Kawasaki Microelectronics Partners with Mysticom Semiconductor to Add 10/100 Ethernet PHY to Its ASIC IP Portfolio

10/100 PHY Technology Supports Popular, High-Volume Ethernet Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif. and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Kawasaki Microelectronics, a leader in advanced yet affordable ASICs, and Mysticom Semiconductor, a supplier of innovative high-speed communication ICs and cores, today announced that Kawasaki has licensed Mysticom's MystiPHY(TM)110, a DSP-based 10/100 Mbps Ethernet physical (PHY) core. This agreement will enable Kawasaki's customers to add a 10Mbps or 100Mbps Ethernet interface to a Kawasaki ASIC to support their high-volume networking applications. Because Mysticom has joined Kawasaki's recently announced IP Partners Program, customers can be assured that Kawasaki can quickly acquire this intellectual property (IP) on their behalf, speeding their ASIC's time-to-market.

"Ethernet is one of the most broadly used technologies in existence today," said Atsushi Takagi, vice-president of engineering of Kawasaki. "With Mysticom's Ethernet core, our ASIC customers will be able to quickly and easily add high-bandwidth data transmission capabilities to their Kawasaki SoC."

The MystiPHY110 is a DSP-based 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX/FX Ethernet PHY that is compliant with the IEEE 802.3u standard. Its DSP-based design approach provides superior performance that exceeds the IEEE 802.3 requirements for cable length and noise immunity, while also providing exceptionally low power consumption and a small die size. The MystiPHY110 operates over cable lengths of up to 160 meters.

"As a Kawasaki IP partner, we are pleased to work with them to fulfill the Ethernet needs of their growing customer base in the networking market," said Rex Kiang, director of marketing at Mysticom. "MystiPHY110 is a perfect fit for Kawasaki's growing ASIC IP portfolio because it was designed specifically for integration into complex SoC devices with special emphasis placed on portability, embedded testing, ease of integration and reliable performance. By taking advantage of this technology, Kawasaki's customers can speed their time-to-market for high-speed communications products."
