Dear Readers,

We are pleased to announce the launch of C to Silicon Compiler, a high–level synthesis product that improves designer productivity up to 10 times in creating and re–using system–on–chip IP. The innovative technology in C–to–Silicon Compiler helps bridge the gap between register transfer level (RTL) models–commonly used to verify, implement, and integrate SoCs–and system–level models, usually written in C/C++ and SystemC.

The Power Forward Initiative continues to gain momentum with three Japanese design services companies – NIPPON SYSTEMWARE CO., LTD. (NSW), Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd. (DNP) and Toppan Technical Design Center Co., Ltd. – recently joining the initiative and are offering Common Power Format (CPF)–enabled low-power design capabilities to their design services customers. With the addition of these three leading Japanese design centers the PFI increases its membership to over 30 companies around the world, representing a broad spectrum of IC design, IP, service and manufacturing providers.

Read more about these two announcements in this newsletter.
