gate array (FPGA) called Speedster, uses Verifics Netlist-Only Parser in its Achronix CAD Environment (ACE).

Verific is best known for its Verilog, SystemVerilog and VHDL hardware description level (HDL) parsers and elaborators. Its Netlist-Only Parser includes a Verilog netlist reader and a generic hierarchical netlist database to help reduce development time for products operating at the gate level rather than the register transfer level (RTL).

The Achronix Speedster family of FPGAs delivers speeds up to 1.5 gigahertz (GHz), a three-fold increase in performance over traditional FPGAs. Achronix selected Verifics Netlist-Only Parser to speed time-to-market and because it provided fast Verilog and EDIF parsing, plus a complete extendable netlist data structure and netlist manipulation functions.

Building ACE leveraging Verifics tool saved us a significant amount of time and effort, says Raymond Nijssen, chief software architect at Achronix Semiconductor. Their industry-proven software and customer support enabled us to focus on developing our key software capabilities.

Speedster is an amazing FPGA, remarks Michiel Ligthart, Verifics chief operating officer. Being part of the development software that enables Speedsters disruptive lead in performance makes us proud of our own software.

As with all of Verific products, the Netlist-Only Parser is written in C++ and is shipped as source code.
