SoCs containing ASIPs require a commercial-quality, well-supported SDK - including a highly optimizing C-compiler and 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 IP Designer tools and offer the same functionality as in the retargetable IP Designer distribution, but they work for one ASIP architecture only. The ASIP-specific tool-kit is intended for software developers who wish to implement their algorithms on this ASIP.
