Tensilica Adds Support for Low-Cost, Hardware-Based Simulations of Diamond Standard Processors

Tensilica is now supporting Avnet LX60 FPGA boards for high-speed hardware-based simulations of its Diamond Standard processor family. Software developers can use these popular, very-low-cost FPGA boards, which allow Diamond Standard processor cores to run on Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGAs, to speed their software design, debug and program optimization processes.

CMC Microsystems Provides Hundreds of Canadian University Researchers with Access to Tensilica Prototyping Technology for Designs Using Xtensa LX2

CMC Microsystems has upgraded its license for Tensilica’s Xtensa LX2 processor generator, boosting the prototyping capability available to university researchers through Canada’s System-on-Chip Research Network (SOCRN).

This technology, which helps optimize designs by reducing the power and increasing the efficiency of the chip, will enable engineers at 36 participating SOCRN universities to create FPGA-based hardware prototypes for designs that include customized versions of the Xtensa LX2 processor. The agreement will enable wider use and application of system-on-chip (SOC) designs with Tensilica’s Xtensa-based configurable processor technology.
