Real Intent Inc. has introduced the latest version of its Ascent Lint product boasting additional improvements to accelerate electronic design sign-off. The Ascent products find design errors leading to improved quality of results and higher productivity for both design and verification engineers, stated the company.

The latest offering claims to deliver enhanced support for the SystemVerilog language, DO-254 policy files for compliance testing of complex electronic hardware in airborne systems, deeper rule coverage and easy configurability. Additional notable enhancements for Ascent Lint include: enhanced VHDL finite state machine (FSM) handling for deeper analysis; 17 VHDL and 12 Verilog lint rules that ensure design code quality and consistency for a wide range of potential issues; and lower noise in reporting of design issues.

Ascent Lint is tightly integrated with MathWorks' HDL Coder that automates the setup of files and commands for Ascent Lint. HDL Coder generates portable, synthesisable Verilog and VHDL code from MATLAB functions, and Simulink models and Stateflow charts for users of the MATLAB and Simulink products.

Many RTL engineers have been proponents of RTL linting since its inception to deliver high-quality functional designs on schedule. These engineers lint their designs constantly to uncover common and uncommon code issues to try to avoid spending expensive cycles in the simulation and synthesis stages. The Ascent Lint flow gives designers a setup-free, push-button process that provides interactive results and can be run at any point in the hierarchy, from chip level to complete blocks to leaf modules. Designers have confidence in the tool because the reporting of false failures is very unlikely, stated the company.

The release of Ascent Lint is available in March 2015. Pricing depends on product configuration.
