Application Specific Instruction-Set Processors (ASIPs) 

Enabling the Design of Multicore SoCs with Application-Specific Processors 

For applications requiring highly specialized processing, application-specific instruction-set processors (ASIPs) deliver greater computational efficiencies than general purpose processors and more flexibility than fixed-function RTL designs. ASIP Designer is the leading tool solution for creating ASIPs, which might be custom processors or programmable hardware accelerators that serve in next-generation SoCs, particularly where re-programmability provides a key competitive advantage. ASIP Designer enables designers to:
  • Create customized processing elements that are programmable in C
  • Adjust performance-sensitive algorithms without requiring silicon respins
  • Differentiate products using their own proprietary algorithmic IP
  • Reduce schedule risk and improve time-to-market using a proven, highly automated tool approach
