Flexras Technologies Announces Breakthrough Automatic Partitioning Tool That Boosts FPGA-Based Prototyping Performance by 10X

Demos at Booth #2810, June 4-6, Moscone Center, San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/29/12 -- Design Automation Conference (DAC) -- Flexras Technologies, an EDA company specializing in partitioning for FPGA-based prototyping, today announced Wasga Compiler, a software tool that boosts multi-FPGA design performance. Wasga Compiler is unique and is the first timing-driven, multi-FPGA partitioning software for ASIC and SoC prototyping. It typically delivers a 10X clock frequency increase, runs blazingly fast, handles multi-billion ASIC gates equivalents designs, and maps them to any Altera or Xilinx board, whether it's off-the-shelf or custom.

Wasga Compiler automatically partitions large designs onto multiple FPGAs while addressing chip resources, connectivity, and the clock frequency constraints required for running software applications in near real time. It maximizes prototyping system performance and solves hardware/software validation bottlenecks of next generation SoCs to help meet the time-to-market challenges.

"Multi-FPGA platforms are heavily used for ASIC and SoC rapid prototyping. Existing tools notoriously fail the complex partitioning challenge. Verification engineers still rely on a cumbersome manual partitioning methodology," remarked Hayder Mrabet, Flexras' CEO. "Wasga Compiler complements FPGA-based SoC prototyping with high performance automatic partitioning. Engineers benefit from high clock frequencies, fast execution time, and unlimited design capacity. Wasga Compiler just makes the multi-FPGA designer's life easier."

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
