Synplicity Updates Confirma Platform

Synplicity Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNP) announced new product capabilities for its Confirma(tm) ASIC/ASSP Verification Platform. Synplicity continually updates the Confirma Platform with tighter integration and new product capabilities for a seamless transition and implementation of ASIC designs into the Confirma at-speed verification platform. The Confirma Platform takes FPGA-based prototyping to the next level by transforming it into a tightly integrated, comprehensive at-speed verification solution.

Confirma is a complete prototyping solution combining best-in-class hardware and software tools in a tightly integrated, easy-to-use environment helping customers overcome their toughest ASIC verification challenges. In addition to the Certify tool, the Confirma Platform includes Synplicity’s Identify® Pro software with TotalRecall(tm) technology providing full visibility into the design under test. Confirma also includes the company’s HAPS(tm) High-performance ASIC Prototyping System(tm); the most flexible prototyping boards on the market today as used by leading electronics organizations such as CSR.

New Features

  • Updated board files, shipped with Certify, that provide specific details about the HAPS board topology thus ensuring a smooth implementation of the design and the best possible performance
  • Additional board trace delays to further optimize the system behavior of the design under test implemented, and running on HAPS
  • Automatic insertion of pin multiplexing, between multiple FPGAs on one board and also between multiple HAPS boards, with minimal impact on overall system performance
