Beceem Uses Databahn DDR Controller IP in its Wave 2 WiMAX Chipsets
PALO ALTO, Calif. -- July 9, 2007-- Denali Software, Inc., a world- leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and intellectual property (IP), today announced that Beceem Communications has incorporated its Databahn(TM) DDR memory controller into the first commercially available terminal chipset for the latest Mobile WiMAX standard. Denali's Databahn(TM) DDR controller IP enabled Beceem engineers to achieve optimal system-level performance for its DRAM systems in the design of the 802.16-2005 mobile wireless BCS200 chipset.
"During the design of our BCS200 WiMAX wave 2 chipset, we prioritized performance and time to market," said David Patterson, vice president of Marketing at Beceem. "Denali's DDR controller IP provided an optimal solution for the DDR DRAM subsystem and has allowed us to set the WiMAX speed record with an aggregate UL / DL data rate of over 33 Mbps."
The Databahn product provides a comprehensive infrastructure for configuring, analyzing, and generating the optimal memory controller for any given application. Denali's Databahn DDR memory controllers offer a powerful, multi-port solution with configurable features and functionality to satisfy system performance requirements.
"High-quality IP is key to solving DDR memory system requirements, especially when dealing with WiMAX CPEs, Express cards, USB dongles, laptop PCs, mobile phones and other consumer electronics applications," said Brian Gardner, vice president of IP products for Denali. "With Databahn DDR controllers, we are providing customers with reliable and flexible memory systems that integrate well into the system environment. We also realize the importance to provide a solid roadmap of IP that enables customers to track DDR device economics for an overall IP solution that includes BOM considerations, and we are pleased to be working with Beceem to achieve this."
