BaySand to Acquire FalconX Accelerator, to Enhance Its Application Configurable Platform Offering with Configurable DSP Capabilities

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BaySand, the leader in application configurable ASICs, completed the acquisition of FalconX Accelerator, a provider of low power, high performance Digital Signal Processing (DSP) IP. The addition of FalconX to BaySand will be enhancing BaySand’s IP portfolio and Application Configurable ASIC solution offering. FalconX has been developing and delivering innovative low power parallel processing technology that provides significant cost reduction and increased performance over the classic multi-core CPUs, DSP, or GPU parallel processing technologies.



“FalconX configurable DSP architecture will enable BaySand to address new markets and provide enhanced capabilities to our rapidly expanding customer base,” said Salah Werfelli, BaySand’s CEO. “BaySand is committed to providing innovative world class solution to our customers with advanced technologies for delivering sophisticated ASICs with accelerated Time To Market (TTM), and reduced development cost, while meeting performance, power and unit cost requirements.”

The FalconX technology combined with its rich portfolio of DSP algorithms and applications, delivers low power, low cost and high performance field programmable DSP solutions without jeopardizing flexibility and programmability.

“We are pleased to join the dynamic BaySand family and combine FalconX’s unique DSP capabilities with BaySand’s metal configurable standard cell technology,” said Udi Yuhjtman, FalconX Accelerator’s CEO. “DSP functionality is becoming a major requirement in emerging markets like IoT, cellular phones, smart TV and mobile devices, while the combined technologies will provide cost effective solutions with quick time to market.”

“FalconX technology is an innovative, high-throughput and size-efficient parallel processing architecture which we developed with our long experience in DSP architectures and applications,” said Asher Hazanchuk, FalconX Accelerator president and founder. "With BaySand’s unique Application Configurable Platform combined with their dynamic engineering team, we will be able to offer low power and cost effective solutions to system vendors and ASIC designers.”

The fcDSP will be available for customer evaluation end of July 2016. Please contact BaySand for evaluation or for more information at info@baysand.com.
