Synario Design Automation


rogrammable Logic FamilySynario from Synario Design Automation works with AMD's Universal Design Tools approach to provide you with a completely open design system. Together they work the way you think so you can design better products. The Universal Design Tools approach removes unnecessary constraints by giving you easy access to a wide range of part types, including programmable logic, gate arrays and standard cells. You get AMD's extensive library of advanced MACH® complex programmable logic devices (CPLDs) and CMOS PAL® devices - all in a common format that is easily integrated into the rest of your design. Synario, including MINC Incorporated's industry-leading fitter engine, offers the power of an integrated CAE design tool. (See our software brochure for a detailed explanation of our Universal Design Tools approach and our three design methods.)

A Tool that Works the Way You Do

Synario software offers advanced features and options that give you maximum flexibility and control in designing and simulating your programmable logic, including:

  • A choice of design entry methods (see accompanying Design Options chart).
  • Fully integrated functional and timing simulation with results back-annotated to your schematics.
  • Automatically netlists all schematics in your design, and compiles, optimizes and synthesizes all behavioral modules.
  • Straightforward simulation through identification of both the specific design target and the stimulus to be applied.
  • Familiar logic analyzer-like viewer to check results.
  • High-level synthesis and low-level silicon access for complete design control.
  • Built-in high-quality fitter engine from MINC.

Better Design Solutions with AMD PLDs

AMD's extensive library of advanced MACH CPLD and CMOS PAL devices provide a range of high-quality solutions. By working closely with Synario Design Automation and MINC, our libraries have been optimized to ensure that, whichever devices you choose, your designs will be expertly fitted and partitioned:

  • Predictable performance with accurate functional and timing simulations and guaranteed fixed-timing path delays.
  • Control over pin assignments, signal grouping, device selection and more.
