Jade Design Automation


Tools designed for engineers

Streamlining IoT Solutions

Jade Design Automation’s mission is to accelerate the System-on-Chip (SoC) development for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Addressing the key problems of hardware level device security, standard based on-chip buses and the increasing complexity of IP integration that companies need to get right for their IoT devices. We provide scale-able solutions from constrained IoT devices to rich IoT nodes to accelerate the time-to-market and time-to-security for SoC designers. Within the semiconductor industry we are working with blue-chip SoC companies covering the whole process from system architecture to board bring-up as well as design service companies offering system integration or full ASIC solutions and IP companies providing high quality IPs to SoCs.

Register Manager

What does Register Manager do?

Register Manager, the flagship product of Jade Design Automation, efficiently manages all tasks around the HW/SW interface of an SoC. The users can capture register and bitfield information on the IP level as well as the memory maps on the IP, subsystem and SoC level. It generates RTL, Verification, SW, Documentation and Interoperability formats like IP-XACT 1685-2009 and 1685-2014 from these descriptions. On top of the IP-XACT and SystemRDL importers, legacy data in custom formats can be imported via the tool’s API.

Benefits

Register Manager has a rich and intuitive GUI to instantly visualize and edit the HW/SW interface. The tool also has a fully functional shell mode for power users as well as fully scriptable command files for automated flows. Register Manager is IoT ready with out-of-box support for Arm’s TrustZone® technology built on the v8-M architecture on AMBA® based systems. It is lightweight and performant and can capture, validate, generate Verilog, UVM, C-headers and documentation for a IoT SoC in a few seconds.

Who is the tool for?

The tool addresses the requirements of System Architects who can capture the high level design in a top-down approach. It is also a great productivity booster for IP teams who can auto-generate production ready Verilog and UVM register descriptions throughout the development process. System Integrators can use the tool to pull together IPs from various sources to a single platform to increase the quality of the system.
