The SDK kit provides the tools necessary to develop high-performance, scalable and reusable DSP cores for high-volume SOC applications.
SDK allows customers to convert quickly and easily C, C++ and MATLAB® files into BOPS ManArray assembly code for their DSP applications.
SDK 2.0 offers an integrated development environment including a System Simulator; Instruction Set Simulator (ISS); Compiler for MATLAB and Vector Library; GNU-C compiler, assembler, linker and loader; VLIW packer; Register Allocator; DSP libraries and BOPS ManArray technical information and coding examples.
What Users Say
"We found BOPS' SDK to be a very powerful tool for creating optimized code and for optimizing parallel instructions and deriving cycle counts. This made our process of OpenGL geometry engine development much quicker than expected," stated, Greg Passmore, CTO of 3-D Pipeline (San Diego, CA).
"Design engineers are under extreme time-to-market pressures. Software development and verification typically drives the critical path, so a fast and efficient toolset that allows significant hardware/software co-development is essential," remarked, Richard Tobias, CTO, White Eagle Systems Technology, Inc. (San Jose, CA)
ADD!!! "The BOPS SDK provides this, allowing customers to reach optimized solutions 35% faster."
Price and Availability
SDK 2.0 is immediately available now for a free evaluation period for PC and UNIX operating systems. Orders can be placed over the Internet through the BOPS website-www.bops.com
Price depends on the options selected.
BOPS provides DSP intellectual property in the form of software ("soft" or synthesizable) macros. BOPS offers a wide range of "soft" cores to choose from. All are instruction set compatible and use the same hardware and software development tools.
