Cadence compiler helps shorten development time

Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) reported that Renesas Electronics Corp. shortened its design and verification time by 70 percent by utilizing Cadence C-to-Silicon Compiler to develop high efficiency video coding (HEVC) intellectual property, targeting consumer 4K video devices.

This enabled the company to offer their customers IP supporting this next-generation video codec.

Renesas established its own coding style and reduced code size by almost half with SystemC to create the HEVC IP at a high level of abstraction. This enabled verification times that were six times faster than register-transfer level (RTL).

Cadence enables global electronic design innovation and plays an essential role in the creation of today´s integrated circuits and electronics. More information about the company, its products, and services is available at
