Free Diamond Core Software Development and Modeling Tools

Tensilica is offering free evaluation versions of the Diamond Standard Software Toolkit, the advanced software development and modeling environment for the Diamond Standard processor core family, which was announced on February 20, 2006. The Toolkit is available for immediate download from Tensilica’s web site at

Software and firmware engineers will want to explore the Diamond processor software development tools to learn how easy it is to port application code to the Diamond core processor family, and to experience the code performance and code size advantages of the Tensilica Xtensa instruction set architecture. Powerful visualization tools enable software developers to graphically view and compare profiling results.

Hardware design teams will want to take advantage of this free evaluation to experiment with the clock-cycle accurate, pipeline-modeling instruction set simulator and the associated performance modeling visualization views within the graphical user interface that show pipeline activity, cache utilization rates, and cycles spent on bus cycle activity.
