Xilinx Inc. has recently unveiled the third member of the Xilinx SDx family of development environments. The SDSoC Development Environment for All Programmable SoCs and MPSoCs claims to allow the broader community of embedded software developers to leverage the power of hardware and software 'all programmable' devices.

According to the company, the SDSoC environment offers a streamlined ASSP-like programming experience including an easy to use Eclipse integrated design environment (IDE) and a comprehensive development platform for heterogeneous Zynq All Programmable SoCs and MPSoCs deployment. Complete with the industry's first C/C++ full-system optimising compiler, SDSoC promises to deliver system level profiling, automated SW acceleration in programmable logic, automated system connectivity generation, and libraries to speed programming. It also enables end user and third party platform developers to rapidly define, integrate and verify system level solutions and enable their end customers with a customised programming environment.

SDSoC Development Environment for All Programmable SoCs and MPSoCs

Used by systems and embedded software engineers, SDSoC provides an Eclipse IDE with C/C++ running on bare metal or operating systems such as Linux and FreeRTOS as its input. SDSoC enables the creation of complete heterogeneous multi-processing systems, including reuse of legacy HDL IP Blocks as C-callable libraries. Unlike traditional separate hardware-centric and software-centric flows, which can result in development delays and uncertainty in system architecture and performance, SDSoC is architected to provide rapid system profiling, SW acceleration in programmable logic, and system architecture exploration in a familiar framework.
