Denali's Configurable DDR2/3 DRAM, PHY, and Verification IP Products Enable Siverge Networks to Optimize Performance in Network Convergence ProcessorSUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Sept. 23, 2008
-- Denali Software, Inc., a world-leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and intellectual property (IP), today announced that Siverge Networks, a fabless semiconductor company focused on the packet evolution in carrier networks, has adopted Denali's Databahn(TM) DDR2/3 memory controller IP, integrated PHY and MMAV(TM) for their high-performance ASIC chip. Siverge's next-generation high-performance network processors allow for larger bandwidth and convergence of different protocols across networking systems and multiservice capabilities. Denali's design IP, integrated PHY, and verification IP accelerates Siverge's designers' ability to design DDR2/3 memory systems, lower their integration risk, and speed their time-to-market for their new convergence chip.
"Denali Software, our IP vendor of choice, has provided us a high-quality configurable DDR2 IP solution, and helped us achieve our design and performance requirements which were critical to our time-to-market schedule," said Uzi Zangi, vice president of Research and Development at Siverge Networks. "Our new convergence family of devices (code name Griffin) will support a large number of different interfaces, a huge number of different channels at various speeds and a uniquely wide range of protocols, thus meeting the needs of many key manufacturer and solution providers of all types of transport systems (wireline and wireless), switches and routers, multiservice switches and mobile RNC and BSC systems."
The Databahn product provides a comprehensive infrastructure for configuring, analyzing, and generating the optimal memory controller for any given application. Denali's Databahn combination DDR2/DDR3 memory controllers and Denali's Databahn PHY products achieve speeds up to 1600 Mbps. Together, they offer a powerful, multi-port solution with configurable features and functionality to satisfy system performance requirements, significantly reducing integration and interoperability risks.
Siverge Networks' Griffin (SV36xx) family of devices is Siverge's flagship product family. Griffin family of devices re-defines the price, performance, power, functionality in the layer 1, layer 2 and layer 3 telecommunication market. Some members in Griffin family are unique 'any port, any service, any system, and any network devices, targeted for next-generation transport systems as well switches and routers, multiservice switches, and Base Station Controller and Radio Network Controller systems. Other members are providing specific functionality and are introducing a refreshing cost reduction together with revolutionary integration level and without compromising feature. All of the Griffin family devices are package, pin, and software compatible enabling huge savings in research and development as well as inventory and maintenance: "one design, many (different) linecards and systems."
"High-quality IP is essential to solving DDR2/3 memory system requirements, especially when dealing with sophisticated and high-throughput applications," said Marc Greenberg, technical marketing director at Denali Software. "With our design IP products, which include support for the latest DDR2/3 specifications, we are providing customers with flexible memory systems, reducing their design risks, and enabling seamless integration into their system environment. We also realize the importance of providing a complete IP solution that helps to ensure that Siverge will be able to meet aggressive schedules for their designs and we are pleased to be working with Siverge to achieve this."About Databahn Solutions
