S2C Offers Northwest Logic’s High-Performance Memory Interface IP in China

S2C Inc., a leading total solution provider in facilitating systems to chip innovations, today announced the representation of Northwest Logic Inc., a leading provider of high-performance digital Intellectual Property (IP) Cores, in China.

Shanghai, China – March 3, 2009 – S2C Inc., a leading total solution provider in facilitating systems to chip innovations, today announced the representation of Northwest Logic Inc., a leading provider of high-performance digital Intellectual Property (IP) Cores, in China. Northwest Logic’s provides IP Cores interfacing to DDR3/2 SDRAM, RLDRAM II, PCI Express, PCI-X, PCI and MIPI. S2C will provide value-added support and services for Northwest IP core users throughout different design phases. Northwest IP cores are complementary to S2C’s existing product lines including other Silicon IP cores, rapid SoC prototyping on FPGA and eASIC devices.

Northwest Logic provides a broad range of high-performance, easy-to-use silicon IP cores optimized for use in both Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC) and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA). Northwest Logic’s IP solutions include a complete Memory Interface Solution that covers all different types of DRAM support including DDR3/DDR2/DDR/SDR SDRAM, Mobile DDR/SDR SDRAM and RLDRAM II. These memory interface cores can be packaged with optional bus interface modules that interface to standards such as AXI, AHB, and PLB. The solution support many advanced features including full arbitrated multi-port support, efficiency-driven request reordering, bank management, look-ahead processing, and ECC support. All together, these features enable a multi-port memory design with different types of bus interfaces to be quickly and easily created.

“High-performance and reliable memory interfaces are critical for today’s SoC designs. We are proud to offer Northwest Logic’s memory interface IP cores which are fully silicon-proven and have been licensed by over 230 companies world-wide”, said Mon-Ren Chene, Chairman & CTO of S2C. “S2C with our expertise in rapid SoC prototyping on FPGA and eASIC solution offers two key value-added services to Northwest IP users in China. First, most designs today go through a FPGA prototyping stage. S2C provides out-of-box support for FPGA prototyping with its Xilinx Virtex-5 based TAI Logic Module and Northwest Logic IP cores. Second, for designs that need an accelerated production schedule or multiple rapid derivatives, S2C offers eASIC’s customizable, no-mask fee, no minimum order quantity ASIC devices as an early SoC production alternative. Northwest Logic also provides comprehensive eASIC devices support including an eASIC-specific DDR PHY. This DDR PHY leverages the built-in DDR I/Os and DLLs of eASIC’s Nextreme devices.”

“Despite the current economic climate, we believe China’s semiconductor industry will continue to grow at rapid pace. We are excited to partner with S2C to increase our promotion and support for our IP solutions to the Chinese designers”, said Brian Daellenbach, President of Northwest Logics. “With S2C’s strong local engineering team and spectrum of products targeting to solve SoC design challenges, we will provide our Chinese customers a one-stop user experience from design evaluation, integration, FPGA prototyping to final tape-out using Northwest IP cores.”

All Northwest cores are available today in China through S2C. For more information, please contact [email protected].
