|S3DCC51XGF18 ||DC/DC Converter ||GF 180nm|
|S3AD71M10BT55G ||10-bit 71Msps ADC ||TSMC 55nm G|
|S3AD54MD12BT65D ||12-bit 54Msps ADC ||TSMC 65nm LP|
|S3DA300M12BCH65LPEA ||12-bit 300Msps DAC ||GF 65nm LPe|
|S3REG25016T65L ||250mA Voltage Regulator LDO ||TSMC 65nm LP|
|S3PLLFRACT65 ||Fractional PLL ||TSMC 65nm LP|
|S3ADIQ19M14BC18 ||14-bit 19Msps Pipeline ADC ||TSMC 180nm|
|S3RFMXWT18 ||RF Mixer ||TSMC 180nm|
The cores are being used in applications such as DVB-C2/S2 Demodulators, System Power Management Unit ICs, wireless and wireline communications, LTE and Satellite Transceivers. The majority of the IP blocks delivered by S3 Group typically leverage its existing extensive IP portfolio and customize these for specific customer requirements. S3 Group's customization capability is based on proven design methodologies, strong adherence to design process and highly professional project management. These capabilities enable the company to efficiently and repeatedly deliver right-first-time analog, RF and Mixed-Signal components in silicon.
"We have a healthy obsession with delivering value and quality to our customers and gaining and maintaining their trust is of paramount importance to us. While 2012 was another excellent year for S3 Group, our world-class engineering team is committed to continuing the expansion of a high quality IP portfolio which can be easily integrated into SoCs and is ready for production," commented Dermot Barry, VP Silicon BU, S3 Group. "Some of the world's largest fabless semiconductor companies, as well as many ambitious start-ups trust S3 Group with the delivery of key Mixed-Signal IP cores and our ambition is to maintain our position as a leading independent supplier, while others exit the market.
