With over 20 years of research in the EDA area, NEC group has pioneered the development and application of a practical C-based LSI design methodology and tools. The first commercial LSI chip designed with our methodology was shipped in 1993.
Since 2001, the popularity of CyberWorkBench® has grown explosively. CyberWorkBench® has been used in many complicated ASIC/SoC designs, such as network interface circuits for highly dependable servers, high-speed audio/visual signal processors for high-definition TVs and cellular phones, and cryptographic processors.
CyberWorkBench® enables not only a revolutionary reduction in LSI development time and costs; it improves the reliability and quality of the final product. The extensive commercial product development that has gone into CyberWorkBench® can make it an important key to a successful high-tech consumer electronics business that requires a short time-to-market.
