Orion offers system architects a better way to design way to design and optimize SoCs. Starting with high-level system requirement as inputs. Orion uses its built-in interconnect synthesis engine to construct an optimized network-on-chip solution.
NetSpeed’s advanced NoC IP platform bridges the difficult gap between architecture specification and design implementation. NetSpeed platform brings the benefits of synthesis to front-end design with an intelligent platform that automates the architecture process and identifies optimal design solutions.
NetSpeed has industry’s first and only interconnect synthesis engine to optimize PPA. NocStudio includes tools that enable architects to design, configure and simulate NetSpeed IP as well as evaluate multiple SoC architectures.
NetSpeed platform is a requirements driven design flow that synthesizes SoC interconnect and optimizes PPA based on user specifications. The fabric itself can be designed and customized based on fine-grained user requirements and inputs.
NetSpeed's technology adapts to floorplan and uses placement information to automate timing closure and thus creates a design that is ready for first-pass timing closure.
NetSpeed is relentlessly focused on giving customers industry’s best PPA (Power, Performance and Area). With its unique heterogeneous architecture, NetSpeed’s NoC platform delivers scalable high performance and can support an ever increasing number of IP blocks in a SoC. NetSpeed’s technology uses a physically distributed architecture that enables architects to get the best-in-class performance from the coherent and non-coherent interconnect.
NetSpeed NoC platform has advanced analysis tools that allows for fast, accurate simulation without the additional overhead of building complex models of endpoints. Using these tools enables more iterations early in the design process, allowing for better exploration of the solution space and a better design in less time.
NocStudio has an integrated performance simulator with powerful data analytics tool suite that analyze the traffic specification of a SoC and provides insight on the performance bottlenecks in the system. Architects can perform performance,area tradeoff analysis with realtime feedback.
NetSpeed IP is constructed to be deadlock free. NocStudio uses graph theory based approach and formal techniques to ensure that there are no cycles in the entire message dependency chain of the system, there-by ensuring a deadlock-free solution.
Dynamic performance and use case evaluation is performed using traces and sophisticated trigger graph models. Complex simulations using trigger graphs enable rapid and accurate NoC evaluation in complex systems by allowing fast benchmarking of evolving endpoint behavior and traffic specifications.
