Patent Filed

February 15, 2018

February 15, 2018 | Concertal Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce the filing of an official patent application for their SDA (System Design Automation) solution. This application replaces the provisional patent application Concertal filed last year. The invention enables the rapid design and verification of new SoC (System-on-Chip) devices. As designs continue to become more complex, the invention addresses the growing need for improving lengthy design cycles, out-of-control development costs, and unreasonable market risks in the semiconductor industry.

Other than a common web browser, system developers need no installed software to begin, build, and simulate new SoC designs. Required IP functionality is simply selected and Concertal automatically generates the fully integrated functional design, including test bench and user documentation. Highly flexible, extensible, and configurable designs are ready for system simulation within minutes, rather than months.

Simulation control is realized through a relational database that manages both functional integration characteristics and functional verification test cases. This allows Concertal’s method of SoC development to quickly regenerate an optimized design for the intended collaborative operation of IP in the SoC, completing the front-end design flow before it is handed off to a back-end team.

It is important to Concertal Systems to deliver SDA capability in a way that will provide options for the semiconductor industry to work as a more productive community. It is the team’s goal to enable new devices to be delivered in half the time, with half the resources, at half the total development costs.
