Kyocera Document Solutions Selects Forte Design Systems SystemC-Based High-Level Synthesis

Kyocera Document Solutions has selected SystemC-based high-level synthesis software (HLS) from Forte Design Systems(TM) and will deploy it for the design of image processing integrated circuits (ICs) used in multifunction printers. Cynthesizer(TM) 5, Forte's SystemC-based HLS software for high-level design, verification and SystemC intellectual property (IP) development, was chosen for better quality of results (QoR), higher performance and faster execution time, replacing a competitive synthesis tool. With Cynthesizer, Kyocera moves from ANSI-C to SystemC-based HLS software, a decision made because SystemC extends C++ in a standardized way to include hardware-specific capabilities. ANSI-C does not readily support hardware description languages and, Kyocera noted, SystemC is a good choice for control modeling.
