The folks at Blue Pearl Software
, a provider of EDA software that accelerates RTL signoff for FPGA designs, have opened a Japan office in Tokyo, and appointed Katsuhiko Sakano
as its Director of Sales.“By opening this office and adding an experienced executive like Sakano to our management team, we continue to support our growing list of Japanese FPGA designers,”
said Ellis Smith, Blue Pearl’s CEO. “We are dedicated to providing FPGA designers in Japan with the best design tools for their innovative embedded systems and quality electronic products,”
noted Sakano. “The Blue Pearl Software Suite runs on Windows, is easy to use, and is priced right. It also accelerates RTL signoff, supports SystemVerilog, and works with FPGA design flows supported by Xilinx and Synopsys.”
Sakano is an experienced EDA sales executive, who previously worked with Real Intent, Inc. and Springsoft K. K. (now part of Synopsys, Inc.), as well as Cadence Design Systems and leading semiconductor and FPGA companies.Japan Contact Information for Blue Pearl Software

The Blue Pearl Software Suite works with the Xilinx Vivado Design Suite running on Windows platforms. It includes linting, CDC analysis and automatic SDC generation. Its generated SDCs drive the efficiency of the synthesis and place and route phases of FPGA design implementation, and reduce iterations and overall design time. Its Visual Verification Environment makes it easy to use.
The company’s collaboration with Synopsys offers an optimized flow that works with Synopsys’ Synplify Pro FPGA synthesis software. Verilog, VHDL and SystemVerilog designers can automatically generate an exhaustive set of constraints that address false and multi-cycle paths that are compatible with Synopsys’ synthesis flow.
