|Eureka Technology ports IP cores to new Xilinx Spartan-3 platform to meet demand for high volume designs
LOS ALTOS, Calif., April 15, 2003 -- Eureka Technology, a Xilinx AllianceCORE
partner and a founding member of the Common License Consortium, today announced
it is supporting customers seeking IP cores for use in the new Spartan-3 platform FPGAs
from Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX). Eureka Technology offers CPU interface and peripheral
interface IP used in System-on-Chip (SoC) designs for embedded applications. These IP
cores reduce time-to-market, eliminate design risks, and reduce development costs.
“Many of our customers have wrestled with the decision between ASIC and FPGA
implementations for their designs,” said Simon Lau, Eureka Technology president.
“The Spartan-3 platform seriously tips the scale towards the FPGA side with the first-ever
combination of high-density, low price and programmability, all in one package. The decision
just got easier for many of our customers.”
“Eureka Technology is a successful partner and strong contributor to our program,” said
Babak Hedayati, senior director of Product Solutions Marketing at Xilinx. “Their unique
portfolio of IP products that support embedded processor design will be in high demand on
the new Spartan-3 platform. We are excited that they have chosen to be a significant early
adopter of this new family of FPGAs.”
Customers can contact Eureka Technology immediately for Spartan-3 based IP. As a
member of the Common License Consortium, Eureka supports the SignOnce IP License,
the industry’s first multi-vendor common license agreement for FPGA-based IP
