February 20, 2006 -- Celoxica, Ltd. has joined the Texas Instruments, Inc. (TI) TMS320 third party program and will present its DSP-FPGA design solutions during the 2006 TI Developer Conference, February 28 to March 2, in Dallas, Texas.
Celoxica’s electronic system level (ESL) technology provides a C-based design and synthesis flow for DSP-FPGA system development. It leverages API specifications for DSP-FPGA communication and allows creation of applications and IP to a single set of standard interfaces independent of board level detail. Celoxica’s design solutions support other popular design environments such as TI’s Code Composer Studio Integrated Development Environment, Mathworks' Simulink, and Diamond from 3L. “The C-based design flow for software and the programmable hardware components of a system broadens the reach of DSP based solutions containing FPGA technology. Celoxica’s design solutions enhance the development experience of our customers who need to reduce design time and accelerate complex algorithms,” said Jennifer Skinner-Gray, Worldwide DSP Partner Network Manager for TI.
Presenting in the TIDC Systems track, Celoxica will demonstrate how hardware, software and systems developers can overcome the traditional DSP and FPGA design barrier by combining C-based design with model-based design. Initially focusing on image processing and software defined radio (SDR) systems development, the flow from algorithm to implementation will be shown and complementary use of DSP and FPGA will be discussed along with the characteristics of board level platforms.
“More and more developers are using our DK Design Suite to accelerate complex algorithms and signal processing in mixed DSP/FPGA systems,” said Jeff Jussel vice president worldwide marketing for Celoxica. “Closer collaboration with TI will enable us to deliver more quickly the C-based HW/SW design flow and productivity improvements customers need.”
