Hardent’s program enables companies to adopt the latest Xilinx devices and the Vivado design tool, making use of the UltraFast design methodology, converting constraints files from UCF to XDC and using Tcl scripting as a unified scripting language.
Hardent has announced today the introduction of a new program for accelerated migration from Xilinx’s ISE to the Vivado® Design Suite. Hardent’s new program enables companies to deploy leading-edge technology from Xilinx with a minimal learning curve and an easy guided transition that is supported through training and by experienced consultants.
As companies consider designing with Xilinx’s 7 series, Zynq® or the recently announced UltraScaleTM devices, Xilinx recommends that customers migrate to the Vivado Design Suite. Vivado facilitates the implementation of the UltraFast Design Methodology and the use of Tcl as a unified scripting language, introduces a plug-and-play style of IP integration, and consolidates several, previously separate, tools into a single integrated development environment. Advanced requirements in today’s increasingly complex electronic systems are stretching the boundaries of density, performance and power. Tools such as the ISE Design Suite will no longer be able to resolve the interconnect bottleneck and promote the productivity required. In order to properly transition from the familiar ISE design tool to Xilinx’s Vivado Design Suite, system architects and design engineers are required to go through a learning curve. In an effort to avoid a lengthy transition process, Hardent has developed an accelerated implementation program.
Hardent’s new accelerated migration program will assist clients in shifting smoothly to Xilinx’s Vivado Design Suite, including converting constraints files from UCF to XDC, migrating IP to 7-Series or UltraScale devices, porting projects from ISE to Vivado, re-scripting and building automations using Vivado Tcl scripts or implementing advanced flows such as Hierarchical design, IP Integrator (IPI) and Revision control (SVN). Hardent is in a unique position to both train and provide professional services. To ensure a fast transition of knowledge, Hardent offers many complementary courses such as: Vivado Design Suite for ISE Project Navigator Users, Vivado Design Suite Advanced XDC and STA for ISE Users and Essential Tcl Scripting for the Vivado Design Suite. Hardent’s experts can tailor training courses and services to the specific needs of a customer. Hardent’s experienced consultants can advise companies on how to incorporate Vivado methodologies and features into new and existing projects.
Being a certified member of the Xilinx Alliance Program, Hardent engineers have early access to the latest Xilinx tools and features and thus they have the necessary expertise to provide companies with an accelerated path to reduce time-to-market development.
