QuickLogic Corp. has announced a partnership with Renesas Technology Corp. to enable low-power solutions for the expanding Wi-Fi market.

Under the partnership, OEM customers using Renesas' embedded SH processor will be able to access a programmable companion bridge from QuickLogic that enables connectivity to miniPCI and Cardbus based Wi-Fi modules or chipsets.

"Our collaboration enables Renesas OEM customers to add broadband capability to embedded systems architected around Renesas Technology SH processors with minimal software development time and engineering risk," stated Kevin Yee, director of business development for QuickLogic, in a statement. "This partnership is about offering the lowest power Wi-Fi solutions in the marketplace for handheld, portable and other power-sensitive consumer appliances."

Initial chipsets from the partnership will target wireless voice-over-IP (VoIP), also called VoWLAN, and battery-operated handheld applications that support the IEEE 802.11a/b/g specifications.
