Defacto will be showcasing at DAC this July, a significant step forward of its SoC Compiler 9.0 technology by making the Front-end SoC Integration process much easier with an extended support of design collaterals in particular for the Accellera IP-XACT standard.


Front-end SoC Integration has never been so easy with the Defacto’s SoC Compiler in terms of simplification and performance especially for complex SoCs during the assembly process when complex RTL and design collaterals need to be jointly and securely handled. SoC Compiler provides flexible APIs for the users regarding the formats to consider during the front-end integration process.


To benefit from the tool capabilities, IP-XACT is optional, but whenever this standard is needed, full support is provided for both IP-XACT 2009 and IP-XACT 2014 with a complete support of memory map and registers. The usage model has been extended for a large category of users: either IP-XACT experts or freshly new users who want to jump into this standard but expect to rely on the tool and set up the right IP-XACT based design methodology.


In addition to the flexibility of input and output format, the Defacto solution enables also a large set of APIs including object-oriented Python which makes the migration of internal scripts to SoC Compiler smooth and straightforward.

During this DAC several complementary advanced technologies will be presented in particular:

  • RTL connectivity insertion at the design level,
  • UPF management including UPF promotion, UPF demotion and UPF generation from Excel (XLS) templates,
  • RTL based clock reporting and SDC generation
  • Automatic test point exploration at RTL and much more.


We look forward to seeing you at the Defacto booth at DAC at the first floor of the San Francisco Moscone Center, booth #1543 !
