A joint venture between STMicroelectronics and Cadence Design Systems is to offer a full range of SoC design services and develop application platform solutions for customers using the MIPS32 4Kc and MIPS64 5Kc cores. Accent joins seven other companies that, over the past year, have become authorised design services firms providing SoC and system design expertise using MIPS-based technologies. Accent, a leading European design services firm, with more than 100 design engineers, has expertise in wired and wireless telecommunications, industrial controls, multimedia and home automation and automotive infotainment applications.

In addition to offering a full range of SoC design services, Accent will develop a variety of application platform solutions, such as a multimedia processor for GSM communication and GPRS.

"Today's increasingly complex SoC designs, particularly in telecommunications and multimedia, when coupled with rapidly evolving silicon technology, have created a compelling need for design outsourcing and for the application platform solutions we provide.

Accent will help MIPS Technologies customers get the most out of their processor cores and deliver their products to market faster", said Massimo Vanzi, general manager of Accent.

"By leveraging high-performance MIPS Technologies cores and our proven design expertise, we will give our mutual customers the best solutions for their wireless and multimedia applications".

"Accent is one of the largest electronic design centres in Europe, with world-class service, quality and design expertise that will help maximise value to our customers on a global basis by enabling them to realise significant productivity and time-to-market benefits with their SoC designs", said Kevin Meyer, vice president of marketing at MIPS Technologies.
