Mobiveil and Spansion Collaborate to Continue Momentum of HyperFlash™ Adoption in High-Growth Automotive Electronics Market
MILPITAS, CA–(Marketwired – February 03, 2015) – Mobiveil, Inc., a fast growing supplier of silicon intellectual property, platforms, and IP-enabled engineering services today announced it will provide IP licensing and support for Spansion’s HyperBus™ controller. Mobilveil is licensing Spansion’s HyperBus™ intellectual property that is integrated into microcontrollers, allowing these products to interface with Spansion’s HyperFlash™ memories. Mobiveil’s decades of experience in delivering high‐quality, configurable, production‐proven, high-speed serial interconnect silicon IP cores combined with Spansion’s leading-edge HyperBus memories will expand the use of the interface in the fast growing $22B automotive electronics market worldwide.
“We look forward to having Mobiveil support Spansion’s HyperBus memory solutions,” said Jackson Huang, vice president of product marketing and ecosystem at Spansion. “Combining the high performance MirrorBit® architecture with the low pin-count nature of the HyperBus interface, Spansion’s HyperFlash memory achieves the industry’s highest read throughput, up to 333 megabytes per second. That’s more than five times faster than ordinary quad SPI flash currently available with one-third the pin-count of parallel flash. The balance of high performance and low pin-count makes HyperFlash memories especially attractive for applications, including automotive instrument clusters, infotainment/navigation systems and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).”
The new HyperBus controller is part of Mobiveil’s High Speed Serial Interconnect family of IP solutions that also includes Gen3/2 PCI Express, Gen3/2 RapidIO, NVM Express, DDR4/3, LPDDR3/2, NAND Flash Controller, 10G/1G Ethernet MACs PCI Express Bridge and Switch solutions. Mobiveil IP offers the most feature-rich, power-efficient, highly interoperable and silicon-proven solutions for different form factors to provide the optimum balance between power and performance.
“Mobiveil is excited to be licensing and providing support for Spansion’s HyperBus controller,” said Ravi Thummarukudy, CEO of Mobiveil. “Our experience designing high-speed interfaces up to 15 gigabits per second enables us to support the unique requirements of integrating the HyperBus controller into SoC designs. In addition, our design team has extensive background creating highly configurable silicon IP that can be easily incorporated into processor and flash memory-based automotive applications.”
IC Insights in its report “Automotive IC Market to Display Strongest Growth Through 2018,” released in November last year, declares, “from luxury to base models, IC content on all new cars is increasing.” The Scottsdale, AZ-based Market research firm expects the automotive IC market, predicted to be worth $21.7B in 2014, will experience a compound annual growth rate of 10.8 percent for 2013 to 2018. “The strong CAGR for automotive ICs is partly due to a steady and significant increase in IC content expected onboard all new cars throughout the forecast period. Vehicle-to-vehicle communications, mandatory backup cameras, and various driver assist systems will keep the automotive IC market dynamic through 2018.”
