SystemRDL Alliance Members

SystemRDL Alliance members share a common goal in promoting the standardized usage of SystemRDL in the development and delivery of intellectual property (IP) products used in system-on-chip (SoC) designs.

The SystemRDL Alliance benefits IP providers and SoC designers by providing a common, computer readable format for describing configuration space registers (CSR's) - a storage element used in all semiconductor chips to hold key parameters that define the operation of the chip.

SystemRDL Alliance Members
Denali Software, Inc. Denali Software Inc. is the world's leading provider of EDA and IP products for deploying standard interfaces in silicon. Denali's Databahn™ IP products provide optimal control and data throughput for DRAM and Flash memory devices. The PureSpec™ and MMAV™ verification IP products support all standard interfaces, including DRAM, Flash, PCI Express, AXI, PLB, USB, Ethernet, SATA, and CE-ATA. Denali's Blueprint product provides a complete solution for design and management of configuration space registers.

"The industry is getting better at recognizing the value of tools and methodologies that span beyond the traditional scope of EDA, to include software, test and documentation. The SystemRDL Alliance supports one such solution, and active participation from experienced IP providers such as Mentor Graphics, MIPS and Rambus is a testament to the value of this program, and makes it easy to deploy across the industry."

Sean Smith, chief verification officer at Denali Software

Mentor Graphics Mentor Graphics Corporation (Nasdaq: MENT) is a world leader in electronic hardware and software design solutions, providing products, consulting services and award-winning support for the world's most successful electronics and semiconductor companies. Established in 1981, the company reported revenues over the last 12 months of about $675 million and employs approximately 3,700 people worldwide.

"We believe the SystemRDL Alliance and its access to Blueprint for IP product development will lessen the burden of IP integration for SoCs, a major factor in post-sales support. The electronic design community should benefit from SystemRDL standardization with easier IP integration and design reuse, cost reduction, and improved product development schedules."

Jim Venable, Mentor Graphics IP Division director of IP products

MIPS Technologies, Inc. MIPS Technologies, Inc. is a leading provider of industry standard processor architectures and cores for digital consumer and business applications. The company drives the broadest architectural alliance that is delivering 32- and 64-bit embedded RISC solutions. The company licenses its intellectual property to semiconductor companies, ASIC developers, and system OEMs. MIPS Technologies, Inc. and its licensees offer the widest range of robust, scalable processors in standard, custom, semi-custom and application-specific products.

"Standardization of register descriptions in our industry is a key requirement, and long overdue, so we are pleased to be part of this leading-edge consortium. "The SystemRDL Alliance provides both a language standard and the ability to convert the definitions to any representations required in the hardware or software design process. By shipping SystemRDL descriptions of processor and system registers with our hardware and software products we simplify the design process and help our customers face the challenges of delivering sophisticated designs to market in minimum time."
