Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Bangalore, INDIA and Campbell, California, 20th July 2011:-Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of Analog and Mixed Signal IP Cores and ASICs, announced today that it was partnering with Newlinktek, Korean distribution company for EDA and IP, to reach out to SoC customers in Korea.
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 & MIPI Interfaces and many of which are needed in SoC’s designed by Korean semiconductor companies.
Ganapathy Subramaniam, CEO of Cosmic Circuits, commented that “We are very excited to engage with Newlinktek in South Korea. Newlinktek has broad experience in IP sales and also has a good network with semiconductor companies and government institutions in Korea. Korea is an important market for Cosmic and we firmly believe that this partnership will strengthen the relationship we have with customers in Korea”
Young-Tae Yu, CEO of Newlinktek, commented that “We are happy Cosmic Circuits chose us as their sales partners for Korea. Korean Semiconductor companies are focused heavily on consumer electronics, an area where Cosmic has a number of solutions available. Cosmic Circuits’ wide portfolio has several solutions tailored for such applications including Analog front ends for WIFI and LTE, MIPI Interface for standards such as CSI, DSI, DigRFV4 and LLI, Phase Locked loops, Regulators and Audio front-ends. Cosmic Circuits has already taped out designs in leading edge technologies such as 28nm. This combination of focus on consumer electronics and commitment to advance technology will help Newlinktek to strengthen Cosmic’s relationship with Korean customers”
