Wipro-NewLogic has been ranked #1 by market share in Leading Analyst Firm’s recently published semiconductor IP survey for Bluetooth and Wireless LAN IP
Lustenau, Austria -- September 13, 2007 -- Wipro-NewLogic, the semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP) business unit of Wipro Technologies, the global IT services arm of Wipro Limited (NYSE:WIT), announced today that it is again been ranked as the #1 supplier of Wireless LAN and Bluetooth IP worldwide according to Gartner, Inc.’s recently published Semiconductor IP Survey(1).
As the leading vendor, Wipro-NewLogic with 61% market share has more than three times the share of its nearest competitor in Wireless LAN. Gartner also rates Wipro-NewLogic as the number one worldwide supplier of Bluetooth based on Design IP revenue commanding 59% market share in 2006.
“We are excited that Gartner has recognized us again as the world leader in WLAN and Bluetooth IPs this year and this is a reinforcement of our leadership in this area. Our BT 2.0 + EDR IP which is software upgradeable to Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR has passed official testing for BT 2.0 + EDR qualification“, said Mana Coste, Director Marketing at Wipro-NewLogic. “We have been seeing good momentum for these two mature wireless technologies, including several wins with customers who asked us to design a complete turnkey solution around the IPs, especially low power ICs. Several of these complete SoCs included the RF on the same die.”
“One trend in wireless IP integration is combo solutions where different wireless technologies co-exist in the same device – especially useful in laptops and smartphones. “We are seeing a lot of demand for combo solutions such as Bluetooth and WLAN, WLAN and WiMAX, WiMAX and Bluetooth and Bluetooth over UWB,” he added.
“We are pleased with the strong customer confidence in the maturity of our IPs. Our unique ability to provide complete solutions for SOC development with RF integration to embedded software, the large investments we have been making to strengthen our IP portfolio and the certification efforts for our IPs , are the key contributors that enabled us to maintain our leadership position.” said Senthil Murugesan, Vice President and CEO of Wipro-NewLogic.” A combination of world class IPs and the Silicon and System design capabilities uniquely positions us to be a key partner for customers looking for turnkey solutions in the wireless connectivity space”
