Sigasi Integrates Aldec Simulator to Accelerate Feedback Cycle

Share Article

Sigasi, a VHDL integrated development environment (IDE) provider, today announces the launch of a new version of its VHDL entry and inspection tool, Sigasi Pro 2.4. In response to user requests, this new version features integration with Riviera-PRO that enables users to automatically start the Aldec compiler with each file save. As a result, designers can see continuous, up-to date feedback from Riviera-PRO.

Correcting errors earlier in the process is, of course, a cost-saving effort in the long run. Sigasi’s type time compiler notifies the designer of certain common errors as the code is typed, however this type-time error checker does not catch all errors. The new integration with Riviera-PRO delivers a new line of defence against bugs and flags all violations of the VHDL language in the code – enabling users to continue to leverage VHDL while delivering access to alternative debugging features.

“Those errors would never make it to tape-out,” says Sigasi’s CEO Philippe Faes. “But they would take up precious time from design engineers and verification engineers.” The integration shortens the feedback cycle between man and machine (or between engineer and compiler). As a result, illegal RTL code will never survive longer than a few minutes, and will only take seconds to correct.

Interested hardware designers are invited to visit Sigasi’s website for a demonstration video:
