A design and application technology company of Renesas Electronics, Renesas System Design develops ASICs, large-scale integration (LSI) systems, and microcomputers, as well as core technologies for electronics products. Among these core technologies are the advanced image processing and filtering algorithms used in automotive display systems and digital imaging equipment.
To accelerate the design and implementation of image processing intellectual property (IP) core for ASICs, Renesas engineers adopted Model-Based Design with MATLAB® and Simulink®.
“Because the IP core we develop will be used in multiple products, it must be both high-quality and flexible,” says Mamoru Kamiya, senior design engineer at Renesas system Design Company. “Model-Based Design enabled us to achieve these goals by producing a real-time prototype in the early stages of development, systematically exploring design alternatives, and building confidence in our design via extensive simulation of test cases.”
