January 4 2012 -- lymouth, UK - Moortec Semiconductor Ltd., provider of analog IP and semiconductor design services, are to extend their embedded temperature sensor IP range to Global Foundries' 28nm technology. The IP, which is already available on TSMC's standard 65nm, 40nm and 28nm CMOS technologies, is typically applied for ASIC performance optimization, thermal management, device reliability, temperature sensing during device qualification (or burn-in) and device security.
“As silicon geometries shrink, on-chip temperature monitoring has become vital to optimize performance and to increase IC longevity,” said Stephen Crosher, managing director of Moortec Semiconductor. “We are now committed to extending our IP offering to Global Foundries, which will further underline our position as a key vendor for this category of IP.”
Moortec, established in 2005, provide high quality analog and mixed-signal IP blocks as well as Custom Chip solutions world-wide for a variety of applications. The UK based design group also provide Platforms for IC test and evaluation. Having a track record of delivery to tier-1 semiconductor and product companies, Moortec provide a quick and efficient path to market for customer products and innovations.
