Here are Actel’s tools for FPGA development and physical implementation.
- Libero Integrated Design Environment (IDE)
Actel’s Libero IDE offers the latest and best-in-class tools from leading EDA vendors such as Magma Design Automation, Mentor Graphics, SynaptiCAD, and Synplicity. These tools, combined with custom developed tools from Actel, are integrated into a single FPGA development package. Actel truly offers a one-stop shopping solution to completely orchestrate the Libero design flow including a powerful design manager that guides users through the design process, keeps track of design files, and seamlessly manages file exchanges between the various tools.
Designer is Actel’s powerful physical implementation software tool suite. After completing design entry and functional verification using a front-end design tool, simply import the resulting netlist into Designer to complete the constraints management, place-and-route, timing and power analysis, and programming. Actel’s Designer software offers an easy-to-use and flexible solution for all Actel FPGA devices. It gives users the flexibility to plug and play industry-leading EDA tools from partners such as Synplicity, Mentor Graphics, Synopsys, Cadence, Magma Design Automation, and many other top names in the EDA field.
