Target Compiler Technologies ASIPs (Application-Specific Processors) deliver greater computational efficiencies than merchant processors and more flexibility than fixed-function RTL designs. As such, they are the ideal technology to consider for performance and power sensitive design elements in next-generation SoCs – particularly where flexibility provides a key competitive advantage. Imagine being able to:
- Create differentiating IP that meets market demands for performance and power dissipation, yet is programmable from C
- Adjust performance sensitive algorithms without requiring silicon respins
- Enable your customer base to differentiate their products using their own proprietary algorithmic IP
- Reduce schedule risk and improve time to market
Interoperability Description and Customer Benefit Tell me more about Target Compiler Technologies and Virtualizer.
Target’s solutions represent a novel design paradigm to accelerate the design of application-specific processors (ASIPs). ASIP models created using IP Designer (a retargetable tool-suite for ASIP design) and IP Programmer (efficient SDKs for ASIP-based SoCs) can be used in Synopsys Virtualizer as processor models and application specific sub-systems. The interface is established using SystemC TLM-2.0 APIs.
