Calxeda Uses Analog Bits’ Integrated Sensors

SUNNYVALE, CA /PRNewswire/ -- Analog Bits Inc., a leader in integrated clocking and interface IP, disclosed the use of its new process, voltage, and temperature sensors with initial customers. These integrated sensors help to monitor and optimize operating process, voltage, and temperature in ultra-low-power server products, such as the latest ARM-based ECX-1000 server-on-chip from Calxeda, helping to further reduce system-level power consumption.

"Whether a product is portable or tethered, reducing total power is critical in today's chip market," stated Mahesh Tirupattur, Executive Vice President, Analog Bits. "For years, Analog Bits has been known for leadership in low-power PLL and SerDes IP products. Our new family of small, integrated sensor macros help companies like Calxeda achieve stunning results of <4 W per SOC by carefully monitoring process, voltage, and temperature variations throughout a chip. We are honored to have Calxeda as a customer and pleased to have helped with their great product."

"We have been very impressed with the quality of Analog Bits' IP products," commented David Borland, Co-Founder and VP Hardware Engineering at Calxeda. "Not only did their products help us achieve our product's low-power goals, but their IP worked right out of the box. Many thanks!"
