Milpitas, Calif. – March 3, 2014 – Sonics, Inc., the world’s foremost supplier of on-chip network (NoC) technologies and services, and Duolog Technologies, a leading provider of System-on-Chip (SoC) integration products and solutions, announced their partnership to support ease of adoption of IP-XACT based design flows to better support their common customers. IP-XACT (IEEE-1685), published by Accellera, describes the meta-data of IP designs and flows and the interconnection of IP interfaces in a standard specification.
As today’s SoC designs incorporate more IP components, Sonics and Duolog’s integrated solutions will address the time-to-market pressures and provide a means for engineers to easily build and update their designs. The combined solutions provide accelerated and continuous SoC integration, offering significant improvements in both productivity and quality of results.
“Sonics is excited to work with Duolog Technologies to better serve our customers,” said Grant Pierce, CEO at Sonics. “Duolog shares our commitment to delivering solutions that significantly impact SoC quality and time-to-market.” The two companies have common customers who depend on the ability to move between the two companies design environments easily. Typically, companies transfer the data between the environments using IP-XACT.
Because IP-XACT has been an evolving standard, this partnership seeks to simplify the design flow process and ensure that the extensions used by Sonics and Duolog are consistently interpreted to make the user experience coherent and error free.
“Duolog’s and Sonics’ solutions are a natural fit,” said Norman Walsh, COO of Duolog. “Our partnership will accelerate the design flow and IP-XACT model adoption, ensuring ongoing compatibility of design tools and go-to-market capabilities.”
