Overview

Catapult Physical Aware

Taking Catapult to the next level by partnering with advanced RTL Synthesis technologies such as Synopsys DC-NXT, plus Siemens EDA’s Oasys and Precision FPGA Synthesis. Catapult delivers improved QoR for Performance, Power and Area with latest process technologies.

Key Features

A Closer Connection To Physical RTL Synthesis

As geometries decrease, estimation and interpolation of RTL operator synthesis for advanced FPGAs or ASIC multiVT effects becomes harder. To build optimal RTL, HLS must neither over-pipeline, nor under-pipeline the output RTL in order to tune the Performance, Power and Area results downstream.

ON THE FLY CHARACTERIZATION

Getting An Exact Answer For Every Operator

On The Fly Characterization uses downstream physically aware synthesis tools to build a complete area/performance tradeoff of every operator needed in your design. Advanced caching across multiple users and designs reduces iterative runtime, while providing superior results for modern geometries. MultiVT option choices round out the optimization trade-offs.

MultiVT OPTIMIZATION FLOW

Trading Power, Performance & Area

MultiVT libraries deliver a wide range of power and performance. High performance gate level implementations come at a cost of power and area. Designers need a mechanism to drive VT usage to achieve the optimum tradeoff for their specific needs. Catapult delivers a multiVT approach for On-The-Fly Characterization with modern process technologies.
