Carbon Design expands partnership with Cadence

Carbon Design Systems said it has expanded its partnership agreement with Cadence Design Systems (NASDAQ: CDNS) for intellectual property and system model creation.

“Our relationship with Carbon enables rapid IP adoption,” states Martin Lund, Cadence´s senior vice president, IP Group. “Getting our IP integrated more easily into complex system-on-chip designs is a win for design teams because it can further accelerate their time to market. Carbon´s accurate virtual prototype models and systems is the means in which to do so.”

As part of the agreement, Cadence and Carbon agreed to make all of Cadence´s design IP models available on the Carbon IP Exchange web portal. The two companies plan to collaborate to produce additional Carbon performance analysis kits featuring Cadence IP. These models and CPAKs are intended to accelerate availability of accurate virtual prototypes for architectural analysis, performance optimizations and pre-silicon firmware development.

Carbon Design Systems offers the industry´s only unified virtual prototype solution along with the only solution for accurate IP model creation. The company´s website is at
