BitSim Contributes BADGE Graphics Accelerator for Enhanced Visual Effects
Michel Le Lan, Atmel's Marketing Director for ASICs, commented, "We welcome BitSim to the growing ecosystem of expert design centers that we are building around CAP. BitSim's focus on the critically important Northern Europe region complements our provision in other regions, and their BADGE graphics accelerator, which can co-exist with other customer-specific IP in the CAP MP Block, fully exploits the advantages of the CAP architecture."
Anders Sivard, BitSim's CEO, added, "We see great opportunities for compact and effective customer solutions with Atmel's CAP platform in many different applications in our four focus areas: Chip Design, Digital Signal Processing, High Speed Communications System Design, and Video/Graphics. CAP together with our BADGE graphics IP is an excellent example of a perfect match, and we are looking forward to exploring these possibilities together with Atmel."
