Milpitas, CA -- February 28, 2001 -- Picoturbo, Inc., a developer of 16/32-bit RISC microprocessor cores for embedded applications, and Fujitsu Siemens Computers, a European computer company, announced today a licensing agreement giving Fujitsu Siemens Computers access to Picoturbo microprocessor technology.
Fujitsu Siemens Computers is licensing Picoturbo's pT-100 and pT-110 microprocessor cores, which they will utilize in SOCs (system-on-a-chip) for their advanced product lines. The cores are 32-bit, high-performance, low-power cores.
Fujitsu Siemens Computers will have access to two of the most popular microprocessor cores in the Picoturbo family of cores. The pT-100 contains a five-stage pipeline for one instruction/cycle and code compression, among many others. In addition to the aforementioned features, the pT-110 contains a built-in cache controller. A new class of digital applications in several of the Fujitsu Siemens Computers' product lines, ranging from notebooks to mainframes, will be enabled by these core microprocessor solutions, the company said. New products will also be developed.
Klaus Brosche, Vice President, Competence Center Volume Products at Fujitsu Siemens Computers, stated, "The Picoturbo RISC processors meet our requirements for embedded applications very well. They will provide optimized SOC solutions when combined with our advanced IC design. We will now be able to create highly integrated devices for many applications throughout Fujitsu Siemens Computers product lines using the picoTurbo cores."
