Targeted at designers who prototype ASICs using high-end FPGAs, the Design Compiler FPGA (DC FPGA) from Synopsys Inc. now supports Xilinx's Virtex-4 family of domain optimized FPGAs and ISE 6.3i place and route software.

Large, complex FPGAs such as Virtex-4 require the ASIC-strength synthesis technology in DC FPGA, Synopsys said. DC FPGA, along with Synopsys' Formality formal verification solution and ASIC IP support such as Synopsys DesignWare IP products, helps ensure that ASIC designers have a proven, fast path to ASIC prototyping using Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGAs.

"Designers prototyping in high performance FPGAs such as the Xilinx Virtex-4 family depend on the superior timing performance and ASIC flow compatibility that DC FPGA has to offer," claimed Gal Hasson, Director of Marketing, ASIC and FPGA synthesis at Synopsys.

Steve Lass, director of Software Marketing at Xilinx, added, "ASIC prototyping customers who require a proven ASIC design methodology using high-end synthesis and formal verification, can now find a Xilinx-preferred solution from Synopsys."
