Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Bangalore, INDIA and Campbell, California -- January 4, 2012 -- Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of differentiated Analog and Mixed-Signal IP cores, today announced the silicon availability of PLLs in multiple process technologies.
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 system-clocking PLLs are implemented in 55 and 40nm process technology, and will offer SoC designers a wide range of analog and digital PLLs to choose from – these include PLLs that support input frequencies ranging from 32 kHz- 2000 MHz without requiring any external components, PLLs that occupies extremely low core area, and spread-spectrum PLLs for EMI suppression.
The Director of IP of Cosmic Circuits Sundararajan Krishnan commented that “We are very committed to a PLL roadmap that extends into the advanced process nodes and invest a lot of time in characterizing the IPs across PVT conditions to achieve silicon proven status. We are glad that our 55 and 40nm developments have reached fruition and expect to have similar announcements on the 28nm node in the coming months. Our PLLs are being used by leading customers across the world and our detailed silicon characterization reports are available to customers on request”
