CebaTech Takes Intellectual Property Business to the Next Level with CebaRIP Rapidly Tunable Cores

EATONTOWN, N.J.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 10, 2009— CebaTech Inc., an innovative intellectual property (IP) provider, has announced that it is taking its IP business to the next level with a library of rapidly tunable IP cores, CebaRIP cores, targeted at system-on-chip (SoC), ASIC and FPGA designs. CebaRIP cores can be optimized to meet specific application requirements significantly faster and more cost-effectively than is possible with established IP development flows. The initial offering is targeted at the IP realization of standard algorithms used extensively in storage, storage area network (SAN), network-attached storage (NAS), and networking applications, including compression, encryption, fingerprinting, and more. In addition to these standard CebaRIP cores, CebaTech also implements customers’ proprietary algorithms as rapidly tunable cores.

CebaRIP tunable cores meet an important need in the deployment of silicon IP – the need to tune a given IP design for reuse in multiple application scenarios, each with different performance, power, area and cost requirements.

“After licensing CebaTech’s tunable GZIP compression IP core, we determined the need for three new features which required significant design changes. CebaTech executed the changes and delivered the new, verified RTL in four to five days,” commented Jiebing Wang, VP of Engineering for Hifn (NASDAQ:HIFN), a provider of storage and network security products. “CebaTech’s rapidly tunable IP approach delivered a core that exactly met our requirements – and in a market-beating cycle time.”

The CebaRIP cores leverage both CebaTech’s in-depth storage/network application domain expertise and a high-level synthesis (HLS) design flow based on its in-house C2R Compiler™ solution. Using its HLS technology, CebaTech quickly analyzes candidate IP architectures, achieving the requisite trade-offs much faster than traditional manual approaches. The technology then generates the IP’s RTL implementation automatically. The CebaRIP core approach not only eliminates the time and effort required by manual RTL development, but also enables the fast implementation of engineering change orders (ECOs) at any stage in the design.

“Using traditional IP design methods, the need to re-purpose IP for different applications significantly slows time to market and simultaneously increases development costs,” commented Ramana Jampala, CEO, CebaTech. “Late-stage ECOs can be especially disruptive to the time and cost budget. The standard “fixed” IP library approach cannot solve these problems, but rapidly tunable IP can – and does. Our customers regard CebaRIP cores as a strategic differentiator.”

Taking performance to the limit

To achieve greater on-chip performance, multiple disparate CebaRIP cores can be configured in a plug-and-play ensemble. To boost in-system performance by an order of magnitude or more, CebaTech develops and provides turnkey board-level, CebaRIP-enabled plug-and-play coprocessor subsystems that offload the central processing unit (CPU). The turnkey service includes ASIC and FPGA design, hardware/software system integration and test, and conformance certifications.

“Our HLS technology enables us to modify algorithms, analyze candidate architectures and generate RTL very quickly. Using traditional IP development approaches, the Hifn modifications would have taken a month, or more,” commented Chad Spackman, CebaTech’s CTO. “The customer used to have a choice between fast access to often non-optimal IP, or a long time to market for customized IP that exactly meets requirements. Now the customer has fast access to optimal, customized IP – the best of both worlds.”


All four CebaRIP cores are available immediately.
