InSilica Inc. reduces power, die size by using BA22 RISC processor solutions from Beyond Semiconductor in its next generation camera processors.Santa Clara, Calif. -- July 9, 2009 --
InSilica Inc. announced that it has taken a license to use BA22 RISC Processor solution from Beyond Semiconductor in its next generation camera processors.
The value to InSilica of Beyond Semiconductor's IP solution is to reduce power in its camera processor SoCs while reducing overall silicon area cost. The BA22 processor offers extensive power control features, including clock management and a variety of sleep modes. In addition, the BA22 offers the highest code density in the industry for similar processors, resulting in lower memory requirements and consequently, a smaller die area.
“We are delighted to sign this mutually beneficial agreement with Beyond Semiconductor. Their proven IP for consumer solutions will allow us to continue to lead the semiconductor industry in developing efficient, low-cost and low-power camera processor platforms for our mobile products,” said Ram Rangarajan, Vice President, Insilica's Mobile Division. “We enjoy working with Beyond Semiconductor’s excellent team.”
“InSilica’s decision to design our BA22 RISC processor IP solutions into its high volume mobile chip products, demonstrates their confidence in our ability and our IP,” said Matjaz Breskvar, CEO at Beyond Semiconductor. “We look forward to continuing our strategic partnership with InSilica and contributing to their long-term success.”About Insilica
