Programmable logic developer QuickLogic has inked a development pact with Renesas Technology, under which the companies will develop an IP reference design for 802.11b/g wireless LAN (WLAN) networks.

The reference platform is designed around Renesas' SH7720 32bit RISC processor and QuickLogic's low-power programmable PCI bridge solution. The SH7720 is part of the SuperH family of 32bit RISC processors. This processor is equipped with a 133 MHz (173 MIPS) SH3-DSP core, 32KB of cache memory, a color LCD controller, SSL hardware accelerator, USB 1.1 interface, I?C interface, and PCMCIA interface.

The PCI bridge is implemented on the QuickPCI family of programmable logic devices (PLDs). This device implements the company's ?Watt technology to reduce power consumption.

The reference platform integrates all the essential elements for a VoWLAN phone, from the keypad and display to the voice codecs and Wi-Fi module. The platform runs on a Linux operating system and can operate using 802.11b or 802.11b/g chipsets.
