Oasys RealTime Designer has once again made it onto Gary Smith’s list of what to see at DAC. As he says in his commentary:
Oasys continues to stick to their guns. Now that we have a SVP, and the resulting RTL Sign- Off point, more and more of the design will be handed off to Logic Synthesis with a Don’t Touch command. That means that Design Compiler’s superior optimization capabilities become less valuable than a synthesizer that can handle large designs. That doesn’t mean Design Compiler isn’t needed earlier in the design process, however today earlier often translates to the work being done by the IP vendor. This has given Oasys an opening that few suspected and they are taking advantage of it.
