18 March 2010
Docea Power, the Electronic System Level (ESL) company that delivers software for early power and thermal analysis, today announced that ST-Ericsson, a world leader in wireless platforms and semiconductors, has adopted and is deploying ACEplorer to improve architectural-level power choices for SoC (System-on-Chip) and platform design.
ST-Ericsson chose Docea Power’s ACEplorer for its ability to quickly create hierarchical power models, deliver precise architectural exploration and establish an effective methodology. ACEplorer models and optimizes power and thermal behavior of whole electronics systems. ACEplorer integrates a consistent power data management methodology for capturing and simulating power behavior. Its separation of concerns*(or divide and conquer) approach makes models usable across teams and design flows, from system level to silicon measurements.
ST-Ericsson saw high value in adopting ACEplorer for modeling complex platforms when compared to spreadsheets, especially for their new 3G multimedia platforms
“We are proud that ST-Ericsson adopted ACEplorer tool to tackle power and thermal options for its complex design projects,” said Ghislain Kaiser, co-founder and CEO of Docea Power. “It demonstrates the maturity of our solution for managing efficiently power and thermal issues in demanding sectors like the mobile industry.”
