Santa Clara, California -- October 05, 2011 -- Alvand Technologies a leading analog and mixed signal IP provider, today announced that it will be offering Analog Front End (AFE) IP for wireless (MIMO) applications in GLOBALFOUNDRIES' 28nm foundry process.
This announcement follows Alvand’s previously introduced MIMO AFE IP in 40LP process. This is Alvand’s fifth-generation MIMO AFE IP, having previously offered its IP in 130nm, 90nm, 65nm and 40nm process nodes. Alvand’s Wireless MIMO IP has been successfully integrated into multiple IC products by manufacturers worldwide across different foundries. MIMO AFE modules are widely integrated into SoCs that target high-bandwidth wireless applications, including Wi-Fi, Wi-MAX and LTE mobile phone transceivers.
Alvand’s highly integrated Wireless MIMO AFE IP includes two 12-bit ADC cores, two 12-bit DAC cores, one 10-bit auxiliary ADC, one 10-bit auxiliary DAC and a low-jitter PLL. The IP is designed for extremely low-power operation for companies developing next-generation devices for high-volume wireless applications. It has been successfully integrated into multiple IC products that have entered mass production at manufacturers worldwide.
Alvand is a member of the GLOBALSOLUTIONS™ program, an open and collaborative program to leverage the best IP, EDA, design services, mask making and assembly and test resources from around the world to deliver optimized solutions to the customers.
