SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- 802.11 Planet Conference & Expo -- NewLogic, a leading supplier of intellectual property (IP) cores for wireless systems, today announced the availability of the 802.11a standard compliant OFDM Modem of its WiLD (TM) family (Wireless LAN IP for LSI Designs). The WiLD IP family consists of all the elements required for a fully integrated single chip CMOS solution designed for high performance at the lowest cost. WiLD is the name of NewLogic's new 802.11 Wireless LAN IP product family and builds on the success of the BOOST Bluetooth IP core family. The WiLD family is a complete platform for Wireless LAN IC and SOC development. The released WiLD 802.11a Modem complements the WiLD 802.11a/b/g MAC core as well as the WiLD 802.11b Modem core which both were released earlier this year. The WiLD 802.11a Modem can be combined with the 802.11a/b/g MAC core of the WiLD family or with a third party MACs to create a MAC+Modem combo IC solution. It can also be combined with the 5GHz WiLD CMOS radio on a single piece of silicon, enabling a true single chip integration of a 5GHz WLAN system. Future system splits that combine the RF part with the digital modem while the MAC functions are performed by a host system can also be accommodated. "It is great to be able to offer a complete and proven 802.11a Modem core featuring unsurpassed performance and implementation loss", said Dr. Gianmaria Mazzucchelli, General Manager of NewLogic Sophia Antipolis based design center. "A complete RTL test bench for easy SOC integration and comprehensive custom design services for the sensitive Radio-Modem interface translates to significant time-to-market advantages as well as cost reduction for our customers."
