SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 19, 2002--Virtual Silicon Technology, Inc., a leader in semiconductor intellectual property, today announced availability of its multi-port register files (MPRFs) on TSMC 0.25 micron (CL025G) and 0.18 micron (CL018G) process technologies. The 1P, 2P, 3P and 4P MPRFs are offered in synchronous, asynchronous and mixed-mode architectures.
"The MPRFs are the most optimized buffer memories for use in high speed networking and multi-processor applications," said Mike Shamshirian, memory product marketing director at Virtual Silicon. "The 3P and 4P register files with fast access time of 2.5ns are ideal memories for multi-processor SoC applications where simultaneous access by multiple processing elements are required".
The MPRFs are available in synchronous read/synchronous write, asynchronous read/asynchronous write and asynchronous read/synchronous write architectures. Other major features of these memories are bit write, three mux options and output enable. The MPRFs are now available on TSMC's CL025G and CL018G process technologies. Designers can use the web instance generators on Virtual Silicon web site to evaluate different configurations for optimal solution. Virtual Silicon will then provide the GDS files for the desired configurations to the latest design rules. Each GDS files is tested and verified to Virtual Silicon outgoing quality assurance standard.
Availability and Pricing
The MPRF generators are available on Virtual Silicon web site. Authorized customers can download evaluation models for the desired configurations. Prices for CL025G ranges from $15K to $30K and for the CL018G ranges from $18K to $40K depending on the number of ports, configurations and quantities.
