Synthagate – Overview

Design, in its broadest sense, is the enabler of the digital era – it’s a process that creates order out of chaos, that renders technology usable to business. Design means being good, not just looking good.”

Mike Davidson

Synthezza’s product Synthagate is the first true 4th generation High Level Synthesis (HLS) tool which shortens time-to-market by the factor at least of 3x practically for any applications. It performs full automatic synthesis of digital systems from behavior specification to description in HDL at the Register Transfer Level (RTL). The technology and concept is proven and implemented as a fast and powerful prototype which allows very fast to implement, check and estimate multiple   design versions, to find an optimized solution to the design problems, to produce automatically the design documentation and to simplify the digital system verification problems. High level synthesis, implemented in Synthagate, is oriented to the design of the Control and Data Path Intensive Systems with very complex Control units containing a lot of input and output variables.

Synthagate fast Logic Synthesis of FSM and combinational circuits reduces the circuit area of very complex Finite state machines and combinational circuits by as much as 50%, compared with results obtained by the best industrial tools. At the same time, Synthagate runs faster than other tools by a factor of 10 or more.
