Atmel Corp. and Global Unichip (GUC) are jointly developing SoCs for their mutual clients, with Atmel's AT91CAP ARM-based customisable MCU as the technology platform. The agreement calls for Global Unichip to translate customers' designs into netlists for the metal-programmable portion of the CAP. Netlists will be mapped onto a CAP emulation board for validation before being transferred to Atmel for place and route and metal programming.

Michel Le Lan, marketing director for ASIC products at Atmel, commented, "Global Unichip is a welcome addition to the growing CAP family of expert design centres and IP providers. Global Unichip's depth of ASIC and SoC design expertise, coupled with its worldwide presence with a strong focus in China, will strengthen our penetration into this strategic region, to win and support new CAP clients."

"Atmel's CAP customisable MCU family is a perfect complementary solution to our cell-based ASIC solution. The CAP family is perfect to answer customer's need to reduce risk and accelerate the time to market with lower upfront NRE in application segments with lower volume during the product life cycle", said Keh-Ching Huang, marketing director of Global Unichip.
