Mentor Graphics has picked up certain assets of Oasys Design Systems Inc., creator of the Oasys RealTime RTL physical synthesis platform. According to Mentor, the product would help SoC/ASIC design teams to realize improved quality of results and faster turnaround time for today's complex SoCs, ASICs and IP blocks. The acquisition aligns with Mentor's goal to deliver a best-in-class digital implementation platform to address the performance, power and area (PPA) challenges at advanced nodes, added the firm.

Oasys Design Systems is a privately held company founded by a team of RTL Synthesis veterans with decades of experience delivering successful synthesis products. The Oasys team led by its founders, Paul van Besouw, Johnson Limqueco and Harm Arts, has created a next-generation RTL physical synthesis technology, which optimizes at a higher level of abstraction.

This enables faster turnaround times and the capacity to synthesize the entire top level of the largest designs, all while being physically aware for better correlation with physical design. Its "placement first" synthesis methodology and integrated RTL floor-planning capability enable physical backend issues to be analyzed and addressed at RTL stages before hand-off to the back-end groups for physical design implementation.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
