Ingenic Semiconductor has its own ultra low power CPU technology XBurst. XBurst adopts an innovative pipeline engine which can emit instructions with very little power consumption. The performance, silicon area and power consumption of XBurst outperforms most of the existent industry embedded CPU cores.
XBurst based JZ47XX series SOC product has the best-inclass performance and price ratio. It has penetrated into e-dictionary, PMP, eBook and Tablet market quickly since its inception at 2007 and shipped more than 30M unit since then XBurst provide a unique solution for embedded and mobile market.
Using S2C’s rapid SoC prototyping solutions, Ingenic was able to verify its logic implementation and optimize its 32-bit CPU project development process. Ingenic must always keep up with the challanges of an ever changing consumer market while speeding up product development cycles and reducing time to market. At the same time, under these dynamic market condidtions, they must make sure that the product is sufficiently validatd.
"By utilizing S2C's rapid SoC prototyping solutions, we can put more and more logic into the FPGA for verification. In the past, we only put parts of the design into the FPGA. This time, we were able to put so much more logic into the Dual Prodigy LM Stratix IV FPGA prototype boards. Since there was more logic in the FPGA prototype, it did take some additional times at the beginning of the project. Within the S2C's AE team's help, now we can verify the whole design in the FPGA prototype. What's more, this will save lots of time in the following project." Said Yan Xiaojing.
"The capacity and flexibility are really excellent, enabling us to put nearly the whole design into the Prodigy LM. We can not only develop the drivers before the tape-out, but also develop the multi-media applications during tape-out, thus greatly improving our overall efficiency.” Said Yan Xiaojing.
FPGA prototyping board capacity limitations were eliminated with S2C's rapid SoC prototyping solutions providing single, dual and quad Xilinx & Altera FPGA prototyping boards
Ingenic saved development time because of S2C's efficient Prodigy Logic Module FPGA board design & development cycle and S2C's broad array of flexible motherboards and daughter boards
S2C's pre- and post-sales support helped Ingenic quickly build their FPGA verification environment
Using S2C's rapid SoC prototyping solutions, Ingenic can reliably set up a XBurst SoC prototyping implementation in only one or two days rather than weeks or months.
"Now our design occupied about 80% resources of the latest Dual Prodigy S4 Logic Modules. The high capacity helps us to fully verify the design.” Said Yan Xiaojing. "We can focus on the innovation of the 32-bit CPU and multi-media applications instead of having to build our own prototype environment. S2C's solutions and support really reduce the design cycles and risks. We can get to market earlier. The logic will grow more and more complex and powerful in the future. We are looking forward to building the long-term cooperation with S2C, and utilize the Quad S4 820 TAI LM, the S4 Prodigy Logic Module and co-simulation on our future projects.”
