Tensilica Hits Major Milestone: 200 Licensees for Dataplane Processor IP Cores

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- Dec 04, 2012 -- Tensilica®, Inc. today announced that 200 companies have licensed Tensilica's dataplane processor unit (DPU) technology. Over 500 licenses have been signed with these 200 companies, and several thousand unique DPUs have been optimized by Tensilica (standard products) and its licensees (customized products) and deployed in silicon.

Last month Tensilica announced that its licensees have shipped over two billion DPUs (see press release dated October 10, 2012) and that license revenue for the previous four quarters (ended June 30, 2012) has continuously surpassed that of any other DSP (digital signal processor) IP licensing company by an average margin of 25 percent.

"Reaching the 200th licensee mark is another testimonial to our growing success. The universe of potential Tensilica licensees, and applications addressed by Tensilica, is much larger than that of other signal processor licensing companies since our products can range from tiny, micro DPUs to state-of-the-art, high-performance DSPs," stated Jack Guedj, Tensilica's president and CEO. "A growing number of customers are adopting Tensilica IP cores because they can get a significant reduction in time-to-market using our complete hardware and software subsystem solutions for audio and baseband signal processing and our state-of-the-art software programming tools."

Tensilica lists many of its 200 licensees at http://www.tensilica.com/company/customer-profiles.
