ACE extends its compiler and customer design deal with Synopsys
May 31, 2013 // Nick Flaherty
Associated Compiler Experts (ACE) in Holland has extended its multi-year collaboration with Synopsys to integrate the ACE optimized compiler technology with Synopsys' Processor Designer product line and have ACE experts working under the Synopsys brand.
Synopsys Processor Designer accelerates the design and verification of application-specific instruction-set processors (ASIPs) for embedded applications that are deployed whenever power and/or performance requirements cannot be met by existing processor IP and programmability is still required. In many cases ASIP designs require C-compiler support to enhance programming efficiency. In these cases only the optimum combination of processor architecture and the associated compiler ensures the achievement of power and performance targets. Starting from a processor description in LISA (Language for Instruction Set Architectures), Processor Designer automatically generates the RTL as well as the software tools such as instruction-set simulator (ISS), linker, assembler, debugger and compiler. By licensing ACE's compiler development system and integrating it with Processor Designer, design engineers can automatically generate a C-compiler that deploys the dedicated optimization engines provided with the CoSy technology.All news
