General Description: Is there support for Xabel in the Alliance software?
Xilinx ABEL, a.k.a. DS-371, is a stand-alone ABEL compiler that can target Xilinx FPGAs and CPLDs. Primarily used in conjunction with a 3rd party schematic capture tools, like Viewlogic or Orcad, this tool has been supported by Xilinx through our Alliance program. An agreement was mutually decided between Xilinx and Data I/O that the ABEL compiler is to be best supported by the manufacturer. Therefore, Xilinx has discontinued shipping and order entry for all variations of the DS-371-xxy.
Xilinx continues to OEM and ship ABEL as part of the Foundation Series software on the PC.
