Grenoble, France, March 3, 2022 Dolphin Design and DEFACTO Technologies today announced that Dolphin Design has adopted DEFACTO’s SoC Compiler 9.0 to increase design automation for low-power SoC integration with complex IP cores. The DEFACTO solution is a proven silicon-based EDA solution that helps large semiconductor companies add automation to their design workflows, primarily at RTL, and improve the integration, verification and approval of IP cores and systems on chips.

Integrating the front-end SoC by jointly managing RTL and UPF is a major design step for our engineers.”, said Alexandre Charvier, head of digital design of IP processing and ASICs at DOLPHIN DESIGN. “Adopting SoC Compiler was an important step for us to improve productivity and reduce engineering costs. The DEFACTO-based methodology of joint management of RTL and other design guarantees such as UPF is key for us. It also significantly shortens the verification process by reducing the iteration time between intermediate and main activities. With DEFACTO’s Soc Compiler 9.0, we have already seen an acceleration of exchanges between all parts of the project.

DOLPHIN DESIGN is not only a customer but a DEFACTO partner. We are very pleased to see the significant benefits that DOLPHIN DESIGN derives from our SoC front-end design solutionsaid Chouki Aktouf Founder and CEO of DEFACTO Technologies. Mr. Aktouf added: “As confirmed with other customers, we are confident that these benefits will be even greater for larger designs and when other warranties are considered in the future.”.

Alexandre Charvier adds: “This partnership offers significant benefits for both companies. For DOLPHIN DESIGN, it is a turnkey solution. With the DEFACTO SoC Compiler 9.0, we improve our methodology on all segments of RTL and UPF projects. As an early access partner, we are also proud to deliver new features to improve the DEFACTO SoC 9.0 compiler.

From a project management point of view, this solution allows the simultaneous execution of Front-End and Middle-End activities with a significant gain for an ASIC SoC project in terms of planning, leading to a reduction in the delivery time of the final product. to our customers.

Meet us at these upcoming events in 2022

DOLPHIN DESIGN exhibited in January at the CES (Consumer Electronic Show) in Las Vegas, NV. During this major technology event, we shared our expertise on how to solve the IoT dilemma, with a focus on energy efficiency and performance. In 2022, you will be able to meet our experts and our teams around our processing and Edge computing solutions for your project at the Tiny ML Summit at the end of March, Embedded Vision Summit in May and Embedded World in June.

DEFACTO Technologies exhibited at the DAC (Design Automation Conference) last December and will also be present at the next DAC in July in San Francisco CA. We will announce our new major release: “SoC Compiler 10.0”. Our experts will be present at our booth and ready to exchange and give live presentations of the SoC Compiler 10.0. The latest features will be showcased in conjunction with customer testimonials including DOLPHIN DESIGN and others.
