Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Bangalore, INDIA and San Jose, California, 12th Oct 2012:-Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of differentiated Analog, Mixed-Signal and Connectivity IP cores and GDA Technologies, a leading supplier of IP for communications, storage and consumer markets, today announced asuccessful partnership on the MIPI UniPro/M-PHY solution.
Cosmic Circuits offers a broad portfolio of differentiated analog, mixed-signal and connectivity IP cores in nanometer technology nodes. The analog and mixed-signal IPs cover the areas of Data-Converters, Analog-Front-End platforms for Wireless and Audio, Power-Management and Clocking while the connectivity solutions target the MIPI D-PHY and M-PHY based applications, USB 3.0, USB2.0, PCIe and HDMI.
GDA Technologies is a leading supplier of High Speed Interface silicon IPs. GDA leverages its rich experience in Computing & Networking domain and has developed many silicon proven, high performance, Modular and Configurable IPs. GDA brings a complete array of high quality, matured USB 3.0 and MIPI family of Digital IPsto Mobile, Storage, Consumer and PC Peripherals markets. GDA with its partner eco-system provide total solutions meeting broad range of SoC applications.GDA is part of the L&T Technology Services group offerings that aims to provide end-to-end product design capability to its customers.
The MIPI UniPro/M-PHY solution includes GDA Technologies’ UniPro controller along with the Cosmic Circuits MIPI M-PHY. Cosmic’s M-PHY is proven in several technologies including multiple flavors of 28nm. The solution has been validated on an application platform that integrates the Cosmic M-PHY silicon on a daughter card with the UniPro controller emulated on FPGA. These application platforms are now available to customers on request.
Vedamoorthy,Vice President of IP & CDMS business - GDA Technologies said, “UniPro is the backbone of next generation Mobile chip to chip interface protocol and we strive to make our UniPro Controller a High performance, Highly Configurable and Interoperable IP product. GDA technologies along with Cosmic Circuits have built a fully integrated and tested UniPro+ M-PHY solution which can be readily deployed into high complexity, time to market Mobile & Consumer SoC designs.”
Sundararajan Krishnan, Director of IP at Cosmic Circuits, commented that “The MIPI M-PHY standard is becoming the PHY-of-choice for mobile applications and we are committed to providing the M-PHY in multiple technologies and the controllers for the many different applications in a mobile platform. We are very excited that we have crossed another important milestone on our roadmap with this successful partnership."
