“Daktronics leverages the easy to use platform Active-HDL provides for FPGA design and simulation to improve our engineers’ design productivity. With easy to access language assistance, top level block diagram and state machine tools, we are able to document our designs and train new engineers quickly. The testbench tools allow us to design unit tests to create reliable, feature-rich platforms regardless of which FPGA vendor is selected. The block diagram tool provides an excellent way to connect the IP blocks to make a meaningful, useful, graphical top level project. The state machine tool is perfect creating state machines that are understandable and maintainable. Daktronics really values the prompt customer service provided by Aldec and they are always willing to consider feature requests. This relationship over the years Daktronics has owned Active-HDL tools has been productive for designs large and small. Aldec’s quick response to new versions of the vendor specific tools and devices enable Daktronics to use the newest devices and cores as they are released.”
