AccelChip, Systems4Silicon Expand Wireless and DSP Design Services

9/2/2005 - To bolster the company’s design service capacity, AccelChip Inc., the industry’s only provider of automated flows from MATLAB® algorithms to silicon, announced that it is partnering with Systems4Silicon, Ltd., a fully-independent design services company, to provide third-party design and methodology services to their mutual customers.

“Systems4Silicon has a thorough understanding of wireless channel, RF, and digital signal processing algorithms such as filters, frequency translation, closed-loop control systems, and wireless modems,” said Tom Feist, vice president of marketing and international sales for AccelChip. “Their commitment to high-end digital design makes them an ideal partner to extend AccelChip’s design service offerings.”

AccelChip’s design services portfolio includes custom DSP core generation, training, and quick-start design services including design flow consulting and hardware-in-the-loop support. In addition AccelChip markets AccelChip® DSP Synthesis, which provides algorithm developers and design engineers the ability to take algorithms created in MATLAB and synthesize them into high-quality FPGA and ASIC implementations. The company’s AccelWare® parameterized DSP cores accelerate the design process by providing intellectual property for commonly used signal processing functions such as filters, forward error correction blocks, and linear algebra functions. Combined, the AccelChip solutions provide a complete DSP solution for markets such as wireless communications, signal intelligence, electronic warfare, radar, and sonar.

“A corner stone of Systems4Silicon is a strong belief in a process-driven approach to engineering that has been applied to develop a robust methodology for the design and implementation of algorithms targeted at FPGAs or DSPs,” added Dr. Paul Turner, co-founder of Systems4Silicon. “By including AccelChip DSP Synthesis and AccelWare parameterized DSP cores in our repertoire, we can now offer our customers an automated path from MATLAB to silicon implementation.”
