Elixent's D-Fabrix reconfigurable algorithm processor (RAP) technology won the Design Award for Innovation at last night's EIDA Gala Awards Dinner in Brighton. The awards are voted for by readers of Electronics Weekly, New Electronics and Electronic Product Design. "In introducing these awards, we are recognising industry innovation", said Andrew Castle, EIDA event director, IML Group.

"With the number of high quality nominations we received, I am confident that this will become a prestigious annual event.

It is good to see the market backing an algorithm processing technology innovation such as Elixent's D-Fabrix".

"We're very pleased to have received this prestigious award", said Kenn Lamb, CEO of Elixent.

"When we formed Elixent, it was clear to us that D-Fabrix was an exceptional technology that could really make a difference.

We're glad that our industry has recognised the innovation involved".

Elixent's D-Fabrix reconfigurable algorithm processor (RAP) architecture utilises an array of 4bit arithmetic logic units (ALUs), register and memory blocks that may be combined to support variable data word widths.

The ALUs are positioned in the style of a chessboard, alternating with adjacent 'switchboxes'.

The D-Fabrix technology supports a new class of platform devices that can be truly multi-functional and have the ability to support multiple applications, adapting efficiently to changing specifications.

Systems using D-Fabrix show benefits in speed, cost and power consumption, while also enabling engineers and designers to deal with the dynamics of the semiconductor industry.
