June 20, 2012 – Enschede - Recore Systems brings fixed functionality DSP accelerator IP in a new DSP IP core web store www.optiumIP.com. The store kicks off with ‘OptiumIP to go’ in a range of Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) IP cores and Viterbi IP cores, and openly communicates prices. The store helps engineers to speed up their design cycle: turnkey DSP accelerator IP cores, transparent pricing, and fast turnaround on customizations.
In an industry where every cent matters, easy IP reuse is key to control IC development costs. IC designers find product information on web sites of IP providers, yet pricing information is rarely out in the open. OptiumIP.com provides full transparency in pricing on ‘OptiumIP to go’, a range of ready to use, fixed-functionality, technology independent DSP accelerator IP for both FPGAs and ASICs.
To facilitate integration in a design, OptiumIP comes with an AMBA AHB-Lite bridge. Before purchase, potential users can download an evaluation package with a top level interface definition and a functional simulation model with accompanying guide for the DSP IP core.
OptiumIP.com kicks off with a range of standard and mixed radix Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) IP cores and Viterbi IP cores, and plans to expand with DSP accelerator IP that is high on the designer’s wish list. For designers who need a variation on ‘OptiumIP to go’, the web store offers ‘Tuned IP’. In addition, designers can request custom, on-demand DSP accelerator IP based on their own requirements and reference code.
With the launch of the web store, Recore Systems expands its IP portfolio of reconfigurable DSP IP cores with fixed-functionality DSP accelerator IP. “Based on our proven reconfigurable DSP technology and tooling, we can create new IP cores quickly,” according to Paul Heysters, CEO of Recore Systems. He continues: “We believe that engineers are ready to start online shopping for IP, just like they do for any other item. OptiumIP.com makes it possible to select IP and integrate it in a design within a few days.”
