IPFlex, Fujitsu Get Reconfigurable

TOKYO -- IPFlex Inc. and Fujitsu Limited today announced the commercial release of their jointly developed processor, the DAP/DNAR-2 (Digital Application Processor/Distributed Network Architecture), which features a unique ability to dynamically reconfigure its internal circuitry. Employing the newly developed processor enables systems to perform multiple processing tasks with a single-chip solution that previously required several specialized chips.

The DAP/DNAR-2 is the first commercial, general-use dynamically reconfigurable processor in the world. In recent years, there has been a strong demand for logic devices that can flexibly be applied to satisfy various product specifications as well as shorten the product development time. DAP/DNA-2 offers the next-generation solution architected to meet these needs

From the early stages of DAP/DNA development, IPFlex has been building partnership with Fujitsu on the physical design and manufacturing. In December 2002, the two companies formed an equity collaboration and further tightened the relationship for their joint development work.

In December 2003, Fujitsu acquired a technology license for the dynamically reconfigurable processor from IPFlex, making Fujitsu its first strategic partner in development, manufacturing, and sales activities. The two companies plan to continue improving the performance and applicability of this technology and to extend it into Fujitsu's system-on-chip (SoC) products.

The DAP/DNA-2 is the first product to use dynamic reconfiguration technology, enabling customers to accelerate their product development cycle and reduce their development costs.
