Due to its placement at the junction between design creation and physical implementation, FPGA synthesis can provide significant leverage in meeting quality goals and reducing project cost and time. For example, cross-probing tools offer debug capabilities that span the flow; other capabilities facilitate concurrent FPGA/PCB design. This paper explains how an FPGA synthesis tool, by integrating with advanced design and verification solutions, can help designers reach project goals more efficiently.
