Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Low power & compact foot-print 14 bit cores for monitoring and communication applications
Bangalore, INDIA and Campbell, California, 14th February, 2011:- Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of differentiated Analog and Mixed-Signal IP cores, today announced its portfolio of 14 bit Analog to Digital Converters (ADC) for Measuring and Communication applications.
These include a 50MSPS Analog to Digital Converter for use in radar and communication applications. The ADC achieves 71.5dB signal-to-noise (SNR) ratio and supports under-sampling with minimal loss in SNR. The low-speed ADC operates at 1-2MSPS and achieves < +/- 7 LSBs of absolute error and is ideally suited for measurement applications. These silicon-proven IP cores are available in the 130nm process node.
Cosmic Circuits offers a broad portfolio of differentiated Analog IP cores in nanometer technology nodes covering Data-Converters, Analog-Front-End platforms for Wireless and Audio, Power-Management, Clocking and MIPI Interfaces.
The Director of IP of Cosmic Circuits Sundararajan Krishnan commented that “As serious players in the data-converter IP market, we are constantly adding to our converter portfolio. These high-resolution converters are an important milestone for us as we seek to address customer needs across applications and market segments.”
