-- LSI Logic Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced that Datang Microelectronics Technology Co., Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Datang Telecom Technology, and one of the largest telecommunications equipment manufacturers in China, has licensed the popular LSI Logic open architecture ZSP400 digital signal processor (DSP) core ( http://www.zsp.com/zsp400.html
) for use in Chinese Wireless Local Loop S-CDMA handset designs. This agreement marks yet another milestone in securing the ZSP(R) DSP's place as the core of choice as Datang becomes the latest major wireless integrated circuit (IC) provider to license the architecture. Datang selected the ZSP400 for its ideal balance of performance, power and cost efficiency to meet the growing demand for proven DSP technology in Asia.
"Datang is a significant customer for the ZSP architecture, especially since China is where current DSP demand is greatest," said Handel Jones, president of market research firm International Business Strategies. "The China wireless handset market is well positioned for dramatic future growth, given the record number of multinationals and foreign producers investing in China's electronic information industry. The success that LSI Logic has demonstrated with its ZSP technology in both wireless and wireline applications is impressive and a tribute to the architecture's ideal cost and performance combination."
The ZSP400 DSP Core is a four-way superscalar, dual-MAC DSP core that has found wide acceptance in broadband, multimedia and wireless applications. Offering great performance, low power and best-in-class code density plus wide-ranging third-party support, the ZSP400 is the leading licensable DSP solution for cost and time-to-market sensitive applications. The ZSP architecture is well suited for both voice and baseband processing as well as audio and video processing, making it ideal for converging wireless and multimedia applications.
"We are pleased to have the LSI Logic ZSP400 form the basis for the chip design in our next generation wireless handset products," said Zhao Lun, CEO of Datang Microelectronics. "The open ZSP architecture gives us the manufacturing flexibility we need and provides us with a long-term product roadmap that supports us from low-volume to high-volume. The combination best-in-class technology and efficiency of the ZSP also gives us the ability to keep a consistent quality and cost structure for our customers."
Tuan Dao, vice president of the LSI Logic DSP Products Division, added, "The wireless handset market remains a significant growth opportunity in China and we are excited to be a part in Datang's drive for market leader leadership. With the ZSP architecture, LSI Logic provides the complete, high quality signal processing solution handset IC makers need to remain at the forefront of communications technology."About the LSI Logic ZSP Family of DSP Cores
