Kyocera Document Solutions Selects Forte Design Systems SystemC-Based High-Level Synthesis
Dec 18 13
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.
Forte Design Systems, CircuitSutra Partner on Design Services, IP Co-Development
May 31 13
Forte Design Systems (C2 Design Automation, Inc.) and CircuitSutra Technologies Pvt Limited announced they will partner to provide design services throughout India to support the growing system-on-chip (SoC) market. As part of the agreement, Forte and CircuitSutra, an Electronics System Level (ESL) design intellectual property (IP) and services company, will co-develop ARM(R) AMBA(R) AXI(TM) and OCP-IP(TM) models compatible with Forte's Cynthesizer(TM) SystemC high-level synthesis (HLS). They will work together to deliver onsite consulting and training for Cynthesizer users in India.
LG Electronics Adopts Forte Design Systems's Cynthesizer SystemC High-Level Synthesis
May 15 13
Forte Design Systems announced that LG Electronics of Seoul, Korea, has adopted Cynthesizer(TM) SystemC high-level synthesis (HLS) for its next-generation digital television (DTV) design project. Cynthesizer has been deployed within LG's System Integrated Circuit (IC), DTV System on Chip (SoC) Development Department. LG selected Cynthesizer after evaluating a range of HLS software because of its notable productivity improvements, including faster turnaround time and better quality of results (QoR) over handwritten code. Also cited was Cynthesizer's ability to reduce power consumption in the design.
