1 min read

Synopsys, Inc. has announced a portfolio of IP optimised to address the security, wireless connectivity, energy efficient and sensor processing requirements for a range of IoT applications such as wearables, smart appliances, metering and wireless sensor networks.

The DesignWare IP portfolio for the IoT includes power and area efficient logic libraries, memory compilers, non volatile memory, data converters, wired and wireless interface IP, security IP, ultra low power processor cores and an integrated sensor and control IP subsystem.

Synopsys provides a suite of commercial and open source tools and software to accelerate the development of ARC based embedded systems for the IoT. This includes Synopsys’ MetaWare Development Toolkit and MQX RTOS, as well as support for the GNU toolchain and Linux kernel.

The embARC Open Software Platform gives ARC software developers online access to a comprehensive suite of free and open source software used to develop IoT applications such as MQTT, CoAP, FreeRTOS and Contiki OS. It also provides documentation and a forum based community where developers can share resources, expertise and code to speed deployment of ARC processor based embedded systems.

Synopsys also partners with embedded hardware and software vendors to provide developers with commercial tools, drivers, operating systems and middleware through the ARC Access Program.

“As the IoT market continues to evolve, designers are faced with the challenge of addressing the security, wireless connectivity, cost constraints, and energy efficiency needed for intelligent devices that are at the heart of IoT products,” said John Koeter, vice president of marketing for IP and prototyping at Synopsys. “By providing the industry’s most comprehensive IP portfolio specifically architected for the IoT with supporting software, tools and ecosystem, Synopsys helps developers achieve their design goals and differentiate in this fast growing market.”
