Grenoble, France, February 12, 2018 -- Defacto Technologies today announced that Synapse Design has tested STAR in collaboration with a major US based semiconductor company in the GPU market. Synapse Design used the RTL design restructuring capabilities of the Defacto’s STAR platform to generate clean and ready for synthesis RTL code.
“The semiconductor market is increasingly competitive particularly for end applications such as the GPU market that has stringent speed and time requirements. Synapse Design improved simulation time by 4x when using STAR in this well-known semiconductor company’s design flow,” said Marco Brambilla Associate Vice-President, Synapse Design. “In one case, thanks to STAR, we decreased simulation time from 54 hours to 10 hours under same conditions which is a huge breakthrough!”
“The collaboration with Synapse Design and their client who is a leader in GPU market, enhances and reinforces our capabilities in providing RTL design solutions to meet aggressive design time. Their tests showcase the uniqueness of STAR especially when it comes to complex designs in achieving significant time savings”, said Chouki Aktouf, Founder & CEO of Defacto Technologies. Mr. Aktouf added, “Synapse Design and their end client can now achieve an edge and competitiveness in the market with the added-value provided by the STAR platform”.
