Tensilica Licensees Ship Two Billion IP Cores; License Revenue Now Larger than Any Other DSP Licensing Company

Tensilica's licensees have recorded shipments of over two billion Tensilica DPUs and are now shipping at a run rate of approximately 800 million Tensilica DPU IP cores per year, which is more than a 50 percent increase over the run rate announced in June 2011, when the company reached its one billionth core shipment.

“Our growth has exceeded our plans and we reached the two billion milestone a quarter ahead of our projections,” stated Jack Guedj, Tensilica’s president and CEO. “Similarly, we’ve seen continuing and sustained increases in license revenues as more and more tier 1 semiconductor and systems companies adopt our DPU/DSP products. Our growth is due to the fact our DPUs provide better performance/power/area than classic DSPs and are scalable from function-specific micro signal and control processors to large general-purpose DSPs.”  See press release.
