Synopsys Announces Virtualizer Development Kit for Freescale S32V200 MCU Family for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Development

Synopsys Inc. announced the availability of its Virtualizer Development Kit (VDK) for Freescale's S32V200 family of microcontrollers (MCUs). The VDK uses the S32V234 virtual prototype as an embedded target for early and more efficient software development, integration and test of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The VDK was developed through the Center of Excellence collaboration between Freescale and Synopsys, which leverages joint engineering teams to develop and test virtual prototypes and VDKs optimized for Freescale automotive products. Advanced driver assistance systems enable functions such as adaptive cruise control, lane- keeping systems, autonomous braking, park assist and autonomous driving in the future. These functions require development, integration and testing of algorithms and software that interpret all sensor data and implement the behavior of a skilled driver. The VDK for S32V200 includes software development tools and integrates third-party tools to support automotive flows for software development, virtual Hardware-in-the-Loop-based integration and fault testing for ISO 26262. The VDK for S32V200 can also be used with other Synopsys VDKs to simulate a network of electronic control units (ECUs). This complete virtual development environment can easily be deployed in a regression environment, resulting in higher software quality, better product reliability and reduced development costs. The VDK for Freescale S32V200 is available now from Synopsys.

Synopsys and Sensory, Inc. Announce Availability of Sensory's TrulyHandsfree

Synopsys, Inc. and Sensory, Inc. announced availability of an optimized port of Sensory's TrulyHandsfree voice control software for the Synopsys DesignWare ARC EM DSP Processor Family. In typical 28-nm process technologies, the ARC EM5D processor consumes less than one microwatt of power executing TrulyHandsfree low-power sound detection software, and less than 40 microwatts operating in speech recognition mode. The combination of Sensory's highly optimized voice control technology running on power-efficient and DSP-enhanced ARC EM processor cores enables designers to rapidly integrate a complete, ultra-low energy hardware-software solution for voice/speech processing into their 'always-on' devices. Sensory's TrulyHandsfree voice control technology is extremely robust to noise and designed to prevent false triggers during normal room noise and conversations. The solution offers multiple phrase technology that recognizes, analyzes and responds to dozens of keywords. It consistently recognizes phrases even when embedded in sentences and surrounded by noise, operating reliably in close to 0 dB signal-to-noise ratio real-world environments. Traditional approaches to keyword spotting have failed in high noise and frequently false-fire, but TrulyHandsfree can deliver more than 95% accuracy without false fires even in high noise and speech. Ultra-low power consumption in detection and recognition modes extends battery life for always-on Internet-of-Things (IoT) and wearable devices. Both fixed triggers with user enrollment and user-defined triggers provide better performance and allow for personalization. The DesignWare ARC EM DSP Family of processors, which includes the EM5D and EM7D processors, implements a scalable pipeline that offers an optimal balance of performance, power consumption and size for a range of control and DSP applications. The processors include a unified, single-cycle 32 x 32 MUL/MAC unit with 32-bit/64-bit accumulators. To deliver enhanced performance for filtering, fast Fourier transform (FFT) and other signal processing algorithms, the EM5D and EM7D feature fractional support, rounding and non-rounding instructions, as well as divide, square root and fixed-point math functions. Vector and SIMD support provides greater processor efficiency by enabling multiple data values to be processed in a single operation, providing the DSP performance required for ultra-low power, always-on devices that process audio, voice and sensor data. These processors deliver excellent performance efficiency of up to 1.77 DMIPS/MHz while consuming as little as 3.5 microwatts/MHz dynamic power in a typical 28-nm HPM process technology. Like all ARC processors, the EM5D and EM7D are highly configurable so that each instance can be tailored to achieve the optimum balance of DSP and RISC performance for the target application as well as power and area efficiency. ARC Processor EXtensions (APEX) technology offers designers the ability to create user-defined instructions, enabling the integration of custom hardware accelerators that improve application-specific performance while reducing power consumption and the amount of memory required.

Synopsys Inc. Launches embARC Open Software Platform Accelerates Development of ARC-Based Embedded Systems for the Internet of Things

Synopsys Inc. launched the embARC Open Software Platform to help accelerate the development of DesignWare® ARC® processor-based embedded systems. The new embARC platform gives ARC software developers online access to a comprehensive suite of free and open-source software that eases the development of code for the IoT and other embedded applications. Device drivers, operating systems and middleware ported to and optimized for ARC processors are available for download without cost from the website. The website also provides access to software development tools and documentation as well as user forums to facilitate the sharing of information and expertise among the ARC-based design community. Drivers, Operating Systems and Middleware: Pre-ported drivers for the GPIO, UART, SPI, I2C and other peripherals as well as leading real-time operating systems (RTOS), including FreeRTOS and Contiki OS, give developers a choice of industry-standard software environments for their ARC-based systems. FreeRTOS is a scalable, compact and reliable operating system that is popular among embedded software developers. The Contiki OS is specifically designed for networked, memory-constrained systems such as low-power, wireless IoT applications. The embARC platform provides a choice of middleware components and a robust starting point for the development of IoT-related devices. The components available for use with FreeRTOS include the TCP/IP stack lwIP, file system fatfs, and MQTT and libcoap IoT protocols. The Contiki OS includes a middleware package with an integrated IoT protocol stack including MQTT, a publish/subscribe messaging protocol for lightweight machine-to-machine communications, and the CoAP application layer protocol for resource-constrained IoT applications.
