HyperSilicon Becomes Tensilica Prototyping Partner in China

December 9, 2008

The Beijing-based company brings expertise in designing FPGA development boards, which are often used to test new chip designs before producing the chip in silicon.


SANTA CLARA, CA /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- Tensilica Inc. announced that HyperSilicon Co., Ltd., of Beijing, China, has become its newest SOC (system-on-chip) prototyping partner, supporting customers of both the Xtensa customizable processors and the Diamond Standard processor cores in the growing China market. HyperSilicon has particular expertise in designing FPGA development boards, which are often used to test new chip designs before producing the chip in silicon.

"We have seen great interest in Tensilica's dataplane processor cores in China," said Thomas Yan, Vice President of HyperSilicon. "By working together, we can provide cost-effective Altera FPGA–based boards for SOC emulation before silicon production and reduce verification time."

"Many companies prototype their SOC designs before committing them to silicon to make sure they'll work properly in the system," stated Chris Jones, Tensilica's Director of Strategic Alliances. "Hypersilicon's expertise can help these customers."
