Sun ported the Savaje code to a Linux kernel and is expanding the applications programming interfaces and set of developer tools that will ship with it. It plans to make the code available on other platforms in the future.

TAIPEI, Taiwan &#151 In a push to diversify, foundry United Microelectronics Corp. is gearing up for a drive into CPUs and NAND flash memory production on its 65-nanometer and 45-nanometer technology nodes. The company said it is in talks on a CPU production deal, but it is being circumspect on how it will attack the high-volume flash memory market.

Saying UMC cannot ignore” the rapidly growing commodity flash market, UMC chief executive Jackson Hu plans to push UMC to pursue deals in both NAND, NOR and SRAM, but not DRAM. Hu was tight-lipped on details, but hinted that UMC doesn't intend to wade too deeply into the turbulent waters that typify competition in the commodity flash market.

NAND and NOR have huge fluctuations in price, so that is something we have to consider very carefully,” he said in an interview with EE Times at the company's Hsinchu headquarters. Clearly, the high-end, high density area is a very challenging board game. It takes significant investment and the technology moves much faster.”

Hu acknowledged that opportunities in the commodity NOR market may be limited. That may result in the foundry expanding its business in embedded NOR, similar to a deal it struck with Cypress Semiconductor in March. Cypress plans to shift its 0.13-micron S8 embedded-flash technology and two future generations of embedded-flash technology to UMC. The foundry will also make advanced SRAMs for Cypress, the first of which will be made on a 65-nanometer process later this year.

In CPUs, it looks like UMC will also take a step-wise approach and avoid the significant resource investment needed for production of bleeding edge CPUs. Honestly speaking, if you try to aim for high-end silicon on insulator for desktop, that goal may be too high to reach,” he said. So we will do bulk CMOS and that automatically translates into low-power processors.”

We want everything complete and ready to go. We need a complete solution, but now we just can't get it,” Tallo said. The IP industry, he said, needs to continue to increase the value proposition of third-party silicon IP. You're doing it, but there are still gaps,” he said.

Bill Martin, general manager of the IP division at Mentor Graphics, noted his company's recent release of a complete USB subsystem that includes a digital controller, a physical-layer component and middleware. It's a complete solution that leveraged both Mentor's embedded software and IP development groups, he said.

It's raising up the value proposition, and we need to keep doing that,” Martin said. Right now there's too much IP that doesn't work together.” The biggest problem Mentor sees, according to Martin, is incompatibility between software drivers and the core IP.

The IP issue is very simple,” said venture capitalist Lucio Lanza, managing director of Lanza TechVentures. There is IP that is needed and IP that is useless.” If you produce IP that's easy to copy and make, Lanza said, you won't make money. The kind of IP that has value, he said, is hard-to-develop IP that's on a treadmill” that requires continuous improvement.

Most silicon IP has a very limited value,” Lanza said. Most of it is based on RTL code, he said, and it might save a few weeks or reduce the design cycle by a few percent. Most of these companies have non-viable business. I don't want to invest in them.” Lanza was chairman of Artisan Components before its 2004 purchase by ARM.
