Update: ARM to Offer Cycle-Accurate Virtual Prototyping for Complex SoCs Through an Asset Acquisition from Carbon Design Systems (October 20, 2015)
Uses Tool to Accelerate Deployment of SystemC-Based Virtual Platforms
ACTON, MASS. –– November 17, 2009 –– Carbon Design Systems™ announced today that AppliedMicro (NASDAQ: AMCC), a global leader in energyconscious computing and communications solutions, has selected Carbon’s system-level model generation software to reduce time to market for its next-generation system on chip (SoC) designs.
AppliedMicro engineers use Carbon Model Studio™ to accelerate the deployment of SystemC-based virtual platforms of their SoC designs for pre- and post-silicon software development, performance analysis and system-level validation.
“Virtual platforms containing Carbon Models have become part of our standard methodology for developing and refining our firmware,” affirms Vinay Ravuri, AppliedMicro’s vice president of Engineering Embedded Systems. “Carbon Model Studio enables us to quickly generate high-performance, system-level models for the majority of the SoC that is reused, reducing the time required to generate a virtual platform.”
“We’re pleased that AppliedMicro continues to derive value from Carbon Model Studio,” says Rick Lucier, chief executive officer of Carbon Design Systems. “Today’s announcement further validates that Carbon Model Studio has become the industrystandard method to generate high-performance, system-level models for legacy or third party intellectual property to accelerate virtual platform deployment.”
