Beat The Squeeze!

Cell Phone

Your customers are demanding greater performance and increased functionality in smaller form factors. Software enablers such as embedded Java and web servers require additional resources while providing the rich capability that consumers are so hungry for. Faster processors require more power. Smaller form factor means less on-board battery volume. Market windows are shrinking requiring faster time-to-market. The squeeze is on.

By providing you with the tools you need to quickly evaluate design ideas and new technologies, Foresight enables you to meet these challenges and "beat the squeeze."

Digital Camera SOC Design

Multimedia SOC Design: By modeling and simulating a digital camera chip in Foresight, the SOC designer was able to eliminate two unnecessary RAM buffers.

Result: Reduced die size resulted in over hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings.
