Synplicity Inc. and Actel Corp. have expanded their OEM agreement to deliver "exceptional value and a deep, on-going technology roadmap for Actel customers."

Under the terms of the multi-year agreement, Actel obtains the right to distribute the Synplify Pro, Identify and Synplify DSP software solutions to its customers as part of its Libero Integrated Design Environment (IDE). The expanded agreement will also provide Actel customers with future access to Synplicity's innovative physical synthesis technology.

"Actel's customers are the big winners with this expanded OEM agreement," said Dennis Kish, senior vice president of marketing and sales at Actel. "By delivering Synplicity's best-in-class tools as part of our Libero IDE at current prices, we provide designers an incredible value."

According to the press release, the expanded OEM agreement leverages the strengths of each company to improve the FPGA designer's experience.

"Actel delivers a broad range of advanced FPGA solutions, including its low-cost ProASIC3 for value-based applications, high-density RTAX-S for space applications and the new Actel Fusion Programmable System Chip family, which is unique in its ability to support mixed-signal designs," said Joe Gianelli, Synplicity's vice president of business development. "We have been working closely with Actel to optimize our leading-edge technologies to capitalize on the features of these architectures. We believe that through this close partnership, we can offer Actel's customers advanced design tools that will enable them to achieve optimal device performance."
