Synopsys Platform Architect now features Multicore Optimization Technology. Platform Architect with Multicore Optimization Technology is ideal for performance analysis and early definition of multicore system architectures in SystemC. The new solution enables SoCs, chipsets and systems designers to capture hardware/software performance models of multicore system architectures in the early concept phase for robust performance measurement and trade-off analysis, months prior to software availability.
The 2010.1 release of CoWare Platform Architect and CoWare Virtual Platform features system-centric analysis. The system-centric analysis offers non-intrusive data collection, Eclipse-based visualization, and meaningful system metrics. Early users of the system-centric analysis have reported identifying and addressing design issues in a matter of hours rather than days or weeks. The 2010.1 Release of CoWare Platform Architect, CoWare Virtual Platform, and the CoWare Model Library are available now.
The CoWare SBL-301 SystemC Bus Library for Platform Architect enables early configuration, exploration, and optimization of next-generation system-on-chip (SoC) architectures using AMBA technology-based virtual platforms in SystemC. The new CoWare SBL-301 SystemC Bus Library and architecture design solution featuring CoWare Platform Architect and AMBA designer ADR-301 is available for early customer evaluation now. Production release is expected in December 2009.
