SystemCrafter exists to bring our customers the power of fourth-generation
electronic design synthesis, and so to make it easier, faster and less risky
to create advanced IC designs.
To fulfill this mission, we have created SystemCrafter SC. SystemC is the
industry standard for describing electronic systems using the hugely popular C++
language. SystemCrafter SC is a software tool that can automatically synthesize
SystemC descriptions to electronic hardware.
We have invested heavily in the engineering development of SystemCrafter SC.
We keep sales and marketing costs very low by selling it exclusively through our
website. This enables us to sell the tool at a price within range of all chip designers.
SystemCrafter was founded in 2002, and is based in Ipswich, England, about 70 miles
northeast of London.
