IDEX Biometrics Selects Agnisys IDesignSpec to Aid Development of the Next-Generation ASICs for IoT Security

BOSTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 8, 2019Agnisys, Inc. today announced that IDEX Biometrics® (OSE: IDEX), the leading provider of fingerprint identification technologies has chosen Agnisys IDesignSpec™ software to aid development of the next-generation ASIC devices for IoT security. With a comprehensive list of patents in the areas of biometrics sensing, design and packaging, IDEX aims to deploy fingerprint sensing technology as the future of IoT security.

IDEX Biometrics uses IDesignSpec for designing the register specification from a single specification. IDesignSpec automatically generates the register RTL, UVM models, C Headers, and HTML/PDF documentation needed for the ASIC project.

“Using IDesignSpec in our flow has been extremely beneficial. We were able to start from an Excel spreadsheet description of our memory map and use IDesignSpec to create documentation, software header files, verification widgets and RTL code, all of which were changed at the same time,” said Rick Wanzenried, Digital Design Manager, IDEX Biometrics. “This has saved many engineering hours, as we have been able to flawlessly maintain our design and documentation.”

“IoT is one of the technological mega trends that will have a great impact to our society in the future,” said Anupam Bakshi, Agnisys CEO and Founder. “We look forward to further enhancing IDesignSpec to meet new requirements as IDEX Biometrics helps to prevent and eliminate theft and fraud in IoT.”

About IDesignSpec
IDesignSpec is an award-winning product that helps IP/SoC Design architects and engineers to create executable specification for registers and automatically generate output for SW/HW teams. The specifications can be written in Microsoft® Word™ or Excel™, LibreOffice™ with IDesignSpec editor Plugin or text-based industry standard formats like SystemRDL, RALF, IP-XACT. IDesignSpec captures simple as well as special registers, signals, interrupts, and then generates synthesizable RTL code and interfaces to ARM AMBA® buses like AXI, AHB, APB, AHB3Lite, and other standard and proprietary buses.
