Santa Clara, CA--January 21, 1997--Cadence Design System Inc.'s Alta Group (Sunnyvale, CA) unveiled Visual Architect, an application-specific, high-level behavioral synthesis solution.
Visual Architect (VA) is the only synthesis offering to provide both system and ASIC designers with a complete and open design flow from high-level algorithm design through optimized silicon.
Visual Architect is the architectural-level entry point of a system-to-silicon design flow for implementing ASICs and FPGAs. Users can leverage VA's integration into Cadence's logical, physical, and datapath design solutions, or easily interface it to other commercial or proprietary tools. It provides designers with ease of use, full control over ASIC design tradeoffs, and tight integration with EnWave and EnVision, Alta's application-specific solutions aimed at wireless and multimedia applications, respectively.
Available now on Sun and Hewlett-Packard Unix machines, Visual Architect is priced at $70,000.
