AccelChip to Demonstrate IP-Explorer at Software Defined Radio Forum

11/10/2005 - AccelChip Inc., the industry’s leading provider of semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP) and software for MATLAB® and Simulink® DSP algorithms targeting FPGAs and ASICs, will be demonstrating its new IP-ExplorerTM Technology at the 2005 Software Defined Radio Technical Conference and Product Exposition in Orange County, California November 14-18, 2005 in booth #113.

The company is also presenting a paper titled, “Exploration of Least-Squares Solutions of Linear Systems of Equations with Fixed-Point Arithmetic” on Monday November 14th, at 2:00 PM. Dr. Thomas Cesear of AccelChip looks at the finite-precision effects of the Cholesky, QR, and singular value decomposition (SVD) matrix inversion techniques when used in a Generalized Sidelobe Canceling (GSC) beamformer. The paper will also be available on the AccelChip website immediately following the conference. Please visit for more information.

During the conference exposition the company will demonstrate the AccelChip® DSP Synthesis tool which reads in floating-point MATLAB, automates conversion to fixed-point, and synthesizes RTL (VHDL or Verilog) and Simulink models along with a self-checking testbench based on the original MATLAB. In addition, it will highlight the product’s new IP-Explorer Technology now included within AccelChip DSP Synthesis version 2005.4. This new technology extends the product’s ability to rapidly explore the design space for DSP algorithms by automating macro- and micro-architecture tradeoffs of key DSP building blocks. The result is an algorithmic synthesis solution with unparalleled automation and quality of results.

In addition to AccelChip DSP Synthesis with IP-Explorer technology, the company will be showcasing the newest linear algebra DSP IP core generators recently added to the popular AccelWare® Advanced Math Toolkit. These unique generators can be used in the deployment of adaptive filter algorithms commonly found in software defined radio solutions such as smart antenna beamforming applications.
