EDATechForce Partners With NEC To Market High-Level Synthesis In North America


EDATechForce, LLC announced today they have partnered with NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) to bring the award-winning C and SystemC synthesis VLSI design suite, “CyberWorkBench” (CWB), into the North American market.

NEC and EDATechForce will showcase CWB at this year’s DesignCon in Santa Clara, California, February 1-2 where they will demonstrate the latest release that includes full SoC system level design capabilities as well as a full range of complex designs fully synthesized in C.

CWB is a complete VLSI development suite comprised of a series of advanced LSI design tools using C or SystemC as input language that form an integrated design platform for ASICs, FPGAs and ASSPs. NEC group has been developing CWB for over 2 decades, and many Japanese companies have already benefited from this design suite.

“EDATechForce has a proven track record of providing valuable sales and technical support for leading-edge solutions for EDA companies. It is important for NEC to have highly competent and proactive representatives. Working with EDATechForce’s dedicated sales and technical support teams allow us to reach this goal, and we are confident that this will accelerate our business in North America" said Kazutoshi Wakabayashi, Senior Principal Researcher, Embedded Systems Solution Division, NEC. “We are very impressed with how quickly EDATechForce has absorbed the needs of our market and brought potential customers to our attention. I think this can be attributed to their unique business model of bringing synergistic technologies together for the benefit of our mutual customers.”

“I’m very pleased that NEC has chosen EDATechForce to support the sales promotion of CyberWorkBench,” said Carl DeSalvo, President and CEO of EDATechForce. “CWB delivers what system architects desire, including the smallest gate counts, highest data throughputs, and a suite of verification tools to ensure functional design integrity, all with significant power reduction. One of CWB’s most important capabilities is automatic design space exploration, which enables design teams to realize these benefits and meet or exceed their ever shrinking design cycles.”

In order to fully benefit from high-level synthesis state-of-the-art tools need to support ANSI-C to directly synthesize any complex software application developed by Software engineers, as well as SystemC to benefit from the growing SystemC ecosystem. CyberWorkBench not only supports these two input languages, but also legacy RTL code, which is important since most designs are incrementally built and designers need to re-use their RTL IPs.
