Enschede, The Netherlands, October 12th, 2010 – Recore Systems, a fabless semiconductor company that develops advanced high-performance and energy efficient digital signal processing platform chips and licenses reconfigurable semiconductor IP, today announced that it has selected Synopsys’ Galaxy Implementation Platform for the implementation of reprogrammable, application-specific DSPs. These DSPs target ultra-low power stream processing applications such as digital Radio and TV, personal media players (PMPs) and navigation and infotainment systems.
Recore’s reconfigurable systems-on-chips offer a unique balance between flexibility, high performance, low power and low cost, and enable dynamic multiplexing of various applications. Reference implementation of hardware, pre-verification of hardware, and software building blocks reduce time-to-market and costs. Dynamic reconfiguration allows product differentiation, upgrading, bug-fixing and added functionality, all in software.
Recore has access to Synopsys’ comprehensive design implementation and IP solutions. The initial set of products includes Design Compiler Ultra synthesis, Power Compiler power optimization, DFTMAX compression, IC Compiler place and route technology, PrimeRail rail analysis, StarRC parasitic extraction, PrimeTime timing analysis, TetraMAX automatic test generation, Formality power-aware equivalence checking, and the DesignWare Library.
“Synopsys’ Galaxy Implementation Platform provides us with a valuable extension to our tooling capability,” said Paul Heysters, CEO of Recore Systems. “As we expand our digital signal processing IP portfolio and move into providing complete IC platforms, it is crucial that we can accomplish the whole ASIC design flow in-house. With Synopsys’ EDA software and DesignWare IP, we can provide our mutual customers with a higher quality of service.”
“Today’s market requires leading fabless companies to join forces with design partners who can help them accelerate the deployment of new designs and signal processing IPs implemented in the most advanced process technology nodes,” said Steve Smith, senior director of marketing, implementation platform at Synopsys. “Synopsys’ Galaxy Implementation Platform and DesignWare IP provide Recore with a tape-out proven path from RTL to working silicon. We will continue to work with them to help ensure that our mutual customers can meet their high- performance and ultra-low power implementation targets.”
