BANGALORE, INDIA: Tensilica, Inc. announced that it has tested optimized C source code from Tata Elxsi's extensive DSP (digital signal processing) software library and the existing code -- including code optimized with industry standard C intrinsics -- ran flawlessly on Tensilica's new ConnX D2 DSP engine (announced August 24, 2009).
This means that designers can rely on Tata Elxsi's proven software services to quickly get new ConnX D2-based SOCs (system on chips) designed into innovative new products.
"We feel many designers will be attracted to Tensilica's new ConnX D2 DSP because it is faster and smaller in size, plus the outstanding programming environment and compiler suite means that standard C code compiles efficiently. Even existing code utilizing C and platform specific intrinsics for other leading architectures compiles and runs efficiently with no need for additional modification in the code structure," stated Nitin Pai, vice president of marketing, Tata Elxsi.
