WiLinx Licenses Tensilica’s Xtensa LX2 Processor Core For Low-Power UWB Chips

WiLinx licensed the Xtensa LX2 configurable processor for its low-power True-UWB single chip CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor) solutions. WiLinx True-UWB product offers 7 GHZ (from 3 to 10 GHz) of air spectrum as the key enabler for worldwide adoption of UWB into the cellular phone handsets, PCs, PC peripherals and CE (consumer electronics) devices.

“Following an in-depth technical analysis, we selected Tensilica’s Xtensa LX2 configurable processor core for our single chip low power True-UWB product families. The 7-GHz coverage of our solution unleashes the full capacities of the WiMedia based UWB solution to our customers. In particular it includes ‘above 6 GHz WiMedia bands,’ mandatory for Bluetooth-3.0 enabled devices,” stated Masoud Djafari, CEO and co-founder of WiLinx. “Tensilica’s easily configurable processor technology plays a key role in delivering the feature rich WiMedia protocol at low power and cost. It also makes the product more flexible for future upgrades.”
