Utilizing EnSilica’s eSi-RISC processor, Solomon Systech’s SSD2098 Touch and Display Driver Integration (TDDI) IC targets FHD In-Cell LTPS panels for smartphones Wokingham, UK – August 10, 2017. EnSilica, a leading independent provider of semiconductor solutions and IP, and Solomon Systech, a leading provider of touch and display ICs and system solutions, have entered into a multi-year licensing agreement for EnSilica’s range of highly-configurable, high-performance, and low-power eSi-RISC processor IP. The multi-year licensing agreement covers the full range of EnSilica’s 16 bit and 32 bit eSi-RISC processor IP and extends the existing, successful relationship between the two companies to cover multiple projects and multiple architecture implementations.

EnSilica’s eSi-RISC processor IP has been adopted by Solomon Systech to power several of its smart touch screen controllers and drivers. Headquartered in Hong Kong with additional technology centers throughout Asia (China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan) and in Europe (United Kingdom), Solomon Systech operates on a fabless business model. The company specializes in the design, development and sales of proprietary IC products that enable a wide range of display applications for smartphones, tablets, smart TVs/monitors, notebooks and other smart devices, including wearables, healthcare devices, connected home devices, as well as industrial appliances, etc. [Continue reading →]

Block diagram of EnSilica\'s new eSi-ZM1 System-on-Module Wokingham, UK – 29th May 2013. EnSilica, a leading independent provider of IC design services and system solutions, has launched the eSi-ZM1, a small form factor System-on-Module designed to facilitate faster, lower risk development of smarter embedded systems that demand real-time hardware performance, all without sacrificing differentiation, integration or flexibility.

The eSi-ZM1 is EnSilica’s first product in a new range of eSi-Modules and is built around the Xilinx Zynq Extensible Programming Platform. Combining a powerful dual core ARM Cortex A9 MPcore subsystem running embedded Linux together with the Xilinx Series-7 FPGA fabric, it is ideal for developing a range of commercial and industrial applications for automotive electronics, consumer electronics, industrial automation, broadcast, medical imaging and wired communications. However, the small form factor, low-cost, high pin count, robust connector, together with availability in commercial and industrial temperature grades, makes it ideal for both volume production and prototyping of a wide range of Xilinx Zynq-based products. The eSi-ZM1 measures just 82mm by 50mm and is currently being successfully deployed in a number of production products including a radar and media server.[Continue reading →]

Wokingham, UK and Warsaw, Poland – 28th January 2013. EnSilica and Phoenix Systems have announced that they have successfully ported the Phoenix-RTOS, designed specifically for both single and multicore embedded systems applications, to the eSi-RISC family of highly configurable soft processor cores. The collaboration between EnSilica and Phoenix Systems further expands the eSi-RISC ecosystem with an embedded RTOS capable of fully utilising eSi-RISC’s hardware MMU with memory protection and security features such as data execution protection. It also paves the way for embedded power line and wireless smart grid solutions with the combination of Phoenix Systems’ proposed smart grid software protocol stacks and eSi-RISC’s support for custom instructions accelerating performance and improving PHY layer implementations.

Phoenix Systems’ Phoenix-RTOS is a state-of-the-art, fully proprietary, real-time operating system designed specifically for both single and multicore embedded applications. Its modularity and portability, coupled with a small footprint, virtual memory support and an advanced architecture that implements the latest operating system mechanisms and programming abstractions, ideally suit it to use with highly configurable soft processor cores like the eSi-RISC family. The fully re-entrant and pre-emptive kernel supports scheduling strategies that allow for the prioritization of critical task execution. Additional components, such as TCP/IP and USB stacks, common file systems and POSIX interface, further leverage its potential for machine-to-machine communication and smart grid applications.[Continue reading →]
