Semiconductor & EDA
XMOS provides a new type of programmable component, Software Defined Silicon (SDS), based on an array of high-performance, event-driven processors. Designs are created in high-level languages, delivering hardware performance from a software-based design flow. XMOS devices blend a high-performance processor architecture with a highly responsive I/O structure to provide designers custom silicon that they can use to solve a broad class of design problems. We have shipped more than 300 development kits with the four-core XS1-G4 device, which supports 32 concurrent real-time tasks and services 400M events/second. Our development kits accelerate design as they offer a complete hardware/software environment with no need to build test boards or evaluation hardware. Supporting web and desktop design tools are available to users free of charge.
