Leading Semiconductor Manufacturer Adopts Denali's Databahn DDR Controller IP to Speed Production of DDR Memory SystemsPALO ALTO, Calif. -- May 29, 2007
-- Denali Software, Inc., a world-leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and intellectual property (IP), today announced that Freescale Semiconductor, Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of embedded semiconductors, has selected Databahn(TM) DDR memory controller IP for global use in a wide range of end product designs. Denali's Databahn controller IP helps Freescale's developers quickly configure high-speed DDR memory systems to meet or exceed customer design requirements in terms of bandwidth, latency and power consumption.
"At Freescale, we needed a solution that would enable us to meet our SoC design requirements in a fast and efficient way while preserving quality," said Raja Tabet, Freescale's director of Solutions and Enablement Technology. "Denali's DDR memory controller IP enables our designers to rapidly address customer design requirements and applications. Denali's memory controller IP used in our chips, helps us to meet our customers' needs for low power consumption, reduced part count, extended battery life and reduced form factors for mobile phones. We look forward to the continual benefits and momentum our chipsets are establishing for major handset manufacturers."
The Databahn product is supported by a comprehensive infrastructure that enables developers to configure, analyze, and generate the optimal memory controller IP for a given customer application. Denali's Databahn DDR memory controllers offer a powerful, multi-port solution with configurable features and functionality to satisfy system performance requirements in terms of bandwidth, latency, and power reduction.
"Freescale supplies industry-leading SoCs to a broad range of markets, and so they require a powerful solution that is very configurable. Their mobile chipsets require state-of-the-art power management features; their cutting- edge communication IC's need blazing performance, and their consumer SoCs must hit very small market windows," said Brian Gardner, vice president of IP products for Denali. "Our Databahn DDR controller is a market-proven solution that meets all these requirements. We are happy to work with Freescale and participate in making their customers successful."About Databahn DDR Memory Solutions
