Sanyo selects CoWare's LISATek for custom DSP design
Sanyo Electric Co. Ltd has purchased LISATek processor designer and processor generator software, as well as consulting services from CoWare Inc. The three-year purchase agreement will enable Sanyo to replace its current manual design methods with a LISATek-based methodology to reduce its DSP core design cycle time by fifty to sixty-six percent.
Based on the LISA 2.0 language, LISATek automatically generates the software development environment (assembler, debugger and linker) from the LISA 2.0 model.
According to CoWare, LISATek has the capacity to generate RTL code directly. Sanyo can use that code for implementing its next-generation DSP.
Sanyo already uses CoWare's ConvergenSC system-level design tools, so the company will be able to establish an integrated ESL design environment using the fast LISATek-generated ISS model. Through these capabilities, SANYO expects to further decrease its design cycle time.
