San Jose, CA – June 16, 2005
– Poseidon Design Systems today announced that its Triton Tool suite provides direct support for the use of Synplicity synthesis tools.
“The fundamental value proposition of ESL (Electronic System-Level) design tools is the speed with which they enable system architects and designers to make informed architectural changes to a system to optimize its performance,” said Andrew Haines, the vice president of marketing at Synplicity. “Poseidon’s Triton Tool suite places this power in the hands of FPGA and ASIC engineers, and we are delighted that Poseidon has chosen to enable these customers to use of our synthesis tools in their design flows.”
The Triton Tools environment augments existing design flows to optimize the performance, power, and cost of processor-based architectures. Two tools comprise the Triton tool suite: Triton Tuner and Triton Builder. Triton Tuner gives ASIC designers the ability to rapidly evaluate their architectures much earlier in the design effort, thus uncovering performance bottlenecks and eliminating costly architectural rework later in the project. Triton Builder enables designers to rapidly and predictability repartition their hardware and software, adding sophisticated hardware acceleration modules to accelerate algorithmic computation.
“We share a common mission with Synplicity to enable designer productivity and speed time to market, and we are pleased to mutually support same type of customers,” stated Ravi Janak, CEO and President of Poseidon Design Systems.
“As a system-based EDA provider, we can ensure that our tools satisfy the needs of the global community of FPGA, platform ASIC and cell-based ASIC designers. To meet the needs of Synplicity’s growing customer base, we have tested RTL interoperability between our Triton Tool suite and Synplicity’s Synplify Pro® and Amplify® RapidChip products,” said Farzad Zarrinfar, Poseidon’s vice president of worldwide sales and marketing. “Moreover, this interoperability will allow designers to concentrate on design creativity, not on EDA tool integration.” About Poseidon Design Systems
