In order to support the advanced and complex processing that is increasingly demanded of LSIs, Renesas Electronics is breaking free from HDL-based design flows to offer programmable LSI solutions.
STP engine (IP core)
Greatly accelerate performance by using reconfigurable processing for applications for which CPU power is insufficient. Unused circuits are folded away so that a large circuit can be mounted on a limited chip area.
Immediate effectiveness! System development using LSIs for specific applications (ASSP)
Decided on an application field, but having trouble deciding on the system? This is where a programmable LSI comes in handy.
XBridge (cross-bridge) has a proven track record with applications such as broadcasting equipment. Our XBridge partners are also ready to help with application development.
Proven track record
Our programmable LSIs are used in a broad range of products, from professional video equipment to digital cameras.
