​Product Definition Life Cycle

Sondrel works with clients from project concept through to silicon bring-up. We work to processes that produce predictable and reliable outcomes.

We follow a proven process to turn the concept into an agreed market requirement document, architectural specifications and detailed engineering specifications that enable the product to be developed, based on a clear cost and schedule.

Development Phase Methodology

Sondrel uses an advanced in-house methodology to compile any design in a consistent manner. This software tool allows engineers to describe designs in a logical, hierarchical and flexible manner to direct EDA tools and internal flows. The file lists that the tool generates are stored in the IEEE IP-Exact format, an industry-wide standard for providing not only hardware information, but also for software and protocol standardisation. 

The Sondrel methodology can quickly generate design views for the purposes of simulation, synthesis and emulation without the need to manually recreate them, saving time in the design process and reducing the risk of human error. It automates many other inbuilt tool flows, including RTL compilation, linting and CDC, MBIST insertion and formal equivalency.

By ensuring the coherency of data across a design as work is done, and automating tasks to avoid errors that would otherwise be produced by manual updating, we are able to build a SoC faster and more efficiently.
