A UNIQUE SOFTWARE

The only software on the IT market that can convert and manipulate models oriented to virtual simulation

What is the HIF SUITE?

HIFSUITE is a software designed to handle the growing complexities of integrated embedded systems, both digital and analog.
This unique software allows you to convert and manipulate design models oriented to the effectiveness and efficiency of virtual simulations.

Superior Benchmark

We provide Benchmarks superior to traditional solutions both in terms of precision and speed and in terms of optimization and effectiveness of simulations.

Time reduction

Resetting the generation time of a high-level abstraction model

Reusing IP Cores

Reuse of ‘IP Cores’ already written in VHDL and Verilog languages in Virtual Platform contexts

Simplifying models

Easy alignment between low-level and high-abstraction models

Modelling of digital and analogue modules

Better management of the complexities of integrated embedded systems

Building new design flows

Generazione di nuovi flussi di progettazione automatici grazie all’utilizzo di API che permettono di modellare i modelli

TOOLS FOR ABSTRACTION AND OPTIMIZATION

HIFSUITE is a software whose development started in 2006 with the collaboration of the Department of Computer Science R&D of the University of Verona. The software has been updated and tested thousands of times before it can be marketed and its implementation has taken years and years of continuous development. The developers who worked on the project wanted to create something unique on the market that could solve the most important problems for designers and embedded developers.

  • Developed, tested and updated since 2006
  • Contains more than 260k lines of code
  • Developed in collaboration with the University of Verona
  • We provide testing and tangible evidence of its benefits in terms of time and cost

Hifsuite

A tool designed to handle the growing complexities of integrated embedded systems, both digital and analog

The only software on the market that can manipulate and convert design models oriented to virtual simulation.
The software processes heterogeneous abstraction languages such as Verilog and VHDL, transforming them into an easily manipulated intermediate format (e.g. for fault simulations) and returning a high-level language such as System C or C++. This allows to zero the times to obtain an abstraction model able to be more performing and manipulable.

HIFTOOLS

A set of tools able to manipulate and translate IP cores to perform analysis, simulations, checks and get a more performing language.

VIRTUAL PLATFORM

A software designed for the conversion of IP cores (analog and digital) in an equivalent module that can be integrated into a virtual platform

SMART SYSTEM

Integration of heterogeneous components into an equivalent component that can be used in a Virtual Platform

TECHNICAL SUPPORT

Developers who created the software help by providing software tools for IP reuse in SystemC, C++ and within Virtual Platform, avoiding conversion errors.

Simplifies and optimizes conversion processes for virtual simulation-oriented models
