Silexica announces latest major release of SLX
San Jose, CA – March 28, 2018 – Silexica has released the fifth version of the leading programming technology SLX with version 2018.3. After six months of intensive development, SLX has been enhanced with over 200 improvements including an industry first in Autosar Memory Mapping, AMALTHEA compatibility and modelling of new platforms from Kalray and Renesas.
Autosar Memory Mapping addresses memory locality issues when migrating from a single to multicore platform. Based on the analyzed variable accesses and the generated multicore schedule, SLX maps variables to the selected platform’s memories efficiently. This solves a major problem for developers by reducing cross core communication. The approach is compatible with the AUTOSAR MemMap feature and enables automatic generation of configuration files and 3rd party code generation.
SLX for the first time now supports the open source AMALTHEA model. This unifies data exchange in cross-organizational projects on embedded multicore systems. The platform enables the creation and management of complex tool chains including simulation and validation. This will support SLX’s use in multi-partner automotive projects.
Further improvements include the modelling of new Kalray and Renesas platforms to expand the selection of platforms modelled. This allows the full use of the Analyze, Optimize and Implement features for these platforms. While the SLX Dataflow Solution now includes support for so-called TaskGraphs. Based on TaskGraphs, the user can model the application and perform mapping analysis and optimization without having to provide or import source code into SLX. This leads to faster turnaround times and opens up the SLX Dataflow ecosystem to a broader range of applications
