San Jose, Calif.Xilinx Inc.'s DSP development tools now deliver up to a 38 percent faster Fmax performance for multi-rate DSP designs and improved ease of use.
With the release of version 9.2 of the AccelDSP synthesis tool and System Generator for DSP, the development tool component of the Xilinx XtremeDSP solution, provides higher-levels of performance as well as a tighter integration between the two tools to simplify the FPGA design flow for developers who use both the MATLAB and Simulink modeling environments concurrently.
Using System Generator for DSP, developers of multi-rate DSP designs, typical of wireless and defense applications, will see up to a 38 percent improvement in Fmax performance when using version 9.2 with no modification to existing designs, according to Xilinx.
A new mapping algorithm has been implemented that uses register duplication and placement based on recursive partitioning of loads on high fanout nets typical of multi-rate designs.
Pricing: The System Generator for DSP tool and AccelDSP synthesis tool are priced at $995 and $4995, respectively.
Availability: The System Generator for DSP tool and AccelDSP synthesis tool are each sold separately and available immediately through the Xilinx Online Store at www.xilinx.com/onlinestore/index.htm.
