Agilent Technologies Inc. will deliver to HP ASICs that will be incorporated into workstations and servers based on the Intel Itanium 2 processor architecture.

Agilent worked with HP to implement the physical design of the HP scalable processor zx1 chipset. Agilent implemented the chips in a 0.18?m CMOS process and designed custom AGP-4X, PCI-X and processor pads, as well as custom datapath logic. The three-chip solution consists of the HP zx1 memory and I/O controller, the HP zx1 I/O adapter and an optional HP zx1 scalable memory expander.

"HP's engineering team was challenged to design a chipset that would enable them to deliver workstations and servers optimized for cost, performance and time to market," said James Stewart, VP and general manager of Agilent's ASIC Products Division. "They have accomplished this and we are proud to have played a key role in helping HP meet its design and business objectives."
