Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Bangalore, INDIA and Campbell, California, 22nd August 2011:-Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of Analog and Mixed Signal IP Cores and ASICs, announced today that it has entered into a partnership with Innotech, a leading distributor for EDA, IP & ASICs, to reach out to customers in Japan.
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. Many of these IP cores are needed in SoC’s designed by Japanese semiconductor companies.
Cosmic Circuits also provides custom Analog and Mixed Signal ASICs for applications including Sensor Front ends and Power management. Cosmic Circuits has strong partnerships with foundry, test development and packaging and assembly vendors to ensure the delivery of a complete turnkey solution to the customer with definite lead times and fixed costs. Cosmic has shipped many million units of ASICs which are used in leading electronic gadgets and will access the Japanese custom ASICs space through the partnership with Innotech.
Ganapathy Subramaniam, CEO of Cosmic Circuits, commented that “We are very excited to engage with Innotech in Japan. Innotech is one of the few distributors that specialize in selling both ASICs & IP and has extensive reach with customers across the country. As many of the Japanese companies are opting to be Fab-lite in 28nm and further since Japan is a major market for ASICs, we expect this relationship will help fuel our revenue growth”
Makoto Sumita, President & CEO of Innotech Corporation of Innotech, commented that “We are happy that Cosmic Circuits chose us as their sales partners for Japan. Cosmic Circuits is a well known brand name with Japanese semiconductor companies. Cosmic’s focus of one-stop solution for Analog by offering IP in deep submicron and companion chip in ASIC model aligns perfectly with our business focus. We expect to grow this business many times in the next few years”
