The folks at Synopsys say that the FPGA synthesis solutions from its Synplicity Business Group, Synplify Pro and Synplify Premier, support the recently announced 40 nm Stratix IV FPGAs from Altera.
Synopsys' Synplicity synthesis solutions are claimed to deliver exceptional value to customers through efficient mapping technology, tuned specifically to capitalize on the performance features of Stratix IV devices, and timing-driven synthesis technology that produces area optimizations resulting in lower-power consumption in Stratix IV-based designs.
Altera's Stratix IV FPGAs leverage an advanced 40-nm technology and the company's proven transceiver and memory interface technology to provide excellent system bandwidth with a high level of signal integrity. Stratix IV FPGAs, when coupled with HardCopy IV ASICs, deliver the benefits of FPGAs with a seamless transition to ASIC implementation.
Software support for Stratix IV devices is available now. Contact Synopsys (www.synopsys.com) for more details.
