Company Overview of Bluespec, Inc.

Company Overview

Bluespec, Inc. synthesizes, models, and test benches with legacy IP to employ emulation earlier for modeling, verification, and early software development. It offers Bluespec Compiler, which compiles a high-level model, transactor, test bench, and implements into Verilog RTL or SystemC; Bluespec Simulator that simulates Bluespec designs; Bluespec Development Workstation, which provides high-level GUI-based development environment for the design, analysis, and debug of Bluespec designs; Emulation App, an application that provides debug, instrumentation, and co-emulation for emulation of synthesizable models and legacy RTL with third-party FPGA boards/emulators; and Semu, a verification and hy...

Bluespec, Inc. Key Developments

Bluespec Desktop Emulation Now Supports Xilinx 7 Series FPGAs

Bluespec, Inc. announced that its affordable, easy-to-use desktop emulation software, Semu(TM), supports Xilinx 7 series All Programmable FPGAs and the Vivado(R) Design Suite. Support for Xilinx Kintex(R)-7 KC705 and Virtex(R)-7 VC707 Evaluation Kits is available now and support for additional boards and devices will follow. Semu Capabilities Enabled with Xilinx's Latest Silicon and Tools Delivers emulation speeds at simulation prices using the latest Xilinx 7 series FPGAs, which scale across low-cost and ultra high-end. Supports Xilinx Kintex-7 KC705 and Virtex-7 VC707 Evaluation Kits to enable high-speed verification of RTL designs up to 3.5 million gates. Support for larger capacity boards will follow. Works with the Xilinx Vivado Design Suite to provide consistent design-under-test (DUT) integration into FPGA boards. Individual ASIC and FPGA developers, including architects, modelers, designers and even verification engineers, have been limited primarily to simulation and, for the adventurous, home-grown FPGA-based solutions. For these users, Semu brings together the power of FPGAs and C to deliver Desktop Emulation, a high-speed verification and hybrid prototyping solution targeted to their capacity, budget and productivity needs. Key features: High-speed verification and hybrid prototyping solution for Verilog designs in an affordable, desktop form factor. Connect, Build & Go(TM) gets user up and running in less than a day. Build automation connects designs to the host and provides a C API for easy integration of SystemC/C/C++ models and test benches. Dynamic debugging enables iterations in minutes, instead of hours or days, by eliminating the requirement to re-instrument and re-synthesize. Semu provides dynamic visibility and hardware breakpoint capability against the register state in FPGA emulation at any time. KC705 and VC707 support 4.9M and 7.3M raw ASIC gates, respectively (the assumption is 1 Logic Cell = 15 ASIC Gates). Gate count capacities depend on design and utilization. Using a conservative assumption of gate count and utilization, the boards are capable of supporting 2.3M and 3.5M ASIC gates, respectively.
