Tabula Announces Availability of Stylus Compiler Version 2.8.1


Software release features a series of high-performance soft IP and reference designs

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Tabula, Inc., announced today the availability of version 2.8.1 of its Stylus® compiler, supporting its ABAX®2 P-Series of devices. Stylus 2.8.1 includes MoSys' GigaChip Interface (GCI) and Tamba Networks' soft IP cores, as well as a high-performance search engine reference design developed in collaboration with Algo-Logic Systems. These and the many other capabilities included in this release are designed to facilitate next-generation 100G networking equipment development and to further improve user experience.

The new capabilities and design kits introduced in the Stylus 2.8.1 release include:

--  MoSys' GCI soft IP core: Designed to interface with MoSys' Bandwidth Engine devices, the 90%-efficient GigaChip interface protocol enables high-bandwidth, high-efficiency chip-to-chip communications necessary for high-performance switching, routing, monitoring, and content processing functions. In addition, the core includes an automatic error recovery mechanism in the event of a channel CRC error to guarantee end-to-end data integrity and system reliability.
--  Tamba Networks' universal Interlaken soft IP core: Tamba Networks offers the industry's lowest latency and smallest sized solution for the Interlaken communication protocol. The Interlaken IP core is also highly configurable to match system requirements including bandwidth of up to 600 Gbps and a lane count of up to 32. The initial configurations supported in this release are 12 × 10G and 8 × 7.5G Interlaken and Interlaken Look-Aside. The core is fully compliant to the Interlaken Protocol Definition revision 1.2.
--  Titan IC regular expression processor (RxP) soft IP core: The RxP regular expression processor core is scalable for 10-40 Gb/s throughput. The core supports a large rule database of up to 10,000 rules using ABAX2P1 on-chip caches or 1M rules using optional, external DDR3 memory. It achieves this combination of high throughput and database depth by handling multiple characters and multiple regular expressions in parallel, including cross packet inspection.  The core operates in an in-line or look-aside, accelerator role.
--  NetASAP search reference design: Created in collaboration with Algo-Logic Systems, the NetASAP reference design provides L2/L3 routing capability for four 10 Gbps Ethernet ports.  Routing logic is implemented using the Algo-Logic ATSE engine with 4K entries and 320-bit keys.  This reference design supports two levels of priority queuing per Ethernet port with configurable queue depth of up to 1MB per port using on-chip memory only.
--  Northwest Logic's configurable PCIe Gen 2 soft IP core
--  Up to 15% runtime reduction
--  Added capabilities:  In excess of 200 new features and improvements to usability, including enhanced timing debug capabilities, that contribute to Tabula's objective to make high-performance design easy.

More about Stylus compiler
Stylus compiler provides a synthesis, placement, and routing flow familiar to FPGA designers, using industry-standard RTL inputs and design constraints. The suite automatically exploits the unique advantages of Tabula's 3D Spacetime architecture; unleashing the ABAX(2) 3PLDs' unmatched capabilities and achieving unparalleled performance with surprising ease. The software integrates cutting-edge timing-closure technologies, including sequential timing, router-aware placement, and automatic co-optimization of performance and density.  In addition, to help users take full advantage of the ABAX2P1 device's unmatched embedded RAM capacity and throughput, Stylus compiler transparently infers multi-port memories (up to 24 ports) from RTL, automatically packing small user memories and folding wide user memories into the device's on-chip RAM blocks.

Availability:
Stylus version 2.8.1 is available today.
