eXCite Tool Suite Provides Complete C-Based Platform Hardware Solution

LAKE FOREST, Calif.--()--Jan. 27, 2004--Y Explorations Inc., innovator of C-to-RTL synthesis methodologies, announces the expansion of the eXCite product line. With the release of eXCite Professional and eXCite Expert, YXI offers a complete hardware solution for C-Based platform design approaches.

YXI also now supports Verilog RTL output throughout the entire excite product line.

Complementing eXCite, which accepts virtually unrestricted ISO/ANSI C with channel input/output behavior and generates RTL output to be passed to logic synthesis, the new eXCite Professional provides features for solving challenging design requirements, including powerful pipelining capabilities, automatic bit-reduction, and delay and area optimization algorithms.

eXCite eXpert, available in Spring 2004, uses extensions to ANSI-C to allow detailed specification and control of hardware behavior for designers of bus-interfaces including cycle-accurate specification, bit-accurate specification, parallelism, communication, exception-handling and architectural constraints. Using eXCite eXpert, modeling and synthesizing high-performance bus interfaces and transducers is straightforward.

eXCite's complete Tool Suite provides a comprehensive solution to hardware-design for platform-based methodologies:

-- eXCite: for rapid synthesis of ISO/ANSI C behavior virtually unchanged from its original inception by the software developer.

-- eXCite professional: for increasing design throughput, especially with powerful pipelining capabilities.

-- eXCite expert: for transducer and/or bus interface synthesis providing efficient, high-performance communication between user blocks and/or CPU.
