Synopsys High Performance Core (HPC) Design Kit

Synopsys HPC Design Kit, part of Synopsys’ Foundation IP portfolio, is a suite of high-speed and high-density memories and logic libraries that allow SoC designers to optimize any processor cores for maximum speed, smallest area, lowest power, or an optimum balance of the three for their specific application. With optimized standard cells and SRAMs, the HPC Design Kit enables designers to optimize all of the processors on an SoC with a single package, reducing design costs and improving time-to-market. Optimized reference scripts and expert core implementation services are also available to help design teams achieve their processor and SoC design goals in the shortest possible time.

The latest HPC Design Kit allows SoC designers to optimize the Synopsys EV6x Embedded Vision Processor’s vector DSPs and convolutional neural network (CNN) engines. Depending on the requirements of the target application, designers using the HPC Design Kit for EV6x can optimize their implementation to achieve a 39% power reduction, a 10% reduction in area, or a 7% performance boost for their SoCs.

The HPC Design Kit is an add-on to the Duet Package of Embedded Memories and Logic Libraries.
