Fully integrated SP&R system
With an integrated SP&R system supported by a browser-like GUI, Stylus offers an intuitive, familiar design environment for ASIC and FPGA designers. At the heart of Stylus is Spacetime-optimized synthesis coupled with timing-driven 3D place-and-route. Stylus enables designers to realize all of the benefits of 3D by automatically and transparently mapping standard RTL directly into Spacetime. Stylus accepts standard VHDL/Verilog/System Verilog inputs as well as SDC constraints. In another industry first, Stylus’ integrated GUI links logical, physical, and schematic project views, giving developers the ability to analyze all aspects of a design together. Several productivity-enhancing features have been implemented, including advanced floor-planning, static timing, and power analysis. In addition, Stylus provides on-chip debug capabilities by supporting the integration of debug logic and direct probing of select nodes in a user circuit. Stylus offers seamless integration of soft IP cores from Tabula’s leading IP partners, and supports design libraries for industry-standard logic simulators.
"Today marks an important milestone for the programmable logic industry," said Alain Bismuth, Tabula Vice President of Marketing. "With Stylus, we have delivered an industrial-strength 3D synthesis and timing driven place-and-route system that makes the breakthrough price/performance of Spacetime and of the ABAX 3PLD devices available to all FPGA and ASIC designers, with an entirely familiar design flow. Unlike other decade-old development systems, Stylus is designed from the ground up, using today’s most advanced synthesis and place-and-route algorithms, is fully integrated, and is accessible in the way all modern design tools should be – through the Cloud."
Cloud Computing – the way modern software is delivered
Tabula created Stylus in a cloud-computing environment to ensure that designers always have access to the latest software without either the overhead associated with IT management or the expense of compute servers. Access of the cloud through the Web not only increases productivity but also enhances customers’ experience by enabling real-time, on-site-like, technical support. Meticulously developed with security and privacy in mind, Tabula Compute Cloud keeps each customer’s data separate and secure via best-in-class processes and technologies.
