EVE integrates DW-FPGA for FPGA compatibility

EVE, which specializes in hardware/software co-verification, has announced the availability of DW-FPGA, a DesignWare foundation library for use with FPGA synthesis software.

DW-FPGA offers RTL source code for the most commonly used DesignWare Foundation Library intellectual property components from Synopsys Inc. DW-FPGA supports Xinlinx Synthesis Technology from Xilinx, Quartus from Altera, Synplicity's SynplifyPro and Precision from Mentor Graphics Corp., along with languages Verilog, VHDL and SystemVerilog. It can be used with or without EVE's ZeBu and for simulation, emulation, prototyping and FPGA designs.

When implementing an ASIC design on an FPGA or an FPGA-prototyping board, the original ASIC design often uses DesignWare components not readily available for an FPGA implementation. With DW-FPGA, whenever ASIC-based RTL code references a DesignWare component of the foundation library, the synthesis tool automatically uses the synthesizable definition contained in the provided source code to infer an optimized FPGA description. DW-FPGA includes typical DesignWare functions such as adders, subtracters, multipliers, dividers, cosines and square roots.

DW-FPGA will be demonstrated, along with EVE's entire line of hardware/software coverification solutions, during the 45th Design Automation Conference June 9-12 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.
