SAN JOSE, USA: Arasan Chip Systems, Inc. ("Arasan"), a leading provider of intellectual property (IP) Cores, formally announced the availability of the world's first, proven, Secure Digital eXtended Capacity (SDXC) / SDIO 3.0 / eMMC 4.4 Host Controller IP.
Arasan has been working over the last six months with major OEMs who have successfully integrated this IP into their SOCs, which will be in next generation mobile phones and netbooks.
This IP is compliant with the latest SD Physical Layer Specification v3.0, Part E1 SDIO 3.0 specification and JEDEC's eMMC 4.4 specification. SoC designers now have the flexibility to tailor their memory subsystem to the functional requirements of their platforms.
"Arasan is the first IP provider to integrate three of the highest performance memory specifications available today into a single, high-quality IP core," said Prakash Kamath, Vice-President of Engineering at Arasan. "Designers building consumer and mobile electronics now can optimize their memory interface to meet their performance, security and expanding application requirements of their new platforms."
"SoC designers have been looking for a standard, scalable solution to future proof their systems' ever growing need for memory and high-performance I/O," said Somnath Viswanath, Product Marketing Manager at Arasan. "By integrating Arasan's SDXC/SDIO3.0/eMMC4.4 Controller IP, designers can be the first to offer innovative platform solutions with sufficient performance for the most demanding applications - today and in the future".
