LG banks on HLS software from Forte Design Systems
Cynthesizer is a high-level design solution that closes the gap between electronic system level (ESL) design and register transfer level (RTL)-to-GDSII flows. It claims to provide a complete design environment that includes behavioral synthesis and verification as well as FPGA prototyping and design management. It generates production-quality RTL code using a high-level SystemC-transaction level modeling (TLM) design description as input. Cynthesizer provides an open and customizable environment based on standard languages and application programming interfaces (APIs).
According to LG, it selected the Cynthesizer because of its notable productivity improvements, including faster turnaround time and better quality of results (QoR) over handwritten code.
LG also noted that they believe Cynthesizer has the ability to reduce power consumption in designs.
"While our department only recently began deploying Forte's Cynthesizer, we're seeing immediate productivity improvements and reduced development time," commented Jin-Gyeong Kim, research fellow, DTV SoC development department, SIC Lab at LG Electronics.
