Catapult HLS for RTL Teams - What You Need to Know

Estimated Watching Time: 37 minutes


Catapult® HLS is a key competitive technology in several emerging markets like machine learning and vision. In this webinar, we cover both an introduction to Catapult HLS and what’s new. In particular, how Catapult is expanding to cover a more complete ecosystem around C-based design and how this solution from Mentor provides benefits to users beyond just synthesis. If you want to know what is new in HLS and might be concerned that your competitors are moving ahead with this technology and you are not, this is your opportunity to connect with the Catapult team.

What you will learn:

  • How to adopt HLS and be successful

  • HLS tool flow and verification methodology overview

  • SystemC vs C++ and why C++ is winning the productivity battle

  • Code examples for HLS

Who should attend:

  • Engineering Directors who need faster design cycles and lower verification costs than RTL design provides

  • RTL Design and verification managers who need to improve team productivity

  • RTL Designers concerned that RTL might no longer be enough to compete
