PARIS - Cadence Design Systems Inc. and Xilinx Inc. announced they have launched a Xilinx IP Ecosystem microsite, as part of the ChipEstimate.com portal, to facilitate FPGA and ASIC designers' access to the latest IP supporting the Xilinx programmable platform.
The microsite, available here, gathers Xilinx's full FPGA IP catalog, in addition to IP from an initial set of the company's third-party Alliance Members.
"This new microsite enables our existing FPGA customers, as well as ASIC developers looking at alternative solutions, to find the key IP they need to develop their designs on the Xilinx programmable platform," stated Dave Tokic, senior director of Partner Ecosystems and Alliances at Xilinx.
Tokic continued: "With a worldwide audience of more than 30,000 registered users, ChipEstimate.com is a great venue for both the ASIC and FPGA communities to learn about the latest IP available on Xilinx FPGAs."
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
