Freescale Opens Licensing of ColdFire
Semiconducter developer and manufacturer Freescale Opens Licensing of ColdFire(R) Microcontroller Architecture to Embedded Customers.
Freescale Semiconductor has initiated a ColdFire(R) licensing program for the embedded design community. Licensing ColdFire technology gives customers design flexibility using a proven technology with nearly three decades of development. The V2 ColdFire core is available for licensing through IPextreme Inc., semiconductor intellectual property (IP) licensing specialists. Specifically, IPextreme plans to market, sell and support the V2 ColdFire core to system-on-chip (SoC) designers seeking to integrate the core and other functions onto a single chip. Freescale plans to open licensing to additional ColdFire cores in 2007 and beyond.
