Blue Pearl Software, a provider of EDA software that accelerates FPGA verification, has revealed that it is shipping Release 7.1 of its EDA software, Blue Pearl Software Suite, for Windows and Linux OS. It includes many clock domain crossing (CDC) enhancements including CDC waivers and User Grey Cell, the firm noted.

Quality IP and processors are critical to SoC designers worldwide due to the increasing number of systems using FPGAs in production or as prototypes. However, designers do not always have access to synthesisable RTL descriptions and thus resolve to black-boxing these modules. This results in verification blind spots that prevent the detection of critical metastability issues during the verification phase. The User Grey Cell methodology not only solves it but provides the end user with a flexible use model to catch chip-level CDC. Release 7.1 includes sample designs to illustrate the key concepts/features.

Release 7.1 new features include the User Grey Cell, CDC Waivers, CDC checks more granular, Black box signal direction detection and FPGA-vendor specific options pages.

Release 7.1 of the Blue Pearl Software Suite is available now. The base product, RTL analysis, starts at $10K for a floating 1-YR TBL, with the other options FSM, CDC and Create priced at an additional $5K, $10K and $15K respectively. The Blue Pearl Software Suite is also available for online purchase via the Embedded Software Store or the Blue Pearl Software online store.
