Andover, MA, November 17, 2009 — Paradigm Works, Inc., a world-class leader in ASIC and FPGA software and development services, today announced that it has released its RegWorks™ Spec2Reg tool as Free Open Source Software (FOSS) for the chip development community. Spec2Reg provides development teams a fully automated path for taking register definitions from design specification to verification implementation.
The current release of RegWorks Spec2Reg includes predefined templates that enable project teams to translate their Microsoft Word based register definitions to Synopsys' Register Abstraction Layer Format(RALF). The RALF file can then be used to auto-generate requisite SystemVerilog classes for the defined register set.
In addition to the RALF-enabled templates provided with Spec2Reg, Paradigm Works has made the tool fully flexible such that it can output any desired register file format. Development teams can leverage this flexibility by creating Microsoft Word based templates for their project's specific register file output format.
Feel free to contact us or download RegWorks Spec2Reg to understand why other industry-leading companies are using Spec2Reg on their chip development projects. The datasheet is available for circulation to your project team.
