Optimized Reference Flow Enables Customers to Hit Performance Targets Quickly
"MIPS Technologies is working with leaders such as Synopsys to ensure our customers have an optimized flow that will enable rapid implementation with a high degree of confidence using industry standard technology," said Victor Peng, vice president of engineering at MIPS Technologies. "The Galaxy platform exceeded our expectations during the development process and we expect customers using it will get their 24K core-based designs to market more quickly with reduced overall design requirements."
"Our focus with the Galaxy Design Platform is to produce the highest performing designs with the fastest time-to-results by reducing iterations with our convergent design flow," said Antun Domic, senior vice president and general manager of the Implementation Group at Synopsys. "By working with MIPS Technologies to provide a reference flow for the 24K family, we can better support our joint customers by improving the convergence in their design process and increasing their confidence level in hitting their performance requirements."
Availability of the Reference Methodology
MIPS Technologies is offering customers of the 24K core family the Synopsys Galaxy Design Platform reference methodology with the relevant synthesis scripts and floorplanning information. Support for the reference methodology is provided by MIPS Technologies. For more details, visit the MIPS Technologies Website or contact the company at 650-567-5000 or email at Email Contact.
About the MIPS32 24K Family
The MIPS32 24K core family, which includes the 24Kc(TM), 24Kc Pro, 24Kf(TM) and 24Kf Pro versions, offers performance from 400 to 550 MHz worst case in a 0.13 micron process, the highest frequency available in 32-bit synthesizable cores for embedded markets, while minimizing design time and reducing product costs. Tailored SOC design methodologies, an Open Core Protocol (OCP) interconnect structure, standard libraries and on-chip memories from industry-leading companies help speed time-to-market, an important advantage for a processor core suited to embedded consumer applications such as digital and interactive TVs, set-top boxes and DVD players.
