New ESL Methodology Incorporates CSR Automation Management for Hardware and Software Design Accelerating Development Process
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- March 27, 2008 -- Denali Software, Inc., a world-leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and intellectual property (IP), today announced it has licensed its Blueprint(TM) product to Atheros Communications, Inc., a leading developer of advanced wireless and wired solutions. Atheros will employ Blueprint's SoC design tools in developing the company's Radio-on-Chip for Mobile(R) (ROCm(R)) solutions and other products. The Denali Blueprint Compiler was specifically designed for hardware and software engineers to generate and manage all control registers throughout the design process, to speed pre-silicon validation, maintain architectural quality and thus, increase productivity.
"The Blueprint system-level design tool significantly reduces integration time, helps ensure consistency and eases propagation of changes throughout the design and verification process," said Steve Padnos, methodology architect for Atheros. "Atheros selected Denali because it provides an integral and valuable platform solution for SoC design."
"Denali understands the challenges facing design teams and the error-prone processes that occur between the register specification and implementation prior to finalizing the design requirements," said Mark Gogolewski, CTO at Denali Software. "Our customers, such as Atheros, can utilize Blueprint Compiler to significantly shorten the time required to pre-silicon hardware/software integration and build complex SoCs."
About Denali Blueprint
Denali Blueprint is a SystemRDL compiler that enables a system-level approach to automating specification, view generation, and management of control registers for IP and SoC design. Blueprint will generate necessary outputs and views for design, verification, documentation, software development, post silicon debug and even enables early software development with SystemC(TM) Transaction Level Models. Blueprint guarantees interoperability with other EDA tools by inputting and outputting IP-XACT and SystemRDL formats.
