Saivision Joins MIPS Technologies MIPS Alliance Program
FREMONT, Calif.--Oct. 15, 2001--Saivision Consulting Group, Inc. announced today that it has joined the MIPS Alliance Program (MAP) offered by MIPS Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq:MIPS, MIPSB). The MAP program consists of independent hardware vendors (IHVs) and independent software vendors (ISVs) who provide complete solutions around MIPS-based(TM) processors. MAP membership gives Saivision access to MIPS-based development platforms and documentation for MIPS-based cores, allowing Saivision to provide design automation tools to companies designing highly-integrated System-On-Chip(s) (SOCs) with high-performance MIPS(R) processors. Saivision's SaiLAhead(TM) co-simulation/verification platform enables functional validation of SOC ASIC's "hardwired" and "programmable logic" functions along with the development/debug of application code, simultaneously.
Saivision's SaiLAhead platform is designed for SOC designs that include an embedded processor core such as the MIPS32(TM) 4Kc(TM) and a programmable logic block as part of the SOC. The SaiLAhead platform accelerates the speed of simulation of the SOC design, wherein logic functions in the programmable logic portion of the SOC can be simulated and verified along with the rest of the "fixed" logic functions in the SOC, thereby validating overall SOC functionality. The SaiLAhead platform offers full visibility to the signals at the interface to the logic functions implemented in the programmable portion of the SOC. In addition, users can develop their application code with the help of a full-featured debugger which is part of the SaiLAhead platform.
"Together, MIPS Technologies' embedded processor cores and Saivision's co-simulation/verification platform products enable a whole new class of quick time-to-market solutions in the high-performance embedded applications arena," said Mike Duggirala, president of Saivision.
"We welcome Saivision and its SaiLAhead platform to the MIPS Alliance Program," said Kevin Meyer, vice-president of marketing, MIPS Technologies. "We recognize the importance of high-quality co-verification tools in facilitating the completion and introduction of next-generation MIPS-based chips."
