Gabe Moretti’s post-DAC newsletter hit the net last week including Paul’s retrospective on how DAC was for Oasys (well, it was certainly right here, right now). It is now online on Gabe’s website too.
Our first-ever floor demos showing why Chip Synthesis is a fundamental shift in how synthesis is applied to the design and implementation of ICs were well attended all three days and the feedback positive. The demo highlights the benefits of RealTime Designer, the first design tool for physical RTL synthesis of 100-million gate designs. It produces better results in a fraction of the time needed by traditional logic synthesis products through a unique RTL placement approach that eliminates unending design closure iterations between synthesis and layout.
