Santa Clara, California, USA - April 23, 2014- M31 Technology Corp., a global silicon IP boutique, participated in the TSMC 2014 North America Technology Symposium with the theme of "M31, the force of Art and Science" and displayed a variety of innovative IP solutions.
Science begins with observation and develops through reasoning. Art begins with faith and develops through observation. Both are in pursuit of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty, which is M31 Boutique's aspiration and momentum of developing premium IPs. Equipped with solid scientific foundation, M31’s strong R&D team has developed various silicon IP solutions well received by customers through high quality product development flow and close collaboration with world-class semiconductor companies. Attendees of the symposium were highly impressed by the exhibited USB3.0 PHY IP, MIPI M-PHY IP for mobile applications, MACHTM series for performance optimization of CPU and GPU, and 55nm embedded-flash IP, etc.
Mr. H.P. Lin, M31 Technology's Chairman, stated, "The momentum of combining Art and Science is without limits. Many great scientists and artists possess both rationality and sensibility, and calmness together with passion. In pursuit of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty, they innovate and make contributions continuously. Similarly, M31 Technology is devoted to providing IPs with differentiated key specifications, building high quality product development flow, and opening up new prospect for the combination of art and science.” M31 Technology has been aggressively investing in the development and validation of different types of silicon IPs in advanced process technologies, and providing customers with differentiated IP solutions. These solutions will help customers grab market opportunities through shortening design cycles, reducing manufacturing cost, and increasing product competitiveness.
M31 Technology has strived for shaping the culture and mentality of IP boutique since its establishment in 2011. In addition to creating a working space with aesthetics, art and humanity, the company has also encouraged R&D colleagues to bring forth innovation proposals and submit applications for domestic and international patents. M31 Technology's USB products have continuously passed USB-IF compliance tests since 2012; its product development process has been ISO 9001 certified since 2013; and, at the end of 2013 M31 received from TSMC the "New Emerging IP Provider" award. The company’s research and development results have been recognized by the industry at home and abroad.
M31 Technology's participation in the TSMC North America Technology Symposium includes the events in San Jose, California on April 22, Boston on April 29, and Austin, Texas on May 1. In San Jose's Conference Center on April 22, M31 Technology exhibited two pieces of works of a Taiwanese artist, Mr. Yu Wen-fu, namely, "Van Gough" and "Stay hungry. Stay foolish." The works utilized Chinese landscape brushwork and feathers to transform traditional two-dimensional landscape paintings to three-dimensional images and meanings. This novel approach exactly signifies M31 Technology's innovation mindset and its strong belief of striving for becoming a silicon IP boutique.
