As a result, Ericsson required a compiler development platform that was not only oriented towards the needs of DSP, but also one that could generate highly efficient optimising compilers for high level languages.
Its open CoSy compiler development platform gives compiler developers the ability to achieve a similar leading edge position in the construction of better and faster optimising compilers for architectures ranging from 4-bit DSPs to 256-bit VLIW processors.
