PLEASANTON, Calif.-- June 17, 2008 -- CPU Technology, Inc. (CPU Tech) announced today that BAE Ground Systems has awarded the company a $47 Million delivery order for production kits containing an Acalis® MultiCore System-on-a-Chip (SoC) for use in the Bradley Combat System. The Acalis family of Field Programmable MultiCore SoCs consists of highly integrated, low power multicore devices that can be configured to meet the requirements for a particular system. The Acalis CPU420 contains numerous processors, memories, controllers, interfaces, and several critical functions.
“The integration and low power of the Acalis CPU420 enabled us to significantly reduce the number of boards while adding enhanced functionality,” said Ed King, CPU Tech’s CEO. “Its capabilities were key to developing a modern system for a vital military platform.”
The system design was accomplished in less than half the industry norm using industry-leading development tools available with Acalis. With high fidelity, cycle-accurate models of the Acalis CPU420 and the other system components, the design team simulated the entire kit and its surrounding systems on SystemLab PS™, a real-time platform simulator. The system-wide visibility enabled the kit to be debugged quickly and efficiently while completing the testing and system integration virtually.
The deliveries will be made over a nineteen month period beginning in June of 2008.
For more information on the Acalis family, please contact Gail Walters or Richard Kessinger at (925) 224-9920 or (703) 251-2565.
