Blue Pearl Software to Unveil HDL Creator at the Design Automation Conference

New Smart Editor, HDL Creator Provides Real-Time Verification as You Code 

SANTA CLARA, California – June 11, 2018 – Blue Pearl Software, Inc., the leading provider of design automation software for ASIC, FPGA and IP RTL verification, today announced that it will showcase its all new HDL Creator™ smart-editor at the 55th Design Automation Conference.

The HDL Creator is ideal for developers coding both RTL and test benches who are seeking productivity, predictability and code quality for complex FPGAs, ASICs, and IP Designs. HDL Creator provides real-time syntax and style code checking inside an intuitive, easy-to-use full featured editor. Unlike standard editors, HDL Creator provides advanced real-time file analysis to find and fix complex issues as you code, such as compilation dependencies and missing dependencies. In addition, HDL Creator provides advanced design views to help understand and debug as you code.

HDL Creator is a full-featured source code editor that provides all the normal features you would expect from a modern code editor such as autocomplete and error fix suggestions. In addition, HDL Creator provides over 2000 real time syntax and customer specific coding standards checks to streamline code development, saving time and effort all while averting common coding mistakes that would result in downstream design iterations.

Available as both a stand-alone editor as well as integrated inside Blue Pearl’s Visual Verification Suite 2018.2, HDL Creator is ideal for all development teams regardless of their downstream verification environments. “We are quickly becoming the verification solution of choice for military, aerospace, medical, and other safety critical design companies around the world. Our solutions enable designers to verify as they code” said Ellis Smith, Blue Pearl Software, Chairman and CEO. “With HDL Creator, verification starts as you type your first line of code. This ensures higher quality code while increasing productivity. Stop by our booth at DAC and get demo or better yet, sign up for a deep dive private presentation.”


HDL Creator is available to early access customers today and will be widely available as part of the Visual Verification Suite 2018.2 later this summer. All existing Visual Verification Suite Analyze RTL customers on maintenance at the time of shipment will receive a free copy HDL Creator with the release.

The Visual Verification Suite 2018.2 will also feature a major upgrade to its Clock Domain Crossing (CDC) analysis. The upgrade features simultaneous clock and reset domain analysis. This advanced analysis has been developed to find and fix potential metastability issues that arise in system that have asynchronous reset de-assertion across clock domains.  This new functionality will also be showcased at Design Automation Conference.
