MLDesign Technologies, Inc. is an international company dedicated to improving the effectiveness of the design process all the way from concept to implementation
System-level design is a critical success factor for all companies involved in electronic design and manufacturing. Indeed, companies are investing an increasing percentage of engineering time in system-level design.
The reason? Many experts estimate that 80% of a system's performance and cost is determined by the functional specifications and architecture. It is too risky to begin implementation without optimizing the architecture and functionality.
And significant implementation productivity benefits occur when the hardware and software teams are given executable specifications that contain component-level interfaces and functionality.
But traditional system-level tools aren't of much help, because they are narrowly focused on certain types of functional specifications and don't support architectural design and analysis.
MLDesign Technologies provides a team-oriented platform for Next Generation System Design of networks, systems and systems-on-chip. Unlike traditional tools, our mission-level design approach integrates architectures, functions and missions into a single environment.
For the first time, designers and their teams can make critical design tradeoffs, develop comprehensive specifications, and evaluate proposed changes to the specifications. Easy-to-use tools support the optimization of system performance and cost, while improving quality, reliability and time-to-market.
From a global wireless system to a system-on-chip (SoC), MLDesigner and SatLab deliver significant benefits for systems of any size or complexity.
Key markets for the MLDesign Technologies product family include wireless communications, networking, broadband communications, embedded computing, network processors and system-on-chip.
Significant product capabilities for these markets include performance analysis, network analysis, architectural tradeoffs, mission-level modeling, algorithm and protocol development, and system-level simulation.
MLDesign Technologies has a strong research and development program. The goals of this program are twofold, i) to quickly transfer research results into solutions, and ii) internally develop key technologies that enable an integrated design flow from mission-level to implementation handoff.
MLDesign Technologies is a privately held company headquartered in the heart of Silicon Valley. The company has attracted key talent that were early team members of the successful BONeS, SPW and SatLab point-tools. The first production release of MLDesigner was in November 2000.
