Processor Designer dramatically accelerates the design of application-specific instruction-set processors (ASIP) through automated software development tools, RTL and ISS generation from a single, high-level specification. An ASIP might be a custom processor or a programmable accelerator. Custom processors are increasingly essential to support the convergence of multiple functionalities all on a single system-on-chip (SoC), addressing the need for programmability, power efficiency and performance. Demanding applications like audio, security, networking, baseband, control and industrial automation are ideal for ASIPs. Embedded vision is another key domain, with applications such as advanced driver assistance systems, gesture control and augmented reality calling for performance and power optimized processors.
