These FPGA technologies deliver productivity and code re-use at the user application layer with a data flow model
optimized for DSP processing and full support for custom VHDL cores as well as customer developed IP.
Enterprise and SaaS offer an improved data flow model
It incorporates an onboard 10GE switch to facilitate very flexible data flow models
and enables powerful packet processing solutions needed for the next generation equipment.
SA/Catalyst consolidates appropriate methods from the System Architect tool set to provide business process hierarchies, logical process hierarchies, relationship maps, process maps, process flow diagrams, business data flow models
, application context diagrams, organization infrastructure models, program flow diagrams, entity relationship as well as matrix input, matrix reporting and other CSC Catalyst requirements in a single tool.
Through strategic partnerships with leading ESL tool suppliers and the release of this significantly enhanced SonicsStudio, Sonics now provides chip architects the ability to define and model their SoC architecture using data flow models
simulated using a range of supported RTL and SystemC simulators in a variety of environments.
Programming with VIP is accomplished by drawing data flow models
in the visual workplace along with placing and connecting nodes.
Each SPE can run a different program, and the internal communications allows programmers to arrange the data flow in different ways using parallel, pipelined or streamed processing data flow models
This expands upon the data flow models
associated with traditional ALM that center on core development artifacts.
