Tensilica Announces Licensing Agreement with Agilent Technologies for Xtensa Processors in Imaging Applications; Broad-Access Agreement Follows Successful Deployment of Xtensa in Current Product.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Tensilica(R), Inc., the only company to automate the design of optimized application-specific configurable processors, today announced that Agilent Technologies, Inc.'s Imaging Systems Division has signed a broad technology-access agreement to license Tensilica's Xtensa V and Xtensa LX configurable processor technologies for next-generation products. This follows the successful deployment of Xtensa V processors by Agilent in several recently introduced imaging products.

"We're happy to have inked this agreement with Agilent," stated Steve Roddy, Tensilica's vice president of marketing. "In their first design, Agilent's engineers realized the tremendous benefits of using a configurable processor to speed their image processing application. Now, with much broader access to our technology, including the Xtensa LX processor, we look forward to further successful deployments of Xtensa processors in key imaging applications."
