Co-optimized tools and Fusion QIKs reference flows for SiFive RISC-V processor cores
Deliver optimized system performance with Synopsys Interface IP and Fusion QIKs for SiFive RISC-V processor cores
Synopsys Fusion QuickStart Implementation Kits (QIKs) optimize the performance, power, and area (PPA) of SiFive's Intelligence™ X280, Performance™ P550, and future processor cores. The QIKs include implementation scripts, reference guides, and a baseline floor plan to kickstart implementation. By utilizing QIKs and leveraging Synopsys’ Fusion Compiler RTL-to-GDSII design product and Synopsys Design Space Optimization (DSO.ai™), the development of SiFive RISC-V based SoC designs can be accelerated.
As the market transitions to zonal architectures, and manufacturers require the energy efficiency, simplicity, security, and software flexibility, Synopsys EDA design and verification solutions provide prototyping efficiency and PPA optimizing SiFive’s Automotive™ E6-A, X280-A, and S7-A solutions for infotainment, cockpit, connectivity, ADAS, and electrification applications.
Virtualizer Development Kits (VDKs) are software development tools integrating fast functional models of specific multicore systems, multicore software debugging/analysis tools and sample software stacks. Virtual prototypes provide fast, fully functional software models of systems under development executing unmodified production code and providing higher debugging/analysis efficiency. SiFive and Synopsys are working closely together to provide an early software development solution for SiFive processor cores.
As we push the performance of application-specific processors, our collaboration with Synopsys enables us to deliver higher quality, PPA-optimized RISC-V solutions that meet and beat our customers’ compute goals."
