Kawasaki Microelectronics Inc., a provider of ASIC semiconductor technology solutions, has licensed a full suite of ARC Int.'s hardware and software technology to expand its ASIC intellectual property portfolio for consumer electronics products. The products licensed by Kawasaki include the ARCtangent-A5 RISC/ DSP processor, ARC's VoIPs, digital wireless, digital imaging and audio codecs, and the MetaWare Tool Suite.

The audio codec libraries are optimized to run on the ARCtangent-A5, taking advantage of its customizable DSP extensions to reduce MIP requirements. As a result, ARC says that the library delivers some of the most MIPs-efficient digital audio software available on a small, low-power RISC or DSP platform.
