Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Tensilica (Apr 24, 2013)
SANTA CLARA, Calif. - March 24, 2010 - Tensilica, Inc. today announced that IntegrIT DSP Design House, a leading supplier of DSP (digital signal processing) software solutions, has joined Tensilica's Xtensions partner network to provide vital software components, including the high-performance Nature DSP Signal+ library, for the ConnX Baseband Engine, HiFi Audio DSPs and the ConnX D2 communications DSP. The IntegrIT Nature DSP Signal+ is a collection of signal processing functions that assist the implementation of typical DSP algorithms. All functions are optimized for, and utilize, the full data bus bandwidth and computing power of each of the ConnX DSPs. The IntegrIT Nature DSP Signal+ library features over 30 common math and signal functions and is designed to be useful in practical real-time DSP applications.
"Tensilica has developed a series of very compelling DSP architectures from the small footprint ConnX D2 to the flagship ConnX Baseband Engine," stated Dmitry Paroshin, managing partner, IntegrIT. "ConnX with the Nature DSP Signal+ library compares very favorably to competing DSP architectures. We joined Tensilica's Xtensions partner network as we see that they are well-positioned to becoming a dominant DSP supplier in wireless communications."
"IntegrIT has clearly demonstrated their Tensilica knowledge and expertise in bringing the Nature DSP Signal+ library to market," stated Chris Jones, Tensilica's director of strategic alliances. "The high performance achieved by IntegrIT with the math and signal functions demonstrates the architectural efficiency of the ConnX DSPs."
About the Nature DSP Signal+ Library:
IntegrIT Nature DSP Signal+ is a collection of signal processing functions needed for implementation of typical digital signal processing functions. All functions are manually optimized for Tensilica's ConnX DSPs. This library, on the ConnX D2 DSP, outperforms TI's C55XX DSPLIB by 45-65 percent for FFTs and provides up to 4x acceleration for vector mathematics. Another important feature is the availability of bit exact library for x86 PC, which makes development and simulation of complex DSP algorithms simpler and more straight forward. This library is available today for ConnX D2 in binaries and in source code written on fully portable C-language from both Tensilica and IntegrIT. It will be available in the third quarter for HiFi Audio DSPs and the ConnX Baseband Engine. A datasheet is available at http://integrit.ru/download/IntegrIT_NatureDSP_Signal+.pdf
