Virage to market AMD IP to third parties

Posted on Saturday, January 31 2009 @ 14:21:16 CET by

The Inquirer reports AMD has made an intellectual property (IP) deal with Virage:
Virage and AMD will start by collaborating on a gen-2 PCI-Express interface, an HDMI/DisplayPort interface, and a MIPI core, all of which will come in either 65 nm or 40 nm flavours and were developed for internal use by ATI. Virage will purportedly take the cores - designed for standard bulk CMOS - make them commercialisation-ready as for-sale third-party IP and then market them.

The move could herald in a whole new era for the third-party intellectual property (IP) business, and it doesn't hurt AMD to be able to cash in on a bit of extra revenue to boot. But it seems there may be more to the concept than immediately meets the eye.
