Eureka Technology Simplifies Memory System Design With High Performance MemConnect™ Solution

LOS ALTOS, California., December 1st, 2004 - Eureka Technology Inc, a leading intellectual property (IP) core provider, today announces the immediate availability of MemConnect™, a complete memory solution. MemConnect is a comprehensive, customizable, and silicon proven IP solution for memory system design. By combining support for multiple memory devices and multiple bus interfaces to create a high performance memory system controller, MemConnect greatly simplifies the task of designing and integrating complex memory systems.

MemConnect supports a full range of memory devices, including: SDR SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, Mobile SDRAM, FCRAM, Flash, Synchronous Flash, SRAM, EEPROM, and NAND Flash. In addition, MemConnect also supports a full range of bus interfaces, including: AMBA, MIPS SysAD and EC interface, PowerPC, PCI, PCI-X, PCI-Express and simple on-chip SoC interfaces. With the memory control, bus interface and arbitration all available from one source, MemConnect ensures that all the components are optimized to deliver the highest bandwidth possible under a unified verification environment.

"Eureka Technology has many years of experience in designing memory systems and bus interfaces. Over 200 successful designs have used Eureka’s memory control and interface technologies." said Simon Lau, President of Eureka Technology. "MemConnect encapsulates all of this expertise and know-how into one simple solution that is readily available to our customers."

In addition to providing a comprehensive selection of memory and bus interfaces, MemConnect also incorporates arbitration units for shared memory access, Error Correct Codes (ECC), data scrubbing, amd DMA controllers, among other features. The arbitration units and bus interface units are optimized to utilize concurrent and pipeline access to memory devices for very high bandwidth applications.

To manage all the features of MemConnect, Eureka Technology introduces MemDesigner™, a powerful tool designed to allow users to quickly customize their memory systems. MemDesigner is a free, web-based application which allows the user to select the number and types of memories, bus interfaces, and other options. It combines the benefit of fully customized features with silicon proven and pre-verified design. MemDesginer removes all unused logic, resulting in smaller gate count and improvement on performance.

"MemDesigner will allow our customers to customize their designs quickly and easily. It will also guide them through the design process and allow them to select various options to ensure first-pass design success." said Simon Lau. "It is freely available from our web site which will allow our customers to evaluate and see MemConnect's capabilities prior to committing to the design."
