Cradle Technologies Presenting on Software Panel for Multicore Designs

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 20, 2006 -- Cradle Technologies, a fabless semiconductor company providing Multicore DSPs (MDSPs) for video and imaging systems, will participate on the panel titled "Silicon without software is just sand" at the Multicore Expo in Santa Clara, CA. The company will present its approach for developing embedded MDSP tools for multimedia applications.

Who: Cradle Technologies, Polycore, Altera, IBM, Imperas, Texas Instruments

What: Panel Discussion: "Silicon without software is just sand." Although voiced a few years ago about application software, this phrase also applies to development software for embedded multicore systems. Designing a viable multicore silicon architecture is one thing -- creating an efficient development environment for it is quite another.

To meet industry demand for powerful and flexible video processing systems, Cradle has developed Multicore DSP products that combine performance, programmability, and pricing to address products in a cost-effective way. Cradle's advanced development tools enable system manufacturers to leverage the programmability and compute power of Cradle's MDSPs and to further differentiate their products by adding their own DSP or application-level programs.

When: Thursday, March 23, 2006, at 3:30 PM

Where: Multicore Expo, Santa Clara Convention Center, CA
