C Tool Targets FPGA Design

The CoDeveloper Tool Suite is designed to ease a software developer's job of creating an FPGA-based solution. Impulse Accelerated Technologies' collection of C-based libraries, tools, and compilers takes a hardware system definition written in standard C and implements it on an FPGA in conjunction with a soft processor. It supports chips and design tools from Altera and Xilinx, including their NIOS and MicroBlaze soft processor cores. Scripts and tutorials minimize a designer's need to work with hardware definition languages. The suite also generates a simulation software system that can be profiled using the Impulse C Application Monitor. Pricing for the suite starts with a yearly subscription of $1995 for one platform.
