COLORADO SPRINGS , CO , September 12, 2006 — Aeroflex Colorado Springs, (NASDAQ:ARXX), announced an agreement with Gaisler Research AB of Gothenburg, Sweden to license Gaisler’s GRLIB IP Library for use in Aeroflex’s future RadHard standard products.
“Aeroflex is very excited about the opportunity to incorporate Gaisler’s GRLIB IP libraries into our future RadHard standard products,” said Anthony Jordan, director-standard products. “ The GRLIB IP Library is an integrated set of reusable IP cores, designed for system-on-chip (SOC) development. The IP cores are centered around the common on-chip bus, and use a coherent method for simulation and synthesis. The library is vendor independent, with support for different CAD tools and target technologies. A unique plug and play method is used to configure and connect the IP cores without the need to modify any global resources.”
Based around the AMBA bus standard, the GRLIB IP library contains advanced high-quality cores such as the LEON LEON 3 Family of SPARC processor s, a fully pipelined double-precision IEEE-754 floating point unit, a 32-bit Master/Target PCI core with DMA and FIFOs, PC133 SDRAM controller, Spacewire Codec with RMAP support, 10/100 Mbit ethernet MAC, timers, UARTS, VGA controller, PS/2 keyboard/mouse interface, interrupt control, GPIO , AES-128 cryptography and many more .
“Aeroflex’s customers need RadHard products that incorporate high-quality cores for their RadHard processors and cPCI development boards,” continued Jordan. “Gaisler Research is a world leader in this field; the choice to center future products around their IP cores was obvious.”
Future Aeroflex products include the a 32-bit RadHard LEON3 processor with cPCI development boards.
