Eureka Technology Inc., a provider of system connectivity IP cores and embWiSe, an off-the-shelf SD/SDIO software provider, announced a partnership of software and hardware solution to their customers.

The combination of Eureka's SD/SDIO/MMC controller and Chennai-based embWiSe's SDIOWorx software is a proven solution in current customers' production.

"A complete SD design requires close integration between hardware and software", said Simon Lau, president of Eureka Technology. "This silicon proven solution offers compatibility, superior performance and highly customisable system for FPGA and SoC/ASIC applications. Our design has been tested extensively with available SD devices so our customers do not need to worry about interoperability between hardware, software and spec conformance", he added.

"We have achieved a high throughput performance with our SDIO drivers on Eureka's SD/SDIO IP core based SD Host Controllers for storage and SDIO-WiFi. We are positive that our collaborative hardware-software solutions will significantly add value to our customers, in terms of reduced engineering and time-to-market costs, in addition to high system throughput," said G. Srinivasan, managing director of embWiSe.

The Eureka SD/SDIO IP cores include system host controller and card (slave) controller IP cores. Each IP core is highly configurable to meet different system design requirements. Many features are offered to ease system integration and provide very high system throughput. Both IP cores conform to the SD 2.0 standard and is also compatible with MultiMediaCard standard.

embWiSe offers SDIOWorx which includes: the SD Host Driver, SDIO Stack, SD/SDHC Storage Drivers and SDIO-WiFi Driver Software for popular WLAN technologies. SDIOWorx, with its support for several host processors and leading embedded OS platforms like Linux, ThreadX, Nucleus and uITRON, targets the mobile communications, mobile CE and other digitally converged devices market.
