System on a Chip
A Smarter System.
Most high performance embedded systems traditionally require a combination of FPGAs, DSPs, GPPs, and/or hardware accelerators. This hybrid solution using a combination of processing devices involves multiple tool flows, inconsistent programming languages, and non-portable IP. The resulting co-design development process presents significant challenges in development, integration, verification, maintenance, and IP reuse.
Conversely, a single HyperX processor delivers sufficient processing power for most embedded systems. For applications needing multi-device computational power, any number of HyperX processors can be scaled though glueless interface and are supported by a programming model that extends seamlessly across chip boundaries. This yields a true software based system-on-a-chip computing platform, providing design flexibility, hardware simplicity, and increased design productivity by avoiding the pitfalls of hybrid system co-design. In addition, developers are no longer required to make difficult system partition decisions based on algorithm, processing speed, timing, and generational silicon considerations. The HyperX approach to development saves time and money by reducing both the bill-of-materials and staff-months of development effort.
