Virage Logic Corp. broadens its SoC infrastructure IP portfolio with a new product line based on the proven technology that Virage Logic acquired from NXP in November 2009. The new Integra portfolio of SoC infrastructure IP includes advanced multi-layer and control networks, embedded QoS functionality as well as memory controllers for embedded SRAMs/ROMs. This complete solution is able to provide the central back-bone of any SoC and extends Virage Logic's ability to serve as a single source provider of highly differentiated, production-proven IP.

"The Integra SoC Infrastructure IP portfolio was designed to be high performance and cost effective, and therefore is suited for any application in today's world of internet-enabled programmable multi-core devices," said Henk Hamoen, director of marketing for SoC infrastructure at Virage Logic. "Integra addresses the global drive for energy conservation by applying a power islands methodology; a technology that at the same time improves time-to-market because its implementation is extremely physical design friendly. Production proven innovative data and control interconnect networks as well as memory controllers for embedded SRAMs/ROMs are provided. The QoS Engine also provides unique system Quality of Service features that enable perfect media streaming in complex multimedia SoCs including DTV, STBs and portable A/V devices."

The Integra multi-layer and control networks connect with Virage Logic's ARC processor family via industry standard AMBA interfaces and provide an easy hook-up to the recently introduced portfolio of processor peripherals. The Integra QoS engine also easily interfaces to the company's Intelli DDR controllers, while the Integra memory controllers are optimized for use with Virage Logic's SiWare Memory embedded SRAM/ROM memories.

The Integra product portfolio is available today for early adopters and will be available for general distribution in September 2010.
