Creator of C++ class library for simulation and synthesis.


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 has eliminated the need to manually rewrite an algorithm using a language such as Verilog or VHDL prior to synthesis. Cynlib is 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.
