Handshake Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Koninklijke Philips NV, has released a clockless version of a multilayer AMBA advanced high-performance bus (AHB), which provides low power consumption and low EMI.

The scan-testable clockless version of the interconnect IP complements the company's ARM996HS licensable asynchronous processor core announced in 2006. It is also compatible with clocked and clockless masters and slaves.

The clockless multilayer AHB targets medium performance applications and is particularly well-suited to event- or interrupt-driven applications where its instant response and zero standby power consumption are useful.

"Drawing on our experience with the ARM996HS and the SFR bus and peripherals for our HT80C51 core, IP for a clockless multilayer AHB was the next logical step. We will continue to help customers benefit from clockless technology with further developments in processors, interconnects and peripherals," said Ad Peeters, chief technology officer of Handshake, in a statement.

"The release of dedicated IP for a clockless multilayer AHB by Handshake Solutions will help further reduce overall power and EMI requirements for embedded systems," said John Cornish, vice president of marketing for processors for ARM, in the same statement.
