Software Porting to Tensilica-based Multicore SOC Designs now aided by PolyCore Software’s Poly-Platform

PolyCore Software, Inc. (PSI) and Tensilica, Inc. today announced a partnership to make it easier and faster for developers to port their software to, or design software for, integrated circuits with multiple Tensilica dataplane processors (DPUs). PSI's Poly-Platform toolset now comprehends Tensilica's entire DPU family, which ranges from small footprint controllers to the industry's highest-performance DSP (digital signal processor) IP core, with many variations in between.

Funitsu F-12C cel phone features Tensilica's Hifi Audio DSP

F-12C's advanced audio technology enables a wide range of features that make the handset easier to hear, including "Super HAKKIRI VOICE (extra-clear voice) 3," which enhances the clarity of the caller's voice in noisy or crowded places, and "PITTARI VOICE (exact voice)," which adjusts the phone's audio to the proper volume based on the user's body movements when walking or running. As well, the smartphone is equipped with a voice balance feature that automatically accentuates the high-pitched portions of the sound of the other person's voice, making it easier to hear.

White Paper: Optimize SOC Performance Using Memory Tuning and System Simulation

Memory tuning allows you to choose memory-related parameters for each on-chip processor core that balance system performance, processor area (cost), and memory size by exploring a target application's sensitivity to these memory-system parameters. The processor core's instruction-set simulator (ISS) plays a key and central role in this assessment because the ISS can model and report the expected system performance, providing a breakdown of memory-related stalls.
