Calypto Delivers Bus Interface Libraries to Easily Connect High Level Synthesis Models to ARM Platform

SANTA CLARA, Calif., – February 27, 2012 – Calypto® Design Systems, Inc., the leader in Electronic System Level (ESL) hardware design and Register Transfer Level (RTL) power optimization, today announced bus interface libraries that connect hardware subsystems implemented with Calypto’s High Level Synthesis product (HLS), Catapult® Synthesis, with AMBA® AXI™ bus interfaces. The libraries include master and slave interfaces with both Transaction Level Modeling (TLM) and HLS views, which allows easy interplay between a TLM 2.0 platform and HLS implementation flow without degrading simulation performance or hardware quality. The highly parameterizable AXI interface supports a wide range of configurations including burst modes, bus width and auxiliary control signals. 

 “The AXI interfaces are the first in a series of libraries in development at Calypto that will make Catapult C more readily available to mainstream designers,” said Shawn McCloud, Vice President of Marketing at Calypto. “They are written entirely in SystemC and tuned through the Catapult C synthesis tool. These interfaces are a great example of the benefits of mixing cycle accurate SystemC for control with abstract SystemC/C++ to implement a hardware subsystem.”

The AXI interface library is tuned so the resulting hardware is optimized for the user’s specific performance requirements, configuration mode and target technology. Availability in April, please contact Calypto Sales for specific pricing and information.

Machine-Learning Optimized Chip Design -- Cadence Design Systems

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

New applications and technology are driving demand for even more compute and functionality in the devices we use every day. System on chip (SoC) designs are quickly migrating to new process nodes, and rapidly growing in size and complexity. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rod Metcalfe about how machine learning combined with distributed computing offers new capabilities to automate and scale RTL to GDS chip implementation flows, enabling design teams to support more, and increasingly complex, SoC projects.
