C-based Design and Synthesis Accelerates the Hardware Implementation of Military Radio
Military Communications Specialist Tadiran Selects Celoxica C-Synthesis Technology To Implement Complex Communications Signal Processing Algorithms
Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK - June 27, 2005 - Celoxica Ltd., today announced that Tadiran Communication Ltd., a leading provider of military communications technology, has adopted the Celoxica DK Design Suite of C-based design and synthesis tools to accelerate its next generation of product design. The extensive evaluation focused on Military Tactical Radios and Systems in the HF, VHF, and UHF bands. The DK Design Suite will be deployed to implement very complex signal processing and communications algorithms in FPGA hardware.
The type of design work we undertake is becoming more complex and more time critical, and we needed a design tool that would enable us to achieve increased flexibility, faster development and easier maintenance, said Danny Koenig, modems director for Tadiran Communications Ltd. We believe that the new generation of high-level language design tools give us these capabilities and consider the DK Design Suite to be the most proven and best available solution.
The algorithms and levels of design complexity tackled by Tadiran just dont lend themselves to an implementation route where translation into HDLs is mandatory, said Sandeep Ram, vice president of European sales for Celoxica. Our C-based design and synthesis technology offers compelling benefits to designers of very complex systems where speed and intuitive design are key.
