System Platform for Energy Efficient Design - SPEED

Differentiating platform solutions built on state-of-the-art IP & architectures, customized by unique system level utilities

Easier, faster, safer design of energy efficient SoC

Do more with less energy

With Moore’s law slowing down the breakthrough in Energy Efficiency for the next generation designs, solutions should now be sought with chip customization and advanced design techniques. Moreover, edge computing and smart sensors are calling for massive improvements in energy efficient usage and data processing.

Technology scaling can no longer answer next generation IoT applications requirements, the only path forward is with pre-configured and validated IP clusters which reduce design cycle time and enable silicon specialization.
