Eureka Technology Delivers ARM-to-PCI Core to Solectek Corporation

Los Altos, Calif., (July 9th, 2001) -- In its ongoing commitment to provide resusable intellectual property (IP) cores, Eureka Technology Inc. (Los Altos, Calif.) today announces the delivery of the ARM-to-PCI Host Bridge IP core to Solectek Corporation, a manufacturer of wireless connectivity products located in San Diego, California. Solecteck Corporation is an ARM licensee.

The ARM-to-PCI Host Bridge connects the ARM AHB bus with the PCI bus. As a system host bridge, it transfers data between the ARM CPU and any PCI devices in both directions. It also configures the PCI bus and allocates PCI address space during system initialization. The CPU bus and the PCI bus run at different clock domains that are asynchronous to each other. The core is compliant with PCI Local Bus Specification Rev 2.2. It is available in both Verilog and VHDL source code format and it supports Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) and Programmable Logic Device (PLD) implementations.

"Time-to-market is a very critical factor in the success of our leading edge technology products" said David Gell, Hardware Development Manager at Solectek Corporation (San Diego, CA). "Using IP cores allows us to shorten our design schedule and at the same time expand our design team's capability. We are able to focus our resources in key communication technologies while bringing in outside expertise in PCI and ARM buses design."

"The ARM-to-PCI Host Bridge core exemplifies our support for embedded systems based on various CPU cores" said Simon Lau, president of Eureka Technology. "This core is built upon our experience in PCI bus, CPU interface and data connectivity in System-on-Chip (SoC) design. We are very happy that this core is well received by our customers and business partners."

Other IP cores from Eureka Technology includes system controller for PowerPC, SH2/SH3/SH4 CPU, MIPS, and ARC CPU, PCI bus controller and bridges, SDRAM controller, DMA, UART and other system control functions.
