LONDON EDA startup Sigasi has provided Mac OS X support for its Sigasi HDT, intelligent development environment (IDE) for VHDL. Sigasi HDT is built on the Eclipse platform and contains an ultra-fast VHDL parser and compiler. The tool is currently available in a public beta program.
“From the start we have supported the traditional EDA platforms, Windows and Linux”, said Hendrik Eeckhaut, Sigasi's CTO. “However, we found that a significant number of our beta users wanted Mac support. With this release, those designers can now use our IDE to develop VHDL on their favorite platform.”
Sigasi HDT for Mac OS X is immediately available in the ongoing beta program. To participate in the program, users should visit the company's website. “Macs have traditionally been overlooked by EDA vendors”, said Philippe Faes, Sigasi's CEO. “As such, Sigasi HDT is one of the first commercial EDA tools with Mac OS X support.”
In May Sigasi (Ghent, Belgium,) said it was looking for partners for its public beta program for Sigasi HDT.
