Phystream is a world leading IP provider of System on a Programmable Chip solutions. Whilst software is flexible, extensible and rapid to develop, performance can be a limiting factor to its application. Hardware can provide greater processing power, at the expense of increased development time. For a wide range of applications, a mix of hardware and software can provide the optimum solution. The challenge is to integrate these two sub-systems without degrading the performance, or extending the development cycle. Phystream offers a solution with phyCore, a hardware real-time operating system. A phyCore-based system can be applied to a wide range of data processing and control functions, such as packet classification and forwarding, network-interworking, media coding, indeed anywhere that requires software to interact with a dataflow. Phystream supports customer developments through the provision of the phyCore simulator, a high-level co-development platform. In addition, Phystream supplies standard interface peripherals and application software.
