Real Intent and Calypto Partner to Offer Best-in-Class Integrated Tool Flow for RTL Power Optimization and Sign-Off

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - Real Intent Inc., the leading provider of software products that accelerate Advanced Sign-Off Verification of electronic designs, and Calypto Design Systems, the leader in Sequential Analysis Technology, today announced that the companies are partnering to offer customers a seamless and interoperable flow between Real Intent's Meridian™ CDC and Ascent™ Lint products for Register Transfer Level (RTL) sign-off and Calypto's PowerPro® Platform for RTL power analysis and optimization. The integration combines the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry's leading tools for RTL power optimization and RTL sign-off into a flow that minimizes setup and delivers superior quality of results.

The integration between Real Intent and Calypto products streamlines the flow between Real Intent's RTL analysis and sign-off products and Calypto's PowerPro Platform for RTL power optimization. Users of both toolsets can launch Ascent Lint and Meridian CDC solutions from within PowerPro to lint and verify Clock Domain Crossing (CDC) on a design prior to optimization. Real Intent's products will generate the design environment files for PowerPro, making setup a one-time step for the combined tool flow. After power optimization, an Ascent Lint "diff" report shows incremental changes in the RTL with respect to the customer's rule set, while Meridian CDC ensures that the design's CDCs remain verified after the insertion of clock-gating logic.

"In conversations with joint customers, we have heard that our users regard tools from Real Intent and Calypto to represent the best solutions in their class, presenting a great opportunity to combine our tools into a powerful flow," said Prakash Narain, president and CEO of Real Intent, Inc. "Our toolsets are highly complementary, and together form a solution that easily beats broader product offerings from larger vendors. We see this as an opportunity for users to upgrade their RTL power optimization and sign-off tools while enjoying the benefits of an integrated solution."

"Partnering with Real Intent enables Calypto to offer our customers a powerful solution that produces high-quality, power-optimized RTL designs coupled with comprehensive RTL sign-off," stated Doug Aitelli, CEO of Calypto. "This is only the first step in the partnership between the two companies, and we will continue to work with Real Intent and our customers to provide leading edge solutions for RTL design and sign-off."
