Blue Pearl Software Advances FPGA RTL Signoff, Announces Release 6.2 with Enhanced Grey Cell Methodology

Blue Pearl Software, Inc., the provider of next generation EDA software that increases designer productivity and design quality, announced that it is shipping Release 6.2 of its Blue Pearl Software Suite, for Windows and Linux operating systems. The new version includes enhancements that improve and further accelerates FPGA design verification, including one of its biggest design challenges – chip-level clock domain crossing analysis.

“We are very pleased to see that the Blue Pearl Software Suite integrates well with Xilinx’s latest solutions like Vivado™ Design Suite and Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoC," said Sanjay Gehani, Senior Manager Alliance Program at Xilinx. "This addresses the growing verification concerns of IP connectivity and rule compliance checking for complex FPGAs.”

“Our collaboration with Xilinx resulted in an optimized flow for the FPGA synthesis and place & route implementation flow,” said Ellis Smith, Chairman and CEO of Blue Pearl. “With our enhanced Grey Cell methodology we are now enabling an industry-first chip-level clock-domain crossing (CDC) solution at the RTL level.”

What’s New in 6.2

Enhancements to Blue Pearl Software Suite™ Version 6.2 include:

  • Enhanced analysis using a Grey Cell methodology
  • Better runtime due to enhanced connectivity and smaller database
  • Enhanced multi-cycle path analysis

Previous announcements included multi-language (SystemVerilog, VHDL, and Verilog) support, mode-based path analysis, TCL tool control, a longest path viewer and an improved FPGA synthesis flow.

To Learn More

Blue Pearl Software Suite will be demonstrated at embedded world 2013, Hall 4-615, NürnbergMesse, Nuremberg, Germany.
