Synopsys Joins Nexus 5001(TM) Forum

PISCATAWAY, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- Mar 19, 2013 -- Synopsys, Inc., a global leader providing software, IP and services used to accelerate innovation in chips and electronic systems has joined Nexus 5001™ Forum, an industry consortium supporting the IEEE-ISTO 5001™ (Nexus 5001) standard for debug in high-performance processors, digital controllers, and system-on-chip (SoC) devices.

"The Nexus 5001 Forum was established to address the need for an open standard for embedded processor debug," said Mike Thompson, senior manager, ARC Processor Marketing at Synopsys. "By joining the Nexus 5001 Forum, Synopsys is able to share our knowledge of embedded processors and systems to help guide future versions of this standard, while enhancing the debugging capabilities of our processor solutions."

The Nexus 5001 Forum Standard defines a high performance general-purpose interface for the software development and debug of embedded processors. As advances in higher-performance embedded processors and semiconductor and system design continue, embedded instrumentation and tools for analysis, debug, and calibration become critical features for applications. Nexus 5001 Forum members collaborate to advance standards based solutions for the industry.

"We welcome Synopsys to the Nexus 5001 community and are pleased to have Synopsys' involvement in Nexus Forum. As a major force in the EDA and IP industry, Synopsys is an ideal partner to contribute to the continued success of the Nexus 5001 standard," said Neal Stollon, Chairman, Nexus 5001 Forum. "We look forward to Synopsys processor IP joining the array of cores that utilize the Nexus 5001 Standard as it continues to evolve to meet the debug needs of embedded processors and SoC products in a wide number of applications."
