Mentor Graphics Corp. announced that Siemens Information and Communications Networks has reduced C source to register transfer level (RTL) implementation time by 50 percent on a strategic project using their latest Catapult C synthesis tool.

As a result, Siemens ICN has adopted the tool, which will be used by the Munich-based design team to develop an ASIC for a VoIP application.

Using the Mentor Catapult C Synthesis tool, Siemens' design team discovered that it could automatically generate correct RTL for a complex VoIP algorithm in half the time required with conventional manual methods. The synthesized RTL code readily met placement and routing timing, while satisfying the project's latency requirements.
