Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Taiwan based SOC design-platform and service provider licensed multiple Analog IP from Cosmic for certainty in time-to-market
Bangalore, INDIA, Campbell, California -- January 13, 2010 -- Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of differentiated Analog and Mixed-Signal IP cores, today announced that Socle Technology, a Taiwan headquartered provider of System-on-Chip platform based design-services, has realized success with multiple chip designs integrating 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.
As a company offering a broad portfolio of nanometer Analog IP cores covering Data-Converters, Analog-Front-End platforms for Wireless and Audio, Power-Management, Clocking and low-power Connectivity, Cosmic makes it possible for system-on-chip design companies to source a variety of differentiated analog IP. Socle Technology has, over multiple designs, leveraged Cosmic’s ability to customize and support effectively, while benefiting from the certainty that Cosmic’s silicon-validated analog IP brings to System-on-Chip development.
Commenting on this partnership, Wuhan Lu, VP of Product Marketing Division for Socle commented, “We achieved customer projects’ successes of nanometer system-on-chips using Cosmic’s IP cores, and Cosmic enabled many of our differentiated analog needs quite effectively. The consumer convergence markets that our customers are after puts pressure on us and our IP suppliers to reduce die-size, even while integrating more of the BOM components. Over many engagements, we found Cosmic delivering consistently, helping us meet our cost and time-to-market goals with certainty”. He further added, “Their expertise in analog, their strong portfolio, and their strong customer-orientation have been the reasons behind our continual engagements. We look forward to more such partnerships with Cosmic”.
The CEO of Cosmic Circuits, Ganapathy Subramaniam, commented that “Socle realizing repeated successes partnering with Cosmic is a vindication of our strategy of offering a broad portfolio of differentiated nanometer analog IP, and helping our customers meet their analog integration and time-to-market goals efficiently”. He added that “We are happy to be partnering with Socle who is a leader in platform based ASIC/SoC design-services. Such successes spur us on to invest further in differentiated analog cores and help SOC designers achieve certainty in their design-cycle”.
Cosmic Circuits constantly endeavors to bring differentiated and silicon-proven Analog and Mixed-Signal IP cores to the design-community for integration on system-on-Chips. A majority of the nanometer cores available from Cosmic are suited for portable and fixed consumer, wireless, and convergence applications, as well as other emerging markets.
