As we engage new partnering agreements, the ASC web site will be updated to reflect these changes, so please check back again. Be ready to climb aboard or step out of the way. Semiconductor technology is changing. Like the approaching train to the left, it isn't wise to remain dead center in its tracks. Opportunity exists now.
Who are we?
ASC creates and licenses innovative EDA tools for high-level design flows. Since our founding in 1990, SBIR funding has provided major support for the development of breakthrough
methodologies that equip our customers with innovative design tools, giving them a distinct competitive advantage for meeting
tomorrow's challenging requirements for interoperability, testability, soft
error recovery and lowest power.
Translation - ASC's popular VHDL2verilog™ and verilog2vhdl™
Translators are now licensed and supported by SynaptiCAD (go to http://www.synapticad.com).
IEEE Std 1149™ JTAG RTL Insertion - Preliminary support for
IEEE Std 1500 CTAG is also available.
CoolChip™ - High-level power optimizing
design flow using PACIFIC™ and macro block library
elements such as ALF or popular design libraries.
PACIFIC™ - ESL Power Optimizer
automatically explores the design space for best architecture
that meets timing constraint for dramatic reduction in switching
and leakage power. Removes the guesswork from low power
analysis and design.
CORAL™ - Characterizes RTL macromodels
for power for use in ESL flows. Examples of macro-block library
components are adder, multiplier, mux, etc. CORAL supports
IEEE Std. 1603 ALF and popular industry library formats.
is the open source ALF Compiler written in Perl. For
