Addition of DSP Core Cells Complements High-Level Synthesis Tool
Milpitas, CA., USA, October 21, 2003, AccelChip, the industry’s only provider of automated flows from algorithms to silicon, today announced the acquisition of Bit-tru, Inc., a San Diego based company. Bit-tru’s comprehensive libraries of high performance digital signal processing (DSP) models will be integrated into the AccelChip DSP synthesis and verification environment.
“Companies are seeking a solution that bridges the gap between their DSP algorithm development teams and their ASIC and FPGA design teams. Their goals are to increase verification performance, reduce design iterations and shorten design cycle times,” said Dan Ganousis, president and CEO of AccelChip. “By combining Bit-tru’s expertise and extensive block- and platform-level libraries with AccelChip’s advanced algorithmic synthesis and verification environment, AccelChip is uniquely positioned to deliver this solution.”
“We were impressed with AccelChip’s world-class software development team and the strength of their management,” said Tom Cesear, cofounder of Bit-tru. “By combining forces, we’re now able to provide a solution that delivers on the promise of algorithmic synthesis including increased performance and reduced system costs, power or form factors.”
AccelChip provides a synthesis and verification environment for DSP algorithm designers who implement in FPGAs or ASICs. The toolset automatically converts MATLAB designs from floatingpoint to fixed-point, providing designers the ability to verify the implementation much sooner in the process. AccelChip also enables rapid design exploration targeting performance, power, area, and cost tradeoffs for optimal results. The output is a technology optimized synthesizable netlist that fits into standard ASIC and FPGA design flows. Unlike other architecture synthesis tools, AccelChip uses a single golden design source throughout the process, eliminating time consuming and error prone rewrites.
AccelChip Consulting Services, AccelChip DSP Synthesis and Bit-tru’s optimized DSP models are currently all available. Bit-tru’s optimized DSP models will be integrated into AccelChip DSP Synthesis in the fourth quarter of 2003.
