Axis Systems Offers High Performance Intellectual Property for System-On-Chip Verification
SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 5, 2001-- Axis Systems, Inc., today announced a new product, IP Builder(TM), that enables high-performance verification of System-On-Chip (SoC) designs by accelerating the Intellectual Property (IP) models, such as embedded processors, used in networking and multimedia designs.
IP Builder enables IP suppliers to deliver accelerated, secure and portable cores to customers using simulation and emulation products from Axis Systems. Based on patented ReConfigurable Computing (RCC) technology, Axis Systems' products provide, on a single platform with one design database, software simulation, accelerated simulation, system emulation and hardware/software co-verification.
Steve Wang, vice president of marketing at Axis Systems remarked, ``Being able to accelerate IP models is on the wish list of many of our networking customers. Our IP Builder enables IP core providers to offer secure accelerated embedded processor models, so that our common customers can debug their software using a high-performance system verification solution. And what's really unique about our solution is that the designers can now accelerate their IP without having access to the actual source.''
More About IP Builder
IP Builder uses the compiler technology in Axis Systems' products to create a protected Binary Object Model (BOM) that is mapped into the RCC elements. IP suppliers will use Axis Systems' verification products to validate their embedded models and once fully verified, use IP Builder to protect their intellectual property for distribution. Since IP Builder uses the same compiler as Axis Systems' verification products, the pre-compiled cores are guaranteed to function the same way the IP providers verified them. By providing pre-compiled models, customers can link multiple IP from various vendors into their designs.
Price and Availability
IP Builder will be available in Q2 of 2001. Pricing begins at $95,000 (USD).
