SuperH Inc. has selected Avant! Corp.'s SinglePass-SoC design solution to implement its latest microprocessor core, the SH-5.

Earlier this year, SuperH released the SH5-100 series core. Its 32- and 64-bit processor core families are suitable for applications covering digital consumer, automotive, telecommunications, telecoms, and many other products. SuperH will eventually develop all subsequent SuperH cores to the open market, including the development of the SH-6 and SH-7 cores.

The SinglePass-SoC design flow is Avant!' s Milkyway-based, design-closure solution engineered to minimize inconsistencies and translations among design steps, allowing tape-out of designs with fewer iterations and significantly reduced calendar time and designer staff time.

"Because Avant!' s SinglePass-SoC solution is based on the Milkyway common database, there is no need to manipulate large amounts of data at the various design stages, thereby saving time, avoiding errors, and allowing us to achieve a successful sign-off efficiently," Ichiro Naka, integration group manager at SuperH.
