Synplicity’s Synplify Pro software is a powerful synthesis tool that allows you to maximize Xilinx® Spartan™-3 resources. If you are using the Xilinx ISE™ tool suite to identify the critical paths, you can easily perform timing closure with Synplify’s constraint entry capabilities.

Synplify also has many synthesis directives to aid in the timing closure of your design. Using the capabilities of the Synplify Pro tool, you can achieve the best performance for Spartan-3 devices.
