To Offer a Vertical Design Kit Speeding Adoption of Wireless and Consumer Low-Power Chip Design
Lustenau, Austria -- May 15 , 2007 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), the leader in global electronic-design innovation, has chosen Wipro-NewLogic, the semiconductor IP business unit of Wipro Technologies to license Wipro-NewLogic’s IEEE 802.11 a/b/g MAC and Modem for integration into its Low-Power Methodology Kit. By selecting Wipro-NewLogic technology, Cadence® will offer the Kit with a real-world representative design for 802.11 WLAN-enabled communication SoC solutions.
“Our WLAN IP enables Cadence to demonstrate that their Low-Power Methodology Kit is well suited for the development of complex SoC solutions that address low power wireless applications like VoWLAN and mobile multimedia clients”, said Mana Coste, Marketing Director at Wipro-NewLogic. “Our unique approach of an all-digital radio interface allows for a faster development time since the WLAN block will be free of any analog circuitry such as the ADC/DAC or even the WLAN PLL.”
The Cadence Low-Power Methodology Kit provides a comprehensive solution set specifically targeted at low-power designs. It enables engineers of all experience levels to incorporate advanced low-power techniques into their design while reducing risk, cost and development time. The Low-Power Methodology Kit comes with a wireless segment representative design for a chip that allows customers to go through a real-world example of a low-power chip design, even if Wipro-NewLogic’s IP inside the Kit has been obscured and does not have the full functionality of the production version. The Wipro-NewLogic IP solution not only features low-power operation, but also includes support for the latest Wi-Fi® specifications like WPA2TM and WMM®. Customers can contact Wipro-NewLogic directly for production license information.
“We selected Wipro-NewLogic as supplier for the WLAN IP in our Low-Power Methodology Kit because we wanted a proven and mature solution that fully complies with the IEEE 802.11 a/b/g standards,” said Bruce Jewett, vice president, product marketing, vertical kits at Cadence. “We also value the fact that their expertise covers the whole spectrum of a wireless transceiver: from software to signal processing, digital design as well as RF.”
Wipro-NewLogic is a leading semiconductor design services provider and supplier of Intellectual Property (IP) cores for complex wireless and wireline applications; thanks to its expertise in complex transceivers, its CMOS RF and its design services capabilities, Wipro-NewLogic has become the partner of choice to design digital, RF and mixed signal CMOS SoCs (system-on-chip).
Wipro-NewLogic's IP portfolio includes Wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11), Bluetooth, Ultra WideBand (UWB), FireWire (IEEE1394) and USB. The IP cores consist of software, digital signal processing & algorithms, silicon proven CMOS radios (RF) and mixed-signal blocks such as AFEs, ADC/DACs, PLLs.
Complementing its IP, Wipro's services cover the design cycle of integrated circuits from feasibility studies to digital/analog/RF design, including the development of complete RF-plus-digital SoCs (system-on-chip) up to GDSII. Wipro also has the capability to take a chip design from GDSII to volume production, managing the entire supply chain to deliver packaged ICs to its customers.
