Cadence Design Systems has established a new R&D facility in Pune, which will develop configurable processors and related products, the Hindu Business Line reported.

Two years ago, Cadence acquired Tensilica, which put up an R&D facility in Pune in 2006.

"The team in Pune is working on cutting-edge development of digital signal processors (DSP) and other IP technology, and the Pune facility is among the best-in-class globally," Business Line quoted Jaswinder Ahuja, corporate vice president and managing director at Cadence, as saying.

The new facility will engage in designing software for different Tensilica DSP cores, creating an integrated design environment for Xtensa processors, contributing to RTL verification and providing technical support to customers globally.

Cadence recently launched the Tensilica Vision P5 digital signal processor (DSP), its flagship high-performance vision/imaging DSP core. This imaging and vision DSP core offers up to 13X performance boost, with an average of 5X less energy usage on vision tasks compared to the previous generation IVP-EP imaging and video DSP.

Cadence, based in San Jose, Calif., is a provider of EDA and semiconductor IP. It also offers a growing portfolio of design IP and verification IP for memories, interface protocols, analogue/mixed-signal components and specialised processors.
