Cupertino, Calif.--Aug 17, 1998--Morphics Technology, Inc., a privately-funded Silicon Valley startup, has been formed to provide solutions to make Software-Defined Radio (SDR) an economically viable technology for wireless handsets. Architectures and designs based on Morphics's IP will allow the development of low-cost, multi-standard, digital handsets that greatly reduce the number of different designs required to be developed and supported. The resulting efficiencies reduce costs for semiconductor manufacturers, handset manufacturers, and service providers, and result in the faster development of products that can support enhanced multimedia services for next-generation networks.
Principals on the Morphics Technology team include: Colin L.M. Macnab, chief executive officer; N. Charles Podaras, VP, business development; Dr. John Ralston, VP, marketing; David M. Holmes, VP, engineering; Stephen L. Wasson, director, reconfigurable logic design; Steven R. Sweitzer, director, software engineering; and Dr. Ravi Subramanian, director, systems architecture.
Morphics is supported by a Technical Advisory Board founded with the lead participation of Jan Rabaey, Professor of Electrical Engineering at University of California-Berkeley, and Heinrich Meyr, Professor and Chair at Aachen University of Technology, Germany. Rabaey is acknowledged as a leading expert in the evolution of low-power reconfigurable architectural solutions for wireless systems and electronic design automation techniques for heterogeneous multiprocessing systems. Meyr is responsible for fundamental advances in the interaction of algorithm and VLSI architecture in the creation of optimized silicon and software solutions for digital wireless transmission systems.
