San Jose, Calif., October. 3rd, 2002, - LEDA Systems® Inc., the leader in IP and Platforms for analog and mixed signal Systems-on-a-Chip (SoC), today announced that its PCI Express I/O for SOC designs targets UMC's 0.13 micron CMOS process. The company's analog and mixed-signal cores are also available on UMC's 0.25 to 0.13 micron processes.
"The need for speed continues and the advancement of PCI Express is a natural extension of our PCI architecture. By targeting our product line of high-speed I/Os to UMC's CMOS process, it can now be utilized by a broader range of customers," said Steve Kompolt, VP of Marketing of LEDA Systems. "Our experience with the 8b/10b encoding technique for achieving very high data rates can be applied directly to our PCI Express offering. We expect that the market demand for PCI Express will be very high."
"C. T. Lee, VP of Corporate Marketing at UMC, said, "UMC is committed to offering an extensive portfolio of IP cores to customers so they can choose the best cores for their specific design requirements. Leda's analog, mixed signal and PCI Express IP are welcome additions to our Gold IP Catalog."
The LEDA Systems' PCI Express utilizes LEDA's patented Direct Bump Access Technology (DBA™)which provides the lowest resistance and impedance for increased performance of the PCI Express I/O.
