Silexica launches next generation SLX to match growing demands in multicore industry

  • Analyze, Optimize and Implement approach created to deliver multicore solutions in four key markets
  • New version enables more integration and flexibility for customers with full C++ flow
  • Silexica further expands customer reach with new offices in the USA and Japan

Cologne, Germany – October 30, 2017 –  Silexica has announced the next generation of its programming technology SLX to deliver the most challenging multicore projects in the aerospace & defence, automotive, wireless and embedded vision industries.

SLX now focusses on the three key phases of a multicore project:

  • Analyze: For absolute code understanding and to extract further parallelism
  • Optimize: To conduct high-quality analyses and automatically distribute your software
  • Implement: Precise guidance and planning for the final stage of transferring to multicore

For the first time, SLX will be available as a cloud-based version called The introduction follows a successful trial phase in the summer when over 100 software professionals signed up to test the technology. It includes the full range of the new C++ application flows from the latest SLX desktop version within a Software as a Service environment so it’s as accessible as possible. can be used on-premise within a private network ensuring your IP or software code is secure.

“SLX has been strengthened and extended based on customer feedback to match all the phases of a multicore project,” says Maximilian Odendahl, CEO of Silexica. “No industry is as fast-paced and changing as quickly as the multicore challenges within them right now. We don’t just have to keep up with what software professionals are working on today, we need to be two or three steps ahead with what is coming next. provides a simple way to get started for professionals working on multicore programming challenges.”

SLX is used by a growing number of customers including: Denso, Ricoh and Fujitsu. Since Silexica was founded in 2014, it has grown to over 50 employees and this summer saw offices opened in the USA and Japan (in addition to the German HQ) to better serve existing clients and attract new clients.


The new release sees SLX support applications written in a parallel specification for extracting even further parallelism and understanding system behaviors. Target specific applications can now run on-board in dynamic environments.  For rapid prototyping, SLX has enhanced his existing support with the latest OpenMP 4.5 standard. Further automation was added to the SLX Automotive flow, supporting both AUTOSAR classic as well as bare-metal implementation. 

SLX is available immediately for a free trial in cloud or desktop versions at:
