Software Development Tools

Today's System-on-a-Chip (SoC) designers face numerous design challenges. Reduced time-to-market force DSP-based designers to wrestle with increased functionality, verification and testing all on a condensed timetable.

Not only do ZSP processors provide the easiest instruction set and programming model available for a DSP, VeriSilicon offers industry standard tools and development kits to help minimize those development challenges.

ZView is the Software Development Tools package for ZSP processor family. ZView is a full-feature, easy-to-use suite of tools consisting of an IDE, compiler, assembler, linker, debugger, simulators, and profiling utilities supported on Windows 2000/NT/XP, Solaris 2.x and Linux platforms. ZView incorporates a number of significant new product enhancements and tools to accelerate software development.


ZSP Reference Silicon incorporates the ZSP subsystem along with other system peripherals to enable a platform that could help customers build prototypes and validate their own SoC designs. The reference silicon is also available bundled with an evaluation board to provide a high speed development platform.

Development boards are an important part of the ZSP support infrastructure enabling real-time customer demonstrations and evaluations, software development and prototyping. There are boards available to meet the distinct needs of SoC and application developers.

JTAG emulator probes offer programmers high speed connectivity to ZSP based hardware to develop and debug applications. The ZSP-USB-JTAG probe is a compact and portable and integrates with ZView tools on any of the supported platforms.
