Bluespec, Inc. manufactures silicon-proven electronic design automation synthesis toolsets for the application specific integrated circuits and field programmable gate arrays. Its products include Bluespec Compiler, which compiles a high-level model, transactor, test bench, or implementation into Verilog RTL or SystemC; Bluespec Simulator that simulates Bluespec designs with high-speed cycle-accuracy, bluespec development workstation, provides a high-level graphic user interface (GUI) based development environment for the design, analysis, and debug of Bluespec designs; AzureIP Foundation Library that streamlines design with a IP library of design building blocks, interfaces, and types; SCE-MI Infrastructure and Generator, which provides bring up of HW/SW co-emulation with a flexible and portable SCE-MI implementation; and Desktop Emulation that accelerates simulation by orders of magnitude with pre-built kits for running software-based test benches against unit designs running on low-cost FPGA boards. The company also offers Pipelined Architecture Composers library, a parameterized and plug-and-play building block library for specifying, modeling, and synthesizing algorithm and datapath designs. Bluespec serves system, silicon, IP, and design services companies.
The company was founded in 2003 and is based in Waltham, Massachusetts.
