Thursday, September 17, 2020 - 12:00am

Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS )today announced that NSITEXE, a group company of DENSO Corporation that develops and sells high-performance semiconductor IP, used the Synopsys ASIP Designer Tool in the development of five specialized custom processors, including dedicated vector-processing engines, for its automotive data flow processor (DFP) platform.

Key Points: 
  • Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS )today announced that NSITEXE, a group company of DENSO Corporation that develops and sells high-performance semiconductor IP, used the Synopsys ASIP Designer Tool in the development of five specialized custom processors, including dedicated vector-processing engines, for its automotive data flow processor (DFP) platform.
  • With ASIP Designer, NSITEXE was able to optimize the processors' multicore architecture and automatically generate software development kits (SDKs), enabling the company to design the custom processors in half the time compared to designing them from scratch.
  • ASIP Designer enabled us to develop the data flow processor model in record time and deliver it to the customer on schedule."
  • "Innovative companies like NSITEXE have adopted ASIP Designer to speed the development of their custom processors," said John Koeter, senior vice president of marketing and strategy for IP at Synopsys.
