Portland, OR--July 29, 1996--Interconnectix Inc. (Portland, OR) announced that Lucent Technologies Inc., formerly the systems and technology businesses of AT&T, plus Bell Labs, has contracted with Interconnectix to acquire software for use by Lucent Technologies in designing its printed circuit boards. As a result of this commitment, access to Interconnectix' Interconnect Synthesis technology will be available to all hardware development groups within Lucent Technologies. Interconnect Synthesis will be used in the design of various telecommunications, networking, and wireless products produced by Lucent Technologies.
Interconnect Synthesis is a technology that takes a high-level electrical abstraction of interconnect, in terms of timing and signal purity specifications, and generates a detailed and implementable physical representation that matches the electrical description.

Xilinx Extends Core Program
San Jose, CA--July 29, 1996--Xilinx Inc. (San Jose, CA) announced the delivery of its second, 100 percent compliant PCI core, the Xilinx LogiCore "Initiator" module. Previously, with the LogiCore PCI "Target," the module could only perform slave functions. With the new module, a customer can now complete a master interface design in which the Initiator module acts as a controller for the PCI bus.
Additionally, the company announced a new speed grade for the XC4000E family. The -2 speed grade, which is now shipping across the entire product family, is up to 20 percent faster than the -3. The new XC4013-2 speed grade enables the delivery of the PCI Initiator module, which requires a high level of design complexity and performance.
The modules operate at 33 MHz and include high speed burst synchronous FIFOs. They can be customized to fit individual design requirements.
The combination Xilinx PCI Initiator/Target module for Xilinx FPGAs complete with a data sheet, comprehensive user guide, and PCI Systems Architecture textbook is available for designing withViewlogic schematics, VHDL, and Verilog for $8,995. The Target-only interface is available for $4,995. All PCI Target customers will receive a free upgrade to the Target/Initiator modules.
The XC4000E-2 devices begin at $30 today in 5,000 piece quantities. By the second half of 1997 the high volume price will be $11. A mask programmed HardWire gate array version will be available for $6.50. The XC4013E-2 devices begin at $185 today in 5,000 piece quantities and will be as low as $55 in high-volume production in the second half of 1997. A HardWire version will be available in high volume for $25 in the second half of 1997.
