Samsung signs up
for intellectual property
Samsung Electronics Co has signed a multi-year licence agreement for Synopsys' DesignWare intellectual property (IP)
Under the terms of the agreement, Samsung is licensing the DesignWare Cores IP portfolio, which includes the industry-leading PCI Express and USB families of digital cores and analogue PHYs. The first DesignWare IP core Samsung will use in its devices under the licence agreement is the USB 2.0 PHY core.
By standardising on Synopsys' certified Hi-Speed USB 2.0 PHY core, Samsung will more quickly deliver flexible, cost-effective USB 2.0-enabled products based on 130 and 90nm process technology to its ASIC customers.
"Outsourcing select IP lets our engineers focus on the value-added portions of the design such as quality, features and performance", said KH Kim, Vice President of ASIC business at System LSI division, Samsung Electronics.
"This agreement with Synopsys will add industry-leading PCI Express and USB technology to the variety of proven IP cores provided by Samsung's ASIC business".
"Based on Samsung's diverse IP portfolio of high performance and feature-rich ASIC products, we can fully satisfy the high demands of our customers".
"We've enjoyed a long and successful relationship with Samsung and are proud to be chosen as their IP provider, delivering the high-quality IP and dependability that they demand", said John Chilton, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Synopsys' Solutions Group".
