Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Bangalore, INDIA and Campbell, California, 9th February, 2011:- Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of differentiated Analog and Mixed-Signal IP cores, today announced the tape out of its clocking solutions in 28nm.
Cosmic Circuits offers a broad portfolio of differentiated Analog IP cores in nanometer technology nodes covering Data-Converters, Analog-Front-End platforms for Wireless and Audio, Power-Management, Clocking and MIPI Interfaces.
The system-clocking PLLs are implemented in 28SLP process technology, and will offer SoC designers a wide range of analog and digital PLLs to choose from – these include PLLs that support input frequencies ranging from 32 kHz- 2200 MHz without requiring any external components, PLLs that occupies extremely low core area, and spread-spectrum PLLs for EMI suppression.
The Director of IP of Cosmic Circuits Sundararajan Krishnan commented that “We are very committed to a PLL roadmap that extends into the advanced process nodes and this tape-out is a significant milestone for us. We have taken a lot of care in specifying the features of these IPs to offer our SoC customers with ample choice in PLL selection”.
