Codasip Studio is a complete set of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools for processor design and customization. The level of automation is unmatched on the market, and produces fast and efficient results.
Our approach at Codasip is to automate the development of processor cores by using a high-level description in the CodAL processor description language and generating the design implementation, verification environment, virtual system prototype, and a complete software toolchain using Codasip Studio.
In addition to its design capabilities, Codasip Studio includes powerful multiprocessor programming, debugging and profiling features, enabling the development of complex processor designs with ease.
Codasip Studio is built upon open standards and software including Eclipse, LLVM, Verilog, SystemVerilog, and UVM.
- A unified development model describing the processor in a single CodAL description
- High performance processor synthesis
- Complete UVM verification environment
- Advanced profiling and analysis
- Compatible with Codasip Bk RISC-V cores
- By creating a high-level processor description in CodAL and automatically generating virtual prototypes, an SDK, RTL and a verification environment there is hugely reduced design time and cost.
- CodAL allows adding application-specific instructions natively to the processor pipeline well above traditional processor extensible approaches.
- Once an instruction-accurate model of the processor is available it is possible to generate an SDK to allow embedded software teams to develop, debug and test their code well ahead of silicon availability.
- Codasip Studio generates human readable RTL.
- A generated SystemVerilog UVM environment allows verification of the RTL against an instruction accurate reference model.
- Any form of customizing Bk RISC-V cores developed using Studio such as creating custom instructions.
- Creating special processor architectures for specialized applications such as security, DSP, AI or imaging
