Sunplus Core Technology Speeds Prototype Verification of Multimedia ICs with S2C's FPGA Prototyping System Sep 10, 2011

Sunplus Achieves Significant Productivity and Time-to-Market Benefits

Shanghai, China – September 9, 2011 – Sunplus Core Technology (SCT) offers 32-bit embedded processor and VLIW DSP chips for a broad range of multimedia applications with rich features, such as networking, audio/video codec and many other capabilities. To ensure that these chips function correctly, FPGA-based prototype boards from S2C are used for hardware verification, software integration, and system validation of key IP blocks, design modules and entire chips. By deploying SpringSoft's new Probe Visualizer with off-the-shelf prototype boards, SCT engineers are able to increase design visibility and simplify debug of high-speed, low-power chip designs and interfaces for a variety of camera, LCD monitor and microphone/speaker systems.

"Multimedia ICs are pushing the limits of functionality and system integration today to power the next-generation of high quality, intelligent surveillance systems. Because these chips are more complex than ever before, prototype verification is now a critical part of the development methodology," said Henry Lee, CTO from Sunplus Core Technology. "While current FPGA debug solutions do not adequately address the magnitude of this challenge, SpringSoft's ProtoLink approach helps to reduce the verification burden with better visibility and cuts debug time by one third to one week for faster debug turnaround."
