SystemC analysis EDA start-up Actis Design LLC recently unveiled the latest version of its AccurateC static C++ code analyser for SystemC.

Used to analyse SystemC code prior to compilation, simulation or synthesis, AccurateC 2.6 offers an enhanced C++ application programming interface (API), giving designers the means to perform customised analysis of SystemC source code, Actis said. The tool extends the existing API to allow access to internal design data in terms of SystemC constructs, such as modules, processes, variables, interfaces and signals, according to the company.

AccurateC's Rule Wizard function has been improved to ease automatic rule generation, Actis said, and new rules have been added to support a SystemC methodology and simulation environment, driven by customer input. These rules include rules for array out of bounds checks, virtual function usage and improved variable usage checks, Actis said. Additional rules are available also for the Forte Design Systems Cynthesizer rule set, according to the company.

"Enhancements to AccurateC are all user-driven improvements based on inputs from our customers in Japan and Europe," says Joan Bartlett, president of Actis Design. "They greatly improve the usability and capabilities of AccurateC for real-world SystemC development and offer Actis a key competitive advantage."

AccurateC is designed to combine C++ syntax checking with SystemC semantics checking to identify coding problems prior to simulation and synthesis. The tool is shipping and supports Sun Microsystems and Linux operating systems, Actis said. Pricing ranges from Rs.4.19 lakh ($9,000) to Rs.13.97 lakh ($30,000), depending on configuration, for a one-year technology subscription licence.
