STARKVILLE, USA: Camgian Microsystems Corporation, a provider of advanced electronic systems and semiconductor technologies, today announced that it has completed an agreement to transfer its ultra low power digital circuit technology to Wave Semiconductor, a new commercial venture recently funded by Tallwood Venture Capital and Southern Cross Venture Partners.
Wave will transition Camgian’s asynchronous CMOS compatible digital technology, Null Convention Logic (NCL), into the mainstream semiconductor industry and Camgian will continue leveraging NCL in both its government and commercial electronic systems and product development initiatives.
“We are thrilled to support this new venture and excited about the impact NCL will make on the electronics industry by providing a superior approach for solving key power and concurrency challenges,” said Gary Butler, Camgian President and CEO.
“NCL provides the foundation for the integrated circuit and related IP products that Wave is developing,” said Pete Foley, Wave’s CEO.
“Current systemic power and concurrency challenges call for unconventional solutions, and we believe the time is right for asynchronous approaches. NCL dramatically reduces power consumption and EMI/RFI, and is a delay and voltage insensitive technology that offers tremendous process independence.
“Unlike previous asynchronous design approaches, NCL is the most robust asynchronous technology available, and enables chip and even system wide fully asynchronous implementations. NCL provides the capability to design truly logically determined systems, and Wave will build upon NCL to deliver a family of programmable low power products.”
