Synopsys expands its RISC-V processor IP portfolio for IoT applications

Synopsys has unveiled a new series of RISC-V processor IP known as ARC-V, available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The upgrade aims to give designers the flexibility to choose the processor that best aligns with their specific application needs in terms of power efficiency and performance.

Additionally, Synopsys has introduced an AI-driven Electronic Design Automation (EDA) suite that integrates with the ARC-V processor IP, offering a development and verification environment.

Synopsys has a track record in developing RISC-V based commercial processor IPs. With the introduction of ARC-V, the company extends its proficiency in processor IP solutions that adds scalability, catering to a range of applications, including automotive, storage, consumer electronics, and IoT.

The company says that the ARC-V IP provides configurability, equipping developers to customize their System-on-Chips (SoCs) to achieve the optimal balance between power efficiency, performance, and chip area.

“Synopsys ARC-V Processor IP, combined with the company’s co-optimized EDA and verification solutions, contribute to greater flexibility and choice in the RISC-V ecosystem for the benefit of chip design across industries,” says Calista Redmon, chief executive officer at RISC-V International.

In the context of functional safety features, Synopsys has introduced the ARC-V Functional Safety Processor IP. The IP incorporates integrated hardware safety functionalities, designed to detect system errors, support different safety levels, and accelerate adherence to safety standards such as ISO 26262 and ISO 21434. Synopsys says that this processor IP is based on their ISO 9001-certified quality management system.

“By developing safety-certified RISC-V based processor IP, Synopsys is supporting us to expand the architecture choices with an open standard to build high-performance automotive systems with the highest levels of functional safety, and we look forward to continuing to partner with them in our future products,” says Thomas Boehm, senior vice president, Automotive Microcontroller at Infineon.

Synopsys.ai, an AI-powered design and verification suite, spans the entire spectrum of processes, ranging from system architecture to manufacturing, the company claims. AI algorithms are used to enhance the optimization of trade-offs between power, performance, and area, thus improving time-to-market. Additionally, the company offers a cloud-based SaaS platform that allows browser-based access to EDA licenses.

In other RISC-V-related news, Imperas Software has made the decision to add the Tenstorrent Ascalon processor into its RISC-V model library for software simulation.
