FPGA Software Achieves Rapid Timing Closure

product pic

The LeonardoSpectrum 2000 FPGA design software incorporates TimeCloser technology that claims to be the industry's first synthesis tool to enable timing optimization based on accurate, physical data. A unique second-pass optimization algorithm closely integrates synthesis and place-and-route data.
The application also includes Xilinx's floorplanner interface and new bi-directional place-and-route interfaces for Actel, Altera and Xilinx programmable devices. The new interfaces are designed to enable the software to read physical place-and-route data. Running on Windows 95/98/NT/2000, Solaris and HP-UX , platforms, pricing starts at $17,500.
