Silexica expands multi-core programming tools with automotive support

At this year’s Embedded World (March 13 to 16), Silexica will demonstrate its multi-core vision programming tools (Stand Hall 4 – 358).

The multi-core software design automation company has expanded its SLX Tool Suite to include programming support for multi-core automotive applications. The tools are currently in evaluation with early access customers and will be available for general release in Q2 2017.

The SLX Tool Suite has been extended to support automotive hardware/software system architects and designers. Silexica claims that the tools increase efficiency in risk analysis, programming and code distribution. Features include automatic parallelism extraction from legacy code, automatic distribution to heterogeneous platforms, and faster software/hardware design space explorations for future products.

The company will demonstrate its SLX Tool Suite as applied to Intel/Altera FPGA-based programmable SoCs, where an embedded vision software application is automatically synthesised for, and mapped to, a multi-ARM, multi-Nios II FPGA design.

In January 2017, Silexica joined the Automotive Open System Architecture (AUTOSAR), the partnership of vehicle manufacturers, suppliers and other companies from the electronics, semiconductor and software industry.

Silexica also participates in the ARAMiS II Project, a large-scale research project with a goal to create tools, methodologies, infrastructure and solutions for structured multi-core development. Silexica is leading the work package “Multicore Tools: Parallelization.”

Silexica has provided software design automation tools since 2014. Its SLX Tool Suite helps software developers and hardware and software system architects to efficiently design and program multi-core and many-core systems.
