First Pass Success ASIC Turnkey Solution with Embedded ZSP400 and VoIP Software
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Aug. 8, 2006 -- VeriSilicon, a leading world class ASIC design foundry and semiconductor IP provider focusing on design and manufacturing services for customers worldwide, today announced that SyChip's Voice over WLAN module for dual-mode cellular and VoWiFi phones is based on ASIC solution developed in partnership with VeriSilicon.
VeriSilicon has developed the complete ASIC from initial specification to volume delivery of finished production units, achieving first time silicon success. VeriSilicon's ZSP, a family of leading digital signal processing (DSP) cores, along with mixed-signal IPs such as audio codec makes it the leading choice for customers developing silicon for VoIP, multimedia and wireless applications. VeriSilicon's software solution, such as Z.Voice for VoIP applications, makes it the vendor of choice for voice applications.
"VeriSilicon's exceptional execution, combined with their IP has enabled SyChip to get its SyVoice(TM) solution to market in less than eight months. Their low power libraries and mixed signal IPs have allowed us to develop a very competitive product for Voice over WLAN applications in the mobile space," said George Barber, CEO of SyChip, a subsidiary of Murata. "VeriSilicon's total capability as one-stop shop including all silicon production logistics has significantly reduced our total cost of ownership."
"Achieving short time to market for differentiated products has become a key factor for success in today's highly competitive environment. VeriSilicon is helping customers to meet this challenge while lowering their cost barriers for complex SoC development and production. We are very impressed by the system knowledge of SyChip team and are delighted to meet and exceed their expectations with our turnkey ASIC services," said Dr. Wayne Dai, chairman, president, and CEO of VeriSilicon.
