Codasip Enables Sigma Designs' Next-Generation Smart Home Products

SAN JOSE, Calif. and PRAGUE, March 31, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —

SAN JOSE, Calif. and PRAGUE, March 31, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Codasip, an industry-leading provider of IP and EDA tools that enable adoption of Application Specific Instruction-set Processors (ASIPs) today announced availability of enhancements to Codasip Studio and Codix IP cores to enable Smart Home and other applications, including Sigma Designs' Z-Wave wireless control products and services. 

The need for reliable connectivity in the Internet of Things (IoT), evolving smart sensor technology, and a multitude of consumer applications are driving demand for new processing solutions. The standard "one size fits all" embedded processor model is no longer applicable, and Codasip is at the heart of this technology change, with advanced ASIP technology that improves performance while maintaining the ease of use of a standard processor.

"Applications for the Internet of Things and the Smart Home are both growing quickly and becoming more demanding, breaking the traditional embedded processor model. Standard processors no longer deliver the power, performance and size needed for these evolving applications," said Karel Masarik, CEO, Codasip. "Our advanced ASIP products help to meet these requirements, and we are excited to help lead the way in enabling expansion of the Smart Home market."

ASIPs are optimized for specific applications by tailoring the instruction-set, adding specific instructions that can significantly boost performance, while removing others which are not relevant for the application. The end result is the best possible performance, power, size and cost. Codasip's unique technology significantly simplifies the creation of these processors and the associated Software Design Kits (compiler, assembler, debugger, virtual prototype, etc.), and automates the generation of the design, verification, and programming infrastructure necessary for successful deployment.

"ASIPs provide outstanding performance and flexibility, enabling development of application-specific multi-processor designs with the simplicity of standard processors," said Niels Johansen VP Z-Wave R&D, Sigma Designs. "The high degree of automation offered by the Codasip tools, as well as the availability of the Codix IP cores, can also improve productivity and time-to-market."
