Sonics Announces Innovative Design Environment for Accelerating Network-on-Chip Configuration

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jun 07, 2011 -- DESIGN AUTOMATION CONFERENCE -- Sonics, Inc.®, the world's number one supplier of on-chip communications IP, today announced Sonics StudioXE™, an innovative system-level design environment for rapid network-on-chip (NoC) configurability. Sonics StudioXE helps designers accelerate every stage of SoC design -- from early architectural exploration to final output, and features an array of robust utilities that help optimize for power, performance and area.

This week at the Design Automation Conference, Sonics announced and demonstrated its new reference design flow -- based on Sonics' StudioXE design environment -- in support for TSMC's recently announced Reference Flow 12 initiative as part of the TSMC Open Innovation Platform™ (OIP) Partner Pavilion, Booth # 2535. Sonics will also showcase its award-winning portfolio of on-chip networks and design tools in the IP SoC Village, Booth # 1915, at the San Diego Convention Center.

"As complexities continue to significantly increase on-chip, the need for an open, configurable and powerful design environment becomes essential for SoC designers and architects," said Jack Browne, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Sonics. "StudioXE allows our customers to design an advanced SoC with a level of precision, enabling them to closely track and tune performance, power and area throughout every step of the design."

StudioXE offers an intuitive GUI that provides architects and designers with a single design environment for assembling configuring and generating a complete SoC design. As a next-generation, modular, system-level design platform, StudioXE enables rapid integration and configuration of Sonics' on-chip network IP for highly complex SoCs.

With a flexible, open platform, StudioXE helps designers seamlessly integrate Sonics' IP into their SoC designs -- without any disruption to existing flows. As part of its modular framework, StudioXE is based on the open Eclipse framework and uses the industry standard IP-XACT format so designers can simply drop their IP into Sonics' StudioXE without compatibility issues or using additional tools to configure their IP. This also allows StudioXE and Sonics' IP to be integrated seamlessly into customers' design flow.
