The UltraFast High-Level Productivity Design Methodology provides a set of best practices including:

• Using parallel development flows for the valuable IP which differentiates your products in the marketplace and the platform used to integrate your IP with the rest of the ecosystem.

• Extensive use of a C-based IP development flow to provide simulations that are orders of magnitude faster than RTL simulations, as well as accurately timed and optimized RTL.

• Use of existing pre-verified platform, block, and component-level IP to quickly build your system.

• Use of scripts to highly automate the flow from accurate design validation through to programmed FPGA.
