Application Software

As product and design complexity continue to escalate, so has software complexity. In the high costs to manufacture an IC, software development costs are sometimes overlooked. System-on-a-chip (SoC) embedded software development effort has grown significantly and often dominates the total SoC design effort. When evaluating a processor for your next product line, it is essential to also consider software development costs.

Several factors dramatically influence software development costs: ease of programming, scalability in processor product line, availability of third party developers familiar with the architecture and finally, availability of application software libraries.

VeriSilicon's comprehensive ZView Tools offer the benefits of ease of programming, scalability and a community of experienced third party developers to meet your software development needs.  

ZSP architectureAs is often the case, evolving product needs may increase beyond the capabilities of a component in production. The ability to address the increased performance requirements in a new SoC from the same processor vendor may be difficult if software compatibility is not supported in their products. In these cases, existing software modules may have to be totally rewritten, resulting in high development costs and a potential loss of time-to-market.

ZSP cores are assembly-level software compatible. As a result, ZSP processors enable an easy and quick migration path for system developers.

ZSP audio, voice and wireless software components are licensable, fully-certified software suites, verified on ZSP platforms for the rapid design of next-generation devices. The platforms support all popular voice and audio standards and a rich set of wireless functions for use in devices such as mobile phones, tablets, digital still cameras, digital radio/multimedia broadcast receivers, VoIP terminals, gateways and video conferencing systems. 

The role of support hardware, software and services is critical in enabling customers to quickly and efficiently leverage DSP technology into their products. The success of DSP technology is reliant on a solid infrastructure that includes broad third-party support.

VeriSilicon has partnered with industry-leading technology providers to give you the ZSP technology support necessary to develop competitive products faster than ever and at lower cost than developing the technologies from scratch.

A wide range of application software have been ported and optimized to the ZSP architecture. The complete set of ZSP software has outpaced other DSP processor vendors and continues to grow with the rapid rate of ZSP software development. The availability of these optimized, pre-verified software libraries reduces both development time and cost.

ZSP software components are licensable, fully-certified software suites, verified on ZSP SW and HW based development platforms to enable rapid design of next-generation devices. The software libraries support all popular audio, voice, and wireless needs.
