To research and develop Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools based on VHDL, an analyzer is necessary to translate the source code into an intermediate representation from which back-end tools can be developed. Whether the analyzer is purchased or built, it is secondary to the research, diverting cost and effort from the intended development. The existence of a standard intermediate representation and a freely available VHDL analyzer that translates source code to that representation allows resources to be focused on the productivity enhancing, back-end tools. The SAVANT project provides VHDL researchers with the tools and compatibility to achieve a significant enhancement in the overall effectiveness of basic CAD-in-VHDL research
