Ericsson Wireless Unit Adopts Docea Power ACEplorer to Improve Power Choices

MOIRANS-GRENOBLE, France --(Business Wire)-- Mar 08, 2010 Docea Power, the Electronic System Level (ESL) company that delivers software for early power and thermal analysis, today announced that ST-Ericsson, a world leader in wireless platforms and semiconductors, has adopted and is deploying ACEplorer to improve architectural-level power choices for SoC (System-on-Chip) and platform design.

ACEplorer models and optimizes dynamic power and thermal behavior of whole electronics systems. It integrates a consistent power data management methodology for capturing and simulating power behavior. By separating the architecture from the applications, ACEplorer maximizes models reuse usable across teams and design flows from system level to silicon measurements.

“We are proud that ST-Ericsson adopted ACEplorer tool to tackle power and thermal options for its complex design projects,” said Ghislain Kaiser, co-founder and CEO of Docea Power. “It demonstrates the maturity of our solution for managing efficiently power and thermal issues in demanding sectors like the mobile industry.”

ACEplorer allows several design teams to work in parallel and succeed in formalizing a structured power aspect for every architect and designer. ACEplorer’s communications capabilities –such as reports and diagrams – allow design teams to communicate key results to project leaders and managers.

In less than a few minutes, ACEplorer can deliver precise simulation results for many scenarios and variants so that system designers and architects can choose with more confidence the best options for Intellectual Property (IP), hardware/software partitioning, cost and power consumption.

ACEplorer goes beyond the aspect of pure power. It can take into account information about bandwidth, frequency, CPU load and temperature which is becoming critical issue so design teams can easily find the best system dimensioning.

By separating power/thermal modelling from scenarios, ACEplorer allows design teams to easily reuse standalone models developed for previous projects. Models can be used as a documentation basis for the platform related power characteristics and concepts.

Docea Power is exhibiting at booth #52 at the Design, Automation & Test in Europe conference in Dresden, Germany, March 8 to 12 2010.
