Virage Logic's High-Efficiency DDR Memory Controller Selected by Server Virtualization Solutions Leader 3Leaf Systems
Virage Logic Corporation (NASDAQ:VIRL), the semiconductor industry's trusted IP partner and pioneer in Silicon Aware IP, today announced the selection of its Intelli Double Data Rate (DDR) Memory Controller interface solution by 3Leaf Systems, a provider of next-generation server virtualization solutions for enterprise data centers, to deliver a silicon proven, high-performance DDR memory controller IP solution.

By providing an all digital memory controller solution, and achieving maximum data throughput efficiency, Virage Logics Intelli DDR solution allowed 3Leaf Systems to reach performance levels typically only achieved by mainframes. Virage Logics ability to deliver 800Mbps with low latency and high-efficiency made the Intelli DDR solution a clear choice for the right combination of high-performance, low-power, and low-cost.

The ability to achieve the maximum performance at the minimum clock frequency was a key factor for selecting Virage Logics Intelli DDR solution," said Bob Quinn, chairman, founder, and chief technical officer of 3Leaf Systems. Optimal memory performance enhances the scalability and flexibility delivered by our industry leading server virtualization infrastructure, which delivers mainframe class features for commodity x86 platforms while drastically reducing both capital and operating costs."

Virage Logics Intelli DDR solution is an all digital implementation including the PHY and DLL that delivers smaller area, lower power, and significantly easier portability to any process node for any foundry.

"Virage Logics highly efficient Intelli DDR memory controllers allow customers to competitively differentiate their products with an all digital, silicon proven solution that does not need to be proven again at different foundries or process nodes, said Raghavan Menon, senior director of the DDR memory controller group at Virage Logic. As the semiconductor industrys trusted IP partner, Virage Logic has developed a versatile memory controller solution for reduced power at any given performance, from low-power mobile applications to high-performance networking applications.
