Building Blocks Help Homebrew Tools

Two software products are Concorde, a fully customizable, super-fast RTL synthesis engine combining state-of-the-art algorithms and data structure with very high gate-count capacity and rapid compile time, and NOM, a common Netlist Object Model that provides a unified front-end for Verilog, VHDL and EDIF structural designs. Both products can be integrated into end-user or internally-developed EDA and CAD tools. Concorde is well-suited for several applications including high-level input to FPGA tools, quick estimation of ASIC gate count, or as an RTL front-end for formal verification; it accepts industry-standard synthesizable subsets of Verilog and VHDL. NOM is an extensible, language-independent, in-memory data structure with an Application Program Interface that helps provide a unified view of any netlist description while hiding language specific details.
