Sigasi Studio XPRT means less time spent reviewing and validating HDL code

Sigasi Studio XPRT

Sigasi, provider of an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for hardware designers, showcased Sigasi Studio XPRT last June at Design Automation Conference 2018 in San Francisco. As part of Sigasi Studio 4.0 it is the IDE of choice for SystemVerilog, Verilog and VHDL.

Design and verification engineers are always looking for tools to streamline their workflow and boost productivity. Sigasi Studio XPRT provides an answer with its integrated visual feedback and graphical navigation features with a flexible integrated documentation feature within the trusted productivity platform Sigasi Studio 4.0. Now, all SystemVerilog and VHDL users will have access to features with block diagrams, finite state machine and hierarchy views. Having these views will help users validate code faster, get insights within their project and make reuse of legacy code much easier.

As with all Sigasi products, Studio XPRT works with unfinished code and delivers with immediate (‘type-time’) feedback.

“Our continued conversations with design and verification engineers show a strong demand for new visual tools for SystemVerilog and VHDL. This has led to a new product in the Sigasi Studio line,” says Bob Seghers, General Manager of Sigasi.  “We have used our experience and the industry best practices to create the next-generation version of Sigasi Studio and develop the new Sigasi Studio XPRT tool.”

Sigasi Studio 4.0

Sigasi, through its flagship Sigasi Studio product, has redefined digital hardware design and improved engineering productivity for 10 years. With Sigasi Studio, it provides hardware design and verification engineers with interfaces to the most popular EDA design tools with automated compilation and simulation. Today, the introduction of Sigasi Studio 4.0 gives these engineers new code editing, checking and browsing features to lower the time spent reviewing and validating their projects.

Hendrik Eeckhaut, CTO, Sigasi, adds: “The improvements in Sigasi Studio 4.0 are timely as customers wrestle with crucial compliance standards like ISO 26262 and DO-254. Customers are reporting significant drops in the time spent reviewing and validating their projects as they comply with standards like these.”

Sigasi Studio dramatically improves the FPGA and ASIC designer’s productivity by providing support to write, inspect and modify digital circuit designs intuitively.

As you type, Sigasi Studio marks syntax errors so they can be immediately fixed. By understanding the HDL languages Sigasi Studio can support advanced features such as intelligent auto-completes and code refactoring, making Verilog, VHDL and SystemVerilog design entry easier and more efficient. Sigasi Studio has become the essential next-generation Integrated Development Environment for hardware designers.

10 years Sigasi

Due to the success of Sigasi Studio, Sigasi even stopped offering design services to third parties a few years ago, meaning all engineering efforts are focused on improving and developing our core product, Sigasi Studio.

Currently, the company is celebrating its 10th anniversary. What started in 2008 with a dream of 2 PhD students, has now grown into a scale-up company “for engineers, by engineers”.

In the meantime Sigasi Studio is used worldwide by industry leaders in the fields of healthcare, consumer electronics, industrial automation, telecom, aerospace and defense. Sales of Sigasi Studio is growing fast in Europe and in the US. New markets are ready to start up in Asia.

Sigasi also has various partnerships with FPGA and EDA companies including Intel, Xilinx and Aldec.

For the moment, Sigasi is working on the next technologies and platforms. This means they need new talent, more specifically R&D software engineers for our team in Ghent. Maybe something for you?
