IP Technology for Developing Embedded Systems
PrismTech announced its integrated circuit ORB (ICO), an IP core that provides standards-based CORBA protocol messaging for FPGA logic blocks. It provides communications to application components implemented in hardware devices such as FPGAs, ASICs and CPLDs without the use of resource-sapping proxies, a soft-core GPP or any other hardware abstraction layer necessary to facilitate integration. It delivers an optimal gain in the performance and efficiency of data exchange within a multi-processor embedded system as well as an easier development interface. This technology is available as a COTS product as part of the OpenFusion embedded middleware and Spectra SDR product families.
