eSilicon adds IP to its suite of online SoC automation tools

IP MarketPlace™ environment facilitates exploration of eSilicon memory IP

SAN JOSE, Calif. — May 23, 2014 — eSilicon Corporation, a leading independent semiconductor design and manufacturing solutions provider, today announced the expansion of its online automation suite with the addition of the IP MarketPlace™ environment, which provides interactive exploration of eSilicon-designed compilable memories. eSilicon will demonstrate this new capability at the 51st Design Automation Conference (DAC), to be held at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California, June 2 to June 4, 2014.

The IP MarketPlace environment provides the ability to explore the complete product line of compilable memories from eSilicon. Through an intuitive, easy-to-use interface, various memory configurations may be browsed to determine the best power, performance or area (PPA) fit for a particular system-on-chip (SoC) design. Microsoft Excel summaries of PPA performance of the chosen memories can then be downloaded for further analysis, along with datasheets and IP silicon reports.

"Memories are now a very large portion of all SoCs, typically accounting for 50 percent or more of the chip," said Patrick Soheili, vice president and general manager, IP Solutions at eSilicon. "eSilicon's suite of compilable memories can significantly improve the PPA result for many designs. The IP MarketPlace environment will make those PPA savings easier to access for a wide range of customers."

eSilicon will be demonstrating the IP MarketPlace environment in booth 512 at DAC. You can find more information about eSilicon's other DAC activities here.

Availability
The IP MarketPlace environment will be available for general customer use in the fall of 2014. Access will be through eSilicon's public website. Please click here if you would like to be notified when the IP MarketPlace environment is publicly available.
