OPENEDGES and VisioNexT Shapes the Future of Vision AI SoCs
Seoul, South Korea, September 19th, 2023 --- OPENEDGES Technology, Inc. (OPENEDGES), a leading silicon IP provider, is proud to announce its extensive memory subsystem IP licensing partnership with VisioNexT. As a spin-off from Hanwha Techwin, VisioNexT is a highly recognized global leader in AI SoC fabless semiconductors with a proven track record of developing high-quality products with exceptional performance, advanced features, and competitive pricing. OPENEDGES offers an integrated IP solution that includes DDR PHY, DDR memory controller, NoC interconnect, and NPU.
VisioNexT specializes in the development and manufacturing of intelligent vision Systems-on-Chips (SoCs), which are applied to diverse applications such as surveillance, autonomous driving, and industrial automation. As a demonstration of their confidence in OPENEDGES’ expertise, VisioNexT (formerly Hanwha Techwin) has engaged in three licensing agreements since 2018 for OPENEDGES’ memory subsystem IPs, including the DDR PHY, the DDR memory controller, and the Network-On-Chip Interconnect IPs. Through the accumulated licensing agreements, VisioNexT reaffirms its confidence in OPENEDGES’ integrated IP solutions’ reliability, performance, and scalability.
OPENEDGES’ memory subsystem IP platform introduces a paradigm shift, optimizing memory subsystems across extended metrics such as memory bandwidth, DRAM capacity, cost economics, PHY area, power consumption, and beyond. This strategic approach ensures comprehensive trade-off at the system or platform level, thereby enhancing the development of high-performance SoCs tailored for applications ranging from surveillance to automotive systems.
