Sundance DSP manufactures and supplies advanced digital signal processing (DSP) and reconfigurable computing platforms, advanced IP cores, libraries and tools.
The folks at Sundance say that their PARS (Parallel Application from Rapid Simulation) software development environment was named winner of the prestigious Software Design category at the Institution of Engineering and Technology's (IET) Innovation Awards 2008.
Targeted at multiprocessor applications, PARS enables application designers to generate system target code, including DSP codes, FPGA codes, and all of the required inter-processor communication and synchronization codes from a Simulink model. Created as a value-add companion to The MathWorks model-based design flow PARS boasts multiple design wins and also supports The Mathwork's RTW-EC and HDLCoder.
The Innovation Awards span 15 categories and attracted hundreds of entries from around the world. They represent a unique opportunity for industry innovators to be recognized and provide a showcase for the brightest ideas, highlighting the importance of innovation by celebrating its application across a range of engineering disciplines.
The IET Innovation Awards 2008 are generously sponsored by: ABB, Accenture, Amplicon, BT, Cre8Ventures, Halcrow Yolles, National Grid, The MathWorks, National Physical Laboratory (NPL), RS Components, Siemens Transmission and Distribution Ltd (STDL), Withers & Rogers LLP, and Nortel Networks. The awards are supported by the Department of Innovation, Universities & Skills (DIUS).
