SoCs containing ASIPs require a commercial-quality, well-supported SDK—including a highly optimizing C-compiler and lightning fast simulation model. IP Programmer™ provides just that.
IP Programmer is available to SoC architects who are using IP Designer, or to companies subscribing to our ASIP modeling services. Through IP Programmer, an ASIP-specific software development kit (SDK) can be obtained for any ASIP designed with IP Designer.
The SDK contains ASIP-specific instances of Chess, Checkers, Bridge, Darts and ChessDE. These tools have the same functionality as in the retargetable IP Designer distribution, except that they work for one ASIP architecture only. The ASIP-specific tool-kit is intended for software developers who wish to implement their algorithms on the Synopsys ASIP.
