IP Cores from IPextreme Support Mentor Graphics’ Precision® Synthesis FPGA Tool

IP cores now validated for Precision logic and physical synthesis flow

Silicon Valley, CA –  December 19, 2008 –– IPextreme®, Inc., the company bringing famous IP (intellectual property) to system-on-chip designers worldwide, has validated its Multi-CAN Controller, its CJTAG-IEEE1149.7 IP cores and its 32-bit Power Architecture e200, V1 ColdFire, V2 ColdFire, 16-bit CR16CP and 8-bit HCS08 processor coresfor use with Mentor Graphics Precision® Synthesis flow. Designers can now use the advanced features of Precision Synthesis to quickly and easily achieve superior results when integrating IPextreme cores into FPGAs.

“IPextreme has a large catalog of silicon-proven, synthesizable FPGA cores,” said Daniel Platzker, product line director of FPGA synthesis at Mentor Graphics.   “Mentor delivers a comprehensive, vendor-independent FPGA design flow, and compatibility between Precision Synthesis and the IPextreme cores ensures success for mutual customers.”

“We work closely with Mentor to confirm the compatibility of our IP with their EDA tools,” said Rick Tomihiro, vice president of marketing for IPextreme. “Not only is our IP validated on the Precision Synthesis tool, but also our XPack IP packaging, distribution, configuration and support technology automatically generates configuration and constraints files for Precision Synthesis, which delivers excellent results for FPGA designers.”

All validated cores are available today, through the IPextreme Core Store® (http://www.ip-extreme.com/corestore/) or by contacting the company at www.ip-extreme.com.
