It is indeed very Visual Studio-like. Sigasi HDT is based on Eclipse and aims to deliver the same experience to hardware designers as Java developers have.

For now, Sigasi only supports VHDL. However, in the future there are plans on supporting Verilog and SystemVerilog and perhaps other languages as well.

Is this a Visual Studio-like tool, or more than that? Has anybody out there used this IDE?

VHDL only? How about Verilog, and SystemVerilog? If Sigasi has no plans other than to support VHDL designers, I would not bet a cent on their future.

Sigasi, in their belief that they have added "intelligence" to their Integrated Development Environment are pioneering yet another acronym; yet they may also be trying a new approach to provide tools for IC design and a cost-effective Internet-based distribution model. I wonder if larger EDA companies are pursuing similar paths.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
