+ - Startup Claims C-code to SoC in 8-16 Weeks->

Submitted by eldavojohn
eldavojohn (898314) writes "Details are really thin but the EE Times is reporting that Algotochip claims to be sitting on the 'Holy Grail' of SoC design. From Algotochip: "We can move your designs from algorithms to chips in as little as eight weeks," said Satish Padmanabhan CTO and founder of Algotochip, whose EDA tool directly implements digital chips from C-algorithms." Padmanabhan is the designer of the first superscalar DSP. His company, interestingly enough, claims to provide a service that consists of a 'suite of software tools that interprets a customers' C-code without their having any knowledge of Algotochp's proprietary technology and tools. The resultant GDSII design, from which an EDA system can produce the file that goes to TSMC, and all of its intellectual property (IP) is owned completely by the customer—with no licenses required from Algotochip.' This was presented at this year's Globalpress Electronics Summit. Too good to be true or can we expect our ANSI C code to be automagically implemented in a SoC in such a short time?"
