Mentor Graphics, a provider of electronic hardware and software design solutions, has acquired its majority-owned subsidiary, Calypto Design Systems Inc. The company will become part of Mentor Graphics as a standalone business unit and integrate its capabilities into Mentor’s current software offerings.
Calypto is the developer of Catapult, an HLS (high-level synthesis) tool that can automatically generate RTL verification from C/C++ and SystemC description.
The organization also has PowerPro, a full suite of RTL power optimization tools. With this suite of products, users can reduce dynamic and leakage power in the logic, memory and embedded processor section of a system on chip (SoC).
“Calypto has been on a great path with its superior technology,” says Badru Agarwala, general manager of the Calypto business unit at Mentor Graphics. “The Catapult LP flow integrates power optimization technology in HLS and provides the foundation for what the industry is seeking – a fully integrated flow from C to power-optimized RTL. Calypto has been working with leading customers to solve the challenges of FinFET-based design, and its newest power product will be a breakthrough in design-for-low power. The combination of Calypto’s amazing engineering resources and Mentor’s worldwide field organization and market leadership will accelerate the adoption and make sure that we accelerate the momentum.”
