Sonics, Inc., the world’s foremost supplier of on-chip network (NoC) technologies and services, and Magillem, the leading provider of front-end design Extensible Markup Language (XML) solutions that reduce the global cost of complex, system-on-chip (SoC) and field programmable gate array (FPGA) platforms, today announced their partnership on SoC methodologies and design flows. The companies are collaborating to ease integration of Sonics IP into the SoC design flows for heterogeneous, multi-core devices. Sonics has incorporated Magillem’s IP-XACT Checker suite into the validation process for its highly configurable NoC products to ensure the broadest and most complete support for customer tool environments.
Looking forward in the partnership, Sonics and Magillem will explore automatic creation of design derivatives that incorporate newer versions of the Sonics NoC. The built-in update features of Magillem’s Design Life tool will be used as a foundation for this project, which is focused on significantly shortening time-to-market and increasing overall quality of results.
