FPGA Vendor Independent IP
Part of an effective FPGA-neutral methodology is not just selecting the right tool flow but ensuring the ability to target 3rd party IP to any FPGA vendor. Mentor Graphics has developed both a technology and an eco-system of partners to provide a vendor-independent IP solution.
Precise-IP is a Precision Synthesis tool that generates vendor-independent HDL for commonly used IP building blocks. With an ever-increasing library, the easy-to-use wizard guides users to create widely used IP cores such as memories and arithmetic functions for easy re-use. These cores are optimized to provide the best quality of results across FPGA families.
Precise-IP Partner Program
Mentor Graphics has assembled, and continues to grow, an ecosystem of 3rd party vendors offering FPGA vendor independent cores. As part of the Precise-IP Partner Program, supported IP is validated with Precision Synthesis to ensure high quality of results. View the catalog of supported cores.
