Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Silicon-proven core helps achieve Certainty with Time-To-Market and flexible function realization of System-on-Chip
Bangalore, INDIA, Campbell, California -- December 22, 2009 -- Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of differentiated Analog and Mixed-Signal IP cores, announced that FineArch Inc, an LSI provider for mobile entertainment devices, realized success with Analog IP cores licensed from Cosmic.
As a company offering silicon-proven Analog IP cores, Cosmic Circuits enables its customers achieve the optimal levels of Analog integration into their nanometer system-on-chips, while maximizing the certainty of success with chip integration, time-to-market and chip-cost goals.
FineArch Inc is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, and are innovators in processor and LSI designs for mobile entertainment. The success of this engagement is yet another example of the several leading applications using differentiated Analog IP from Cosmic.
Commenting on this partnership, Dr. Ken Ohta, CEO of FineArch commented, “We required silicon-proven Analog-IP to integrate into our ASIC designed in an advanced technology node. Cosmic Circuits was ready with proven silicon IP that we could leverage. Their IP was compact and flexible, and the SOC integration went very smooth”. He further added, “The IP worked first-pass on our Silicon and enabled us to deliver to our customers. In the competitive market that we are in, certainty in achieving time-to-market and quality is very important for us, while not sacrificing on differentiation. Cosmic was a perfect fit for us”.
The CEO of Cosmic Circuits, Ganapathy Subramaniam, commented that “We are happy to see a customer such as FineArch using our Analog IP and meet their chip development goals successfully”, and added that “With our broad portfolio of proven nanometer analog IP cores and the level of expertise and proactive support that we offer, we continue to demonstrate certainty of customer success with use of our differentiated cores”.
Cosmic Circuits constantly endeavors to bring differentiated and quality Analog and Mixed-Signal IP cores to the design-community for integration on system-on-Chips. Cosmic’s recently announced the availability of cores in advanced nodes such as 40nm, in addition to 65nm and older technology nodes. The technology families that are available include data-converters, power-management, clocking, Audio analog, chip-to-chip low-power interfaces, and general purpose functions.
