GDA Technologies Eases The Integration Of HyperTransport™ Technology Into Existing Chips
– GDA Technologies offers HyperTransport intellectual property and integration services to help reduce design costs and development time for HyperTransport™ enabled chips –
SUNNYVALE, CA --
AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced that GDA Technologies is offering intellectual property (IP) and related integration services to companies wishing to build high performance chips based on HyperTransport™ technology.
GDA Technologies, Inc., a fast growing supplier of intellectual property and design services, is providing the silicon code or blue print that will enable companies to adopt HyperTransport interconnect technology. GDA’s reusable HyperTransport modules and integration services pave the way for companies to design HyperTransport technology-enabled integrated circuits for networking and communications devices, and computers.
“With this new IP available from GDA Technologies, companies don’t have to design HyperTransport technology-enabled integrated circuits from the ground up. By enabling HyperTransport interoperability and integration into existing technology, GDA helps companies lower their design costs, and deliver products faster,” said Richard Heye, vice president of Platform Engineering and Infrastructure for AMD’s Computation Products Group.
“HyperTransport is an important technology that enables high
bandwidth designs with limited impact in the overall architecture,” said AG Karunakaran, president of GDA Technologies, Inc. “We feel this core will help our customers design high-bandwidth integrated circuit designs and alleviate the worry of possible data bottlenecks.”
“This new IP from GDA Technologies is an important step as it helps the Consortium with its number one goal: to make HyperTransport technology more easily accessible as an industry standard interconnect technology,” said Gabriele Sartori, president of the HyperTransport Technology Consortium.
About HyperTransport™ Technology
HyperTransport technology is designed to enable integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, networking and telecommunications equipment exchange information to communicate with each other greater than 40 times faster than with some existing bus technologies. HyperTransport technology is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link that enables chips to transfer data at peak rates up to 12.8 Gigabytes per second (102.4 Gbit/sec) as it is defined today. By helping to eliminate system bottlenecks, HyperTransport technology allows today's faster microprocessors to use system memory more efficiently in high-end multiprocessing systems. The engineering design flexibility offered by HyperTransport technology helps to scale performance in speed and width in order to meet requirements for high-end server class machines, professional workstations, desktop PCs, and battery-powered portable computers. HyperTransport technology was invented at AMD with contributions from industry partners and is managed and licensed by the HyperTransport Technology Consortium, a Texas non-profit corporation.
