Overcoming the Power Problem with HLS for IoT Applications
Developing an ecosystem and methodology using high-level synthesis (HLS) design to manage complex designs and cutting the time of design of ASICs and FPGAs is a constant challenge for hardware and software engineers. SLX’s Tool Suite, in combination with Catapult™ software HLS platform, provides an HLS design flow and ecosystem for hardware and software engineers to improve performance and support lower uses of power and energy in the design of complex multicore SoCs, ASIC IP, and FPGAs.
“Developing more advanced machine learning/AI for smarter IoT applications for ASICs and FPGAs continues to require deeper application insights, parallelism detection, and memory optimization to reduce design times,” said Jordon Inkeles, Vice President of Product, Silexica. “Being part of Mentor’s Catapult HLS ecosystem to develop an effective HLS methodology are challenges we are committed to solving so that our customers and partners can develop innovative products.”
Silexica (SLX) provides software development tools, allowing technology companies to take innovative IP or intelligent products from concept to deployment. Enabled by metrics-driven software analysis and execution behavior insights, the SLX programming tools disrupt the journey from software to application-specific hardware.
Founded in 2014, Silexica is headquartered in Germany with offices in the US, Japan, and Pakistan. It serves innovative companies in the automotive, robotics, wireless communications, aerospace, and financial industries and has received $28M in funding from international investors.
