TOKYO -- In a move to expand its system-on-a-chip portfolio, Japan's Toshiba Corp. has licensed the intellectual-property (IP) cores from sci-worx GmbH of Hanover, Germany.
Under the agreement, sci-worx will license its DesignObjects family of IP cores to Toshiba. The DesignObjects library consists of over 65 soft cores, including a complete portfolio of products for multimedia and networking applications.
It consists of cores for 40-gigabits-per-second networking applications. It also includes IP cores for security and Universal Serial Bus (USB) applications.
"DesignObjects will help us improve turn-around-times in design and development of system LSIs," said Kiyofumi Ochii, General Manager of the System LSI Design Division at Toshiba.
