Reflex CES: Linking IP, FPGAs, and IEDM

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

 

France-based Reflex CES [Custom Embedded Systems] announced this week what the company calls “the industry’s first release of the Reflex CES Aurora-like IP core based on Altera FPGAs. The core enables interoperability between Xilinx Virtex-6 LXT and Altera Stratix IV and Stratix V GX FPGAs.”

Sylvain Neveu, Reflex CES Co-founder and CEO, is quoted: “With our Reflex CES Aurora-like IP core, designers can easily migrate to new FPGA families with minimum risks, reuse their previous designs, and choose the best FPGA technology for their boards and systems using the Aurora protocol.”

So if that’s an Aurora-like IP core, what’s an Aurora IP core? The answer is, it’s from Xilinx:

Esencia: from services to software

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

 

Last month, Lou Covey posted comments regarding a blog posted here about Esencia Technologies, the company that received Software Best-in-Show at ARM TechCon. He took issue with my suggestion that it was unclear why Esencia received the award.

Covey’s comments prompted my phone call with Karl Kaiser, VP of Engineering at Esencia, who explained: “EScala is a design platform that takes a C algorithm for things like MP3 encoders, and creates an IP block for the design – a reprogrammable core for the target architecture. EScala allows you to generate a core that fits your algorithm.

“At Esencia, we have provided a lot of ASIC design services and wanted to find a way to simplify the traditional RTL flow – architecting, partitioning, implementing, and writing the testbench. EScala is a result of that effort and is unlike anything else on the market.
