High-Level Synthesis Software From Forte Design Systems Adopted by LG
Forte's Cynthesizer Selected for Next-Generation DTV Design Project
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/13 -- Forte Design
Systems(TM) (www.ForteDS.com), the #1 provider of software to enable
design at a higher level of abstraction, today announced that LG
Electronics (www.lg.com) of Seoul, Korea, has adopted Cynthesizer(TM)
SystemC high-level synthesis (HLS) for its next-generation digital
television (DTV) design project.
Cynthesizer has been deployed within LG's System Integrated Circuit
(IC), DTV System on Chip (SoC) Development Department. LG selected
Cynthesizer after evaluating a range of HLS software because of its
notable productivity improvements, including faster turnaround time
and better quality of results (QoR) over handwritten code. Also cited
was Cynthesizer's ability to reduce power consumption in the design.
"While our department only recently began deploying Forte's
Cynthesizer, we're seeing immediate productivity improvements and
reduced development time," remarks Dr. Jin-Gyeong Kim, research
fellow, DTV SoC Development Department, SIC Lab at LG Electronics.
"We're confident we selected the right vendor for our needs."
"LG has distinguished itself as a leading provider of consumer
electronics products and appliances," adds Brett Cline, Forte's vice
president of marketing and sales. "We're pleased to be working
alongside some of the most innovative designers working in this field
Cynthesizer is the first high-level design solution that closes the
gap between electronic system level (ESL) design and register
transfer level (RTL)-to-GDSII flows. It provides a complete design
environment that includes behavioral synthesis and verification as
well as FPGA prototyping and design management. It generates
production-quality RTL code using a high-level SystemC-transaction
level modeling (TLM) design description as input. Cynthesizer
provides an open and customizable environment based on standard
languages and application programming interfaces (APIs).
