Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Bangalore, INDIA and Campbell, California, May 5, 2011:- Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of differentiated Analog and Mixed-Signal IP cores, today announced their MIPI IP development roadmap in TSMC (TWSE: 2330, NYSE: TSM) technology. As part of its arrangement with TSMC, Cosmic Circuits has silicon-proven MIPI D-PHY in TSMC 65nm and has been characterizing silicon of MIPI M-PHY in TSMC 40nm technology. Furthermore, Cosmic Circuits has launched MIPI development in TSMC 85nm and 28nm technology nodes.
Cosmic’s MIPI M-PHY supports DigRFv4, Universal Flash Storage (UFS) and Low Latency Interface (LLI) applications while the D-PHY supports the Camera and Display Serial Interface (CSI/DSI) applications.
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 Director of IP of Cosmic Circuits, Sundararajan Krishnan, said “We are contributor members with the MIPI alliance group and are committed to providing MIPI solutions in various technology nodes. We also work closely with our controller partners to provide our customers with a complete (PHY + controller) solution. Our MIPI solutions are getting integrated in to the SoC’s of leading fabless companies around the world and we expect to see increased adoption of our solutions as we continue to expand our portfolio. Application boards with the Cosmic Circuits MPHY test-chip and the controller on FPGA are available upon request to select customers.”
About Cosmic Circuits
Cosmic Circuits is a leading provider of differentiated Analog, Mixed-Signal silicon IP cores and Analog ASICs. Cosmic offers a strong portfolio of 300+ cores in nanometer process nodes of leading foundries. By leveraging its silicon-proven cores spanning data-converters, wireless analog, audio, MIPI, power-management, Clocking, LVDS and Auxiliary functions, Cosmic provides single-stop access to customized IP solutions for mixed-signal SOCs and custom Analog ASIC solutions and brings certainty in time-to-market. A typical engagement starts with a top-level requirement document from the customer, after which Cosmic engineers define all the needed Analog IP and ASICs which will lead to an optimally partitioned analog sub-system. Cosmic Circuits has shipped many million units of ICs in production which are used in end equipment of leading brands. A large team of expert designers continually keep pace with technology nodes, standards and applications, bringing certainty to customer product continuity and differentiation. Adherence to Design-For-Manufacturing, Design-For-Test, a customer-centric approach to support that includes silicon-validation of Cosmic solutions, backed by the experience of successfully catering to 50+ world-wide customers, brings certainty to volume production.
