ASIC Architect strengthens its position in DDR Controller for high-end ASIC and SoC market.
Santa Clara, CA -- Apr. 28, 2008 -- ASIC Architect, Inc. today announced the availability of Multi-Port Intelligent Arbiter and Scheduler (MPIAS) with optional AMBA 3 AXI or AMBA 2 AHB Interface for it successful DDR Controller Cores. This follows the footsteps of company’s highly successful industry-leading controllers in the area of PCI Express, DDR and SATA.
ASIC Architect is high-speed controller solutions company, focused on ASIC/SoC. The company’s portfolio of high end products includes PCI Express, DDR and SATA Controller cores. The core products, when combined with bridge products like AMBA bridges, provide a powerful system level solution for customers.
The MPIAS is an optional add-on product that can be added to the standard offering of single port DDR Controller core. This product is configurable up to 16 DDR ports, and each of these ports can either be a generic interface or AMBA AHB/AMBA AXI interface. The user programmable features help the customer to control or allocate the bandwidth across agents. The factors that decide on the winner in this intelligent arbitration and scheduling scheme are priority, credit (QOS), bank and aging. In a complex SoC system, there can be one DDR controller being shared across multiple memory subsystems. The MPIAS serves the requirements of individual agents, and at the same time operates to achieve maximum DDR bandwidth.
"We continue to have focused growth to serve our high-end ASIC/SoC customers. The MPIAS is an important addition to our existing product portfolio. It is a requirement for today’s complex SoC to have guaranteed DDR Controller bandwidth," says Kishore Mishra
The product is available immediately for current and potential DDR Controller customers.
