Description

CynApps became Forte, which was purchased by Cadence.

CynApps was founded in 1998, to develop tools to support the use of higher levels of abstraction for hardware design. By enabling C++ to be used as a hardware description language through the development of the Cynlib(R) class library, CynApps eliminated the need to manually rewrite an algorithm using a language such as Verilog or VHDL prior to synthesis. Cynlib was available under an open source license.

The company now offers a complete tool-suite that supports successive elaboration of an abstract C/C++ description into a hardware description, to be synthesized automatically.
