San Jose, CA - September 26, 2000 - Xilinx, Inc. announced its newest release of the Alliance Series and Foundation Series Integrated Synthesis Environment (ISE) software, version 3.2i.
According to the company, by addressing the challenges of ultra-high density logic design, the 3.2i release improves the Xilinx design flow by accelerating place and route runtimes and supporting incremental and team design methodologies.
The version 3.2i software provides guided place and route,integrated together with synthesis tools from Synopsys, Inc., Exemplar, and Synplicity. The company said that this design capability enables customers using Xilinx software to change their design in the final stages of the design process, without disturbing the layout and timing of unchanged portions of the design.
The 3.2i floorplanning capabilities provide integration
with register transfer level (RTL) level floorplanners, and Xilinx modular design. Hierarchical floorplanning enables synthesis tools to communicate layout and timing directives to the implementation tools, supporting more accurate and aggressive timing estimates during optimization, the company said.
The 3.2i release of Xilinx development systems provides
architecture-specific device support for all Xilinx product families. The software is compatible for popular PC and workstation platforms and operating systems such as Windows95/98/2000 and Windows NT; Chinese, Korean, and
Japanese Windows; Solaris and HP-UX. The new software version pricing starts at $695. The 3.2i software is delivered as part of the Xilinx Alliance Series and Foundation Series design environment.
