Intel is committed to delivering a complete intellectual property (IP) portfolio, system-level design tools, and a third-party operating system (OS) ecosystem that maximizes designer productivity for industrial applications.
Platform Designer system integration tool is our system-level IP integration tool. The Platform Designer system integration tool is a scriptable system integration tool with a graphical front end that helps you integrate off-the-shelf and custom IP with soft and hard-core processors. The Platform Designer system integration tool supports an AXI* interconnect, tunable for performance and resources that provides seamless clock-crossing and streaming data handshaking. Most importantly, the Platform Designer integration tool provides a seamless integration of the hardware and software development domains, including system mapping between the integrated hardware and embedded software IDE for developing software to target the system.
We have had a long-term partnership with MathWorks, and offer highly optimized HDL generation flows in the Simulink* environment using our DSP Builder for Intel® FPGA blockset. We also provide a Cyclone® V SoC-integrated flow with MathWorks* Simulink design flow that seamlessly integrates the Embedded Coder and HDL Coder generator. Additionally, we are investing heavily in high-level design tools–providing proven leadership with the Intel® HLS Compiler and Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™.
Finally, our partnership with Arm allows us to offer the state-of-the-art Arm* Development Studio 5* (DS-5*) Intel SoC FPGA tool, which offers unparalleled productivity and performance for embedded system design and debug. The tool flow includes integrated support for HPS FPGA cross triggering and visibility of FPGA peripherals from software debug flows. We support all major SoC operating systems from Linux to VxWorks, ucOSII to Integrity, and more.
