Expanded agreement enables Ammos to offer complete RealView development tools portfolio
BANGALORE, INDIA AND CAMBRIDGE, UK— September 26, 2006 — Ammos Software Technologies and ARM today announced that Ammos will represent the award-winning ARM® RealView® CREATE family of electronic system level (ESL ) tools to the Indian engineering community. Ammos, a technology implementation company headquartered in Bangalore, is expanding the portfolio of ARM RealView development tools to its customers, providing local design engineers with a complete environment for developing and validating ARM technology-based systems designs.
The ARM RealView CREATE family of design tools uses ESL technology to create a virtual prototype of processor cores and complete system-on-chip (SoC) designs. SoC hardware architecture and software are tested extensively in the pre-silicon phase, enabling design engineers to achieve enhanced end product quality. The RealView CREATE family includes the recently launched System Generator tool, which enables fast, hardware-accurate virtual prototypes for real-time system interaction, as well as RealView SoC Designer, RealView Core Generator and RealView Model Library. ARM’s integrated suite of ESL tools recently received the “Best of Show Award DAC SF 2006” from Venture Development Corporation (VDC), a market research and strategy firm based in Natick, Massachusetts.
“The ability to prototype and test SoCs early in the design cycle can help accelerate time to market, with significant cost savings over the long term,” said Syed Ajazul Huq, CMD and CEO, Ammos Software Technologies. “RealView CREATE ESL tools from ARM will make it possible for our customers in the rapidly growing SoC and embedded systems market in India to deliver reliable, highly differentiated products in a very competitive timeframe.”
The market opportunity for ESL tools in India is significant. A recent study by the India Semiconductor Association (ISA) and Frost & Sullivan predicts that the semiconductor and embedded design market in India will grow 13-fold from $3.25 billion in 2005 to $43.07 billion by 2015.
“Embedded systems are a key driver of growth for the semiconductor design market in India. With its strengths in embedded solutions and VLSI Design, Ammos is well positioned to offer end-to-end tools within the design flow,” said Atul Arora, president, Commercial Operations, ARM India. “This expanded agreement builds on Ammos’ success in delivering solutions with the RealView DEVELOP family of tools, enabling Ammos to offer its customers the entire range of RealView solutions for system design through end product deployment.”
