Eureka Technology Inc. and embWiSe have partnered to deliver software and hardware solution to their customers by combining Eureka's SD/SDIO/MMC controller and embWiSe's SDIOWorx software.

The Eureka SD/SDIO IP cores include system host controller and card (slave) controller IP cores. Each IP core is highly configurable to meet different system design requirements. Many features are offered to ease system integration and provide very high system throughput. Both IP cores conform to the SD 2.0 standard and are also compatible with MMC standard.

embWiSe offers SDIOWorx, which includes SD host driver, SDIO stack, SD/SDHC storage drivers and SDIO-Wi-Fi driver software for popular WLAN technologies. SDIOWorx, with its support for several host processors and leading embedded OS platforms like Linux, ThreadX, Nucleus and uITRON, targets the mobile communications, mobile consumer electronics and other digitally converged devices market.

"A complete SD design requires close integration between hardware and software", said Simon Lau, President of Eureka Technology. "This silicon proven solution offers compatibility, superior performance and highly customizable system for FPGA and SoC/ASIC applications. Our design has been tested extensively with available SD devices so our customers do not need to worry about interoperability between hardware, software and spec conformance," he added.

"We are pleased to have a synergistic business association with Eureka Technology," said G. Srinivasan, managing director of embWiSe. "With its SD/SDIO IP cores, Eureka offers a compelling solution for SoC/ASIC vendors targeting mobile and other digital convergent devices. Our SDIOWorx software stack already has several design-ins in the mobile communications, mobile CE and other converged device designs. We have achieved a high throughput performance with our SDIO drivers on Eureka's SD/SDIO IP core based SD host controllers for storage and SDIO-Wi-Fi. We are positive that our collaborative hardware-software solutions will significantly add value to our customers, in terms of reduced engineering and time-to-market costs, in addition to high system throughput."
