Scaleo chip to increase the attractiveness of its offer thanks to the integration of Wipro-NewLogic's BOOSTTM Bluetooth technology Sophia Antipolis, France -- June 29, 2006 --
Scaleo chip, formerly Europe Technologies, the recognized specialist in ARM-based Systems on Chips (SoC), is reinforcing its mastery of multicore integration with the signature of a technological partnership agreement with Wipro-NewLogic, a supplier of IP blocks, in particular those operating on communication technologies such as Bluetooth and WiFi.
”The CMOS Bluetooth integrated circuits (IC’s) currently available on the market show that Bluetooth technology can now be easily integrated in an SoC. The alliance of Scaleo chip’s integration technology and Wipro-NewLogic’s Bluetooth IP will accelerate this trend by reducing integration costs and time to market” says Franz Dugand, Bluetooth technology Marketing Manager for Wipro-NewLogic.
Scaleo chip, thanks to its methodology and its integration tools, allows optimal use of Wipro-NewLogic’s Bluetooth technology, offering customers a competitive solution that integrates Bluetooth functions. The markets concerned are those of PDAs, multimedia laptops and audio applications.
“We are proud of the signature of this partnership with Wipro-NewLogic”, declared Gilles Marsigné, Scaleo chip’s VP for Sales and Marketing. “This agreement will allow Scaleo chip to lengthen its technological lead in the multimedia and communications segments, and to develop its customers portfolio. This agreement will allow users to integrate on a single SoC what is currently only available on multiple circuits. The benefit for our customers is that they can obtain a particularly competitive solution in terms of cost, power consumption and size”.
Scaleo chip hopes to meet the needs of the market for the development and series production of complex and multiprocessor custom SoC products. The originality of its offer lies in the production of the first silicon in a particularly short time frame thanks to the supply of powerful real-time evaluation tools for new architectures (FCM3), and in a hierarchical systems approach (Top-Down).
