CoWare Adds MIPS32(R) 34K(TM) Processor Support Package to SystemC-based Model Library; Expansion of CoWare Model Library Enables Development of Optimal Architectures for MIPS32 34K-based Systems.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- CoWare(R) Inc., the leading supplier of electronic system-level (ESL) design software and services, announced CoWare Model Library support for the MIPS32(R) 34K(TM) core family - new processor cores launched today in a separate announcement from MIPS Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIPS).

Integration of the new processor model into CoWare's ConvergenSC SystemC-based environment for platform-driven ESL design enables users and prospective users of the MIPS32 34K cores to assess and optimize their capabilities on system performance, at an early stage of design. Designers can readily combine the MIPS32 34K model with other elements of the CoWare Model Library, such as AMBA or OCP-IP-compliant on-chip interconnects, and peripheral models, to create a SystemC transaction-level model of the complete platform, months ahead of the availability of a hardware prototype. Designers can also run real software on the platform model and simulate at speeds fast enough to analyze overall system performance and assess the impact of the 34K cores' innovative capabilities such as Multi-threading (MT) and DSP functions.

"Design at the electronic system level is critical to gaining full advantage of the 34K cores' powerful capabilities in a product platform," stated Jack Browne, Vice President of Marketing, MIPS Technologies. "We're excited that our collaboration with CoWare provides our mutual customers with a tool environment to help make these architectural decisions earlier in the design cycle."

"As designers strive to manage complexity of both hardware and software in converging applications, they are increasingly turning to both ESL design, and to innovative new embedded processors such as the 34K core family," said A.K. Kalekos, vice president marketing and business development, CoWare. "We have a strong relationship with MIPS Technologies, and we're delighted to expand our modeling solution for platform-driven ESL design to benefit our mutual customers."


The MIPS32 34K Processor Support Package is a new addition to the CoWare Model Library and is available today.
