SPEED - A platform embedding power management and processing solutions for fast, safe, energy efficient chip design

SPEED delivers a standardised, automated and silicon validated turnkey solution for power-network architecture, design and implementation of energy-efficient 'System on a Chip' (SoC) serving next-generation products.

Integrated Circuit designers need to integrate, sequence, and control an ever-increasing number of functionalities in their end product while ensuring maximum data processing performance with minimum energy consumption. Managing highly complex SoCs and low-power schemes integrating smart power management and processing capabilities requires a wide technical expertise, from architecture to design, which can drastically slow-down the conventional design cycle and increase the risk of silicon failure. SPEED turns this expertise into differentiating solutions, enabling configurable and energy-efficient 'Application-Specific Integrated Circuit' (ASIC) design. Based on its power management, processing, and audio platforms, SPEED can deliver significant energy efficiency improvements compared to the mainstream alternative.
