Sondrel & UltraSoC partner to deliver ‘shift left’ for SoC projects
UltraSoC and Sondrel has announced Sondrel’s accreditation as an UltraSoC Design Services Partner. This partnership brings together UltraSoC’s monitoring and analytics IP and Sondrel’s engineering expertise, a perfect marriage that further enhances the key ‘shift left’ strategy that both companies advocate to provide significant gains for their clients.
The UltraSoC IP provides a holistic system level view of the complex behaviors within today’s SoCs that helps engineers develop and optimise SoC hardware and software in the lab and in-field. By turning on-chip data into actionable information, UltraSoC’s IP improves product quality and de-risks the entire development process.
The flexibility and diversity of this IP is also a key asset to Sondrel, adding value across the diverse range of design projects that it carries out for customers. From the debug and validation of complex SoCs to the provision of system-level security functionality in IoT ICs, many customers can benefit from the implementation of this IP, finding cost savings on engineering time, performance enhancements or earlier to market gains that can translate into savings or ROI of several million dollars.
Kevin Steptoe, Sondrel Engineering VP, commented: “We are always looking to improve performance margins for our customers, whilst maintaining the quality and reliability of a design. Sondrel and UltraSoC understand the significance of this, as chip design continues to grow in complexity. In implementing this IP, it has the capability of not only maintaining reliability, but monitoring and improving it.”
