Introducing SyntHESer, Aldec’s proprietary high-speed synthesizer for HES emulation and prototyping

DAC 2019, Las Vegas, NV – June 3, 2019 – Aldec, Inc., a pioneer in mixed HDL language simulation and hardware-assisted verification for FPGA and ASIC designs, has developed a high-speed HDL synthesizer called SyntHESer as a part of the company’s HES-DVM emulation tool. Accordingly, users of HES-DVM can be spared from investing money in, and time integrating, a third-party synthesizer.

As for performance, in a recent in-house bench test SyntHESer performed 10x faster than a leading standalone synthesis tool when handling identical blocks of HDL for a circa 45-million-gate Deep Learning Accelerator (NVDLA) design. Multiple synthesis jobs can be run concurrently on HES-DVM, and for the NVDLA design SyntHESer took less than 20 minutes to synthesize the HDL.

“We’re delighted to unveil SyntHESer at this year’s DAC, which is in our home state,” says Zibi Zalewski, General Manager of Aldec’s Hardware Division. “It’s also our 35th Anniversary and it’s very much part of Aldec’s DNA to develop and bring to market essential and core EDA functionality. For example, a year after Aldec established in 1984, we introduced our first official product. It was an MS-DOS-based gate-level simulator called the Standard Universal Simulator for Improved Engineering (SUSIE), and was the foundation for what today is our Active-HDL™ product. Now in our fourth decade its great to still be introducing solutions that improve the productivity of engineers.”

Languages supported by SyntHESer are VHDL, Verilog and SystemVerilog.

SyntHESer debuts as an integral part of HES-DVM, Aldec’s fully automated and scalable hybrid verification environment for SoC and ASIC designs, allowing for much faster design setups for emulation and prototyping modes.

Aldec’s HES-DVM and SyntHESer will be on show at DAC 2019 on booth #623 at DAC 2019.
