Pomona, New York, April 29 1996
Electronic design automation (EDA) provider CAST, Inc. is now shipping new, expanded versions of its VHDL simulation and synthesis model libraries, and has redesigned its Web site to provide more information, easier navigation, and even some fun for VHDL designers.
CAST’s Standard Component VHDL Library is aimed at designers of FPGAs and systems. The latest version, SCVL 3.0, now comprises two packages:
- SCVL-Logic includes simulation models of 2,500 popular ECL and TTL parts.
- SCVL-Memory includes simulation models of 3,000 popular memory devices.
SCVL models are precompiled for a variety of popular VHDL simulators on PC and Unix platforms, US pricing for SCVL-Logic is $995/PC and $1,995/Unix, and for SCVL-Memory $1,495/PC and $2,995/Unix.
For more advanced devices, CAST’s V-Custom Series provides affordable VHDL models of processors, complex functions, and specialized devices. Featuring in-stock models like Intel’s Pentium and Pentium Pro processors, memories from Samsung, NEC, and Ramtron, and a variety of coprocessors, network controllers, and timers, the V-Custom inventory grows every month.
Rapid growth of its model libraries led CAST to abandon printed catalogs in favor of on-line listings at its redesigned Web site, http://www.cast-inc.com. There designers can get descriptions of CAST and its latest VHDL offerings, and can join the private CAST Club for some VHDL fun. CAST Club members can download a free VHDL model every month, and have access to VHDL-themed crossword puzzles and other games. An on-line member roster and forums for exchanging VHDL stories and tips support the growing CAST Club community.
CAST models are available worldwide; check the Web for local distributors. CAST, Inc. is located at 24 White Birch Drive, Pomona, NY 10970. Phone: 914/354-4945, fax: 914/354-0325, e-mail: email@example.com, Web URL: http://www.cast-inc.com.
