UT spin-off Qbaylogic intends to position its Clash language as the third language for programming FPGAs, in addition to and above VHDL and Verilog. Demcon’s involvement will enable the company to grow further and develop new products.
Last month, Enschede-based technology developer and manufacturer Demcon acquired a share in Qbaylogic. This spin-off from the University of Twente has created a new hardware description language for FPGAs, called Clash, as an alternative or supplement to the low-level languages VHDL and (System) Verilog. The company was taken on by Demcon’s incubator program in 2016, enabling it to support clients in the development of hardware. A successful project for Demcon confirmed the potential of Clash. Demcon’s financial involvement will enable Qbaylogic to grow further and develop new products, such as tools to accelerate working with the language.
