Keywords:Peter Clarke  Transmeta  LongRun2  Toshiba  processor 

Transmeta Corp., a processor developer that lost out on a deal in China recently, said that it has licenced its LongRun2 technologies for reducing power consumption to Japan's Toshiba Corp.

The agreement allows Toshiba to use Transmeta's LongRun2 technologies for selected application areas in the 90nm through 22-nm CMOS process generations. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

A few days earlier, Transmeta has said U.S. technology export controls forced it to cancel a previously agreed sale and licencing deal with Culture.com Technology Ltd, a subsidiary of Culturecom Holdings Ltd of Hong Kong. The deal, which covered the sale of Transmeta's Crusoe x86 processor and the licencing of Transmeta's Efficeon 130nm processor technology had been valued at more than Rs.66.38 crore ($15 million).

LongRun2 controls transistor leakage, using less area than previous methods, and improves the operating characteristics of semiconductor devices, Transmeta claimed. LongRun2 can help adjust leakage dynamically to provide both for the lowest standby power and for adjustment of performance and power during chip operation.
