Xilinx Inc. announced that it has acquired AccelChip Inc., one of the leading providers of MATLAB synthesis software tools for building digital signal processing (DSP) systems.

The AccelChip DSP Synthesis tools and DSP library of algorithmic intellectual property (IP) will be offered as part of Xilinx's XtremeDSP solutions that include the System Generator for DSP design tools, rich DSP libraries and reference designs.

According to Xilinx, this unique combination of DSP technologies enables thousands of DSP algorithm and system designers who use MATLAB and Simulink to create high-performance systems using Xilinx reconfigurable DSPs.

"AccelChip provides an excellent strategic fit with our existing DSP products and roadmaps," said Omid Tahernia, VP and GM for Xilinx's DSP Division. "The combination of AccelChip and Xilinx System Generator will help accelerate delivery and adoption of our robust, application-optimized solutions by many more DSP developers."

Vin Ratford, president and CEO of AccelChip, added, "The merging of our tools and libraries of DSP algorithms will provide a world-class platform for a host of new DSP applications, and will create new design wins for Xilinx reconfigurable DSP silicon."
