Chipidea Introduces Next-Generation USB IP for Ultra Low-Power Applications

September 25, 2006 --(BUSINESS WIRE)—— Chipidea, the world's leading provider of analog/mixed-signal silicon intellectual property, today introduced its next-generation USB2.0 IP, the most compelling offer in the market, designed specifically for ultra low-power applications. By providing chipmakers with maximum flexibility and low cost for integration into System-on-a-Chip (SoC) devices, Chipidea's new USB architecture is the ideal solution for developing leading-edge designs.

Chipidea's advanced USB2.0 IP features battery-management functionality for low-power operation during high-speed data transfers. By leveraging its proven USB IP portfolio, Chipidea designed its next-generation solution for small die area to help chip designers get to market with the lowest cost.

"Winning SoC designs offer the best power consumption and the smallest die area because market-leading portable applications such as smart phones and digital media devices demand long battery life and low cost," said Luis Miguel Sampaio, vice president of IP connectivity solutions for Chipidea. "Our sophisticated new USB solution helps our customers get to market quickly by providing a feature-rich well proved architecture with the industry's lowest power consumption and smallest silicon area."

The new Chipidea USB2.0 IP also includes charge detection and audio functionality that enable key features for SoC designers in the consumer electronics market. It also enables greater integration flexibility by providing the widest selection of microprocessor interfaces.

With immediate availability in 90-nanometer (nm), 80nm, 65nm and 45nm process technology, Chipidea's latest USB IP delivers a broad range of options for advanced application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), application-specific standard product (ASSP) and SoC designs.
