EScala design platform now opens floating point architecture to new applications
San Jose Calif. – October 30, 2012 – Esencia Technologies, a technology leader in ASIC/FPGA DSP design, today announced the availability of the EScalaPlus scalable Floating Point Architecture (FPA), opening effective FPA to new applications.
EScalaPlus supports up to 32 concurrent IEEE-754 floating point operations (FLOPs) per cycle. To keep area requirements low, EScalaPlus offers the ability to optimize for operations strictly required by the application software and automatically removes unused hardware resources.
“We are proud to announce IEEE Floating Point support for EScala. Many applications that particularly benefit from EScala’ scalability are targeting floating point arithmetic.” said Ravi Satrawada, CEO and President of Esencia Technologies. “Its ease of use and high performance are a perfect match for traditional floating point applications, such as Scientific Computing, Big Data Mining and High Frequency Trading (HFT), but the cost-effectiveness and scale also open up innovative uses of floating point arithmetic for wireless networking, voice and sound processing and other growth market applications.”
The EScala design platform comes with a full software development environment (SDK) for C and C++. The complete toolchain also offers built-in support for multi-core configurations. The integrated debugger and simulator enhance time to market and software reliability and ensure a very low cost of ownership for EScala licensees.
The EScala design platform generates synthesizable RTL code and related scripts to easily integrate it into an ASIC SoCs or FPGA. It supports standard bus protocols interfaces like AMBA AHB/AXI. EScala is supported by a company that has a long track record of successful ASIC tape-outs and understands the importance of customer service.
Esencia will exhibit with industry leaders at the ARM TechCon 2012 October 31 – November 1, 2012 at Santa Clara Convention Center, Booth #419.
