Aldec Forms Strategic Partnership with Synac to Offer IP Customers New Resources
Henderson, Nevada, June 29, 2000 -- Aldec, Inc., a leading supplier of HDL design entry and verification software for programmable logic design, announced today the simulation and verification support of Intellectual Property Cores from Synac. The new strategic partnership developed with Synac, a company specializing in VHDL Training and Motor Drive Applications, provides customers with a complete IP solution for system integration and measurements. The goal of the partnership is to streamline the design process for designers in need of motor drive applications.
"Together with Active-HDL, it is possible for us to develop our VHDL cores to the specifications that we desire. Not only is Active-HDL easy to use, this tool is well integrated and powerful. Aldec is very receptive to design engineer's verification requirements and readily provides it in their software " stated Synac founder, Roman Buechler.
"We are pleased to add Synac to our IP Partner Program. By designing their IP with Active-HDL, we know their cores are reliable and that our mutual customers will be able to implement the IP with ease and adherence to the standards of design," said Aldec IP Marketing Manager, Creighton Roethler.
Active-HDL and Synac cores are available today. For more information or a free evaluation version of Active-HDL, visit the Aldec website at www.aldec.com. Further information about Synac and their IP Cores can be found at www.synac.com.
Synac was founded in December of 1999. The company aim is to provide solutions for system integration and measurements. The company has been instrumental is training and in activating the Swiss VHDL Homepage at www.vhdl.ch. Synac specializes in motor drive applications. The cores developed to this point provide an easy way to link a motor and a field bus. The cores help to improve performance by reducing system components.
