Tokyo, June 1, 2017 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) after a short hiatus, announces that it will be exhibiting at the upcoming Design Automation Conference DAC www.dac.com, booth #1520 to present its current release of CyberWorkBench®, System LSI Design Environment that includes a behavioral synthesizer, simulator and formal verifier, - Implementing “All-in-C Concept”, for efficient C-based design.
With its recent win providing Faraday Technology Corporation, a major fabless IC vendor in Taiwan, with CyberWorkBench®, NEC has demonstrated its high value to design engineers and manufacturers in advanced chip design markets.
Faraday is utilizing CyberWorkBench® (CWB) to design FPGAs for communication controls. The FPGAs are designed as an ASIC prototype for communication control, with the scope of the product's application scheduled to be extended to an ASIC. Sales of CWB to Faraday were conducted by NEC's partner, Avant Technology Inc.
CWB is an integrated design environment consisting of a high-level synthesis tool, as well as dynamic and static verification capabilities that shorten the design period by automatically converting the Large Scale Integrated Circuit (LSI) functions written in the C language into circuits that satisfy both the circuit size (area) and performance needs. CWB has been used for design control LSI for equipment that requires high reliability such as satellites, communications equipment and backbone servers. Since its launch in 2006, CWB has been introduced internationally to more than 100 companies in the manufacturing industry.
“NEC has been focusing on the Solutions for Society business, and it will contribute to the enhancement of corporate competitiveness by leveraging its experience in providing CWB to Faraday and by increasing the sales of the product to diverse manufacturers involved in LSI design,” said Kazutoshi, Wakabayashi, Ph.D, CyberWorkBench® product manager for NEC Corporation.
“We look forward to re-introducing CyberWorkBench® to the design engineers at the upcoming DAC conference, in June,” said Wakabayashi. “And to celebrate our return to DAC, we will be raffling an Amazon Echo at our booth to potential customers. Come join us!”
