Santa Clara, California -- January 5, 2012 --Alvand Technologies, Inc. (http://www.alvandtech.com) a leading analog and mixed signal IP provider, today announced that it is offering its ADC, DAC, MIMO and Video AFE Designs in High Performance (HP) and High Performance Mobile (HPM) of Analog IP in TSMC’s 28nm process node. The design kits are available on request for customer integration.
The Alvand analog IP portfolio includes 10, 12 and 14-bit data converters that operate at 250 MSps, 500 MSps and 1GSps. The ADC and DAC designs are optimized for low power and minimal die area.
Alvand's MIMO and VAFE subsystem IPs are now available in TSMC's 28nm processes. The 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. These IP cores are designed for extreme low-power operation.
These IP’s are the latest addition to the existing portfolio of silicon proven MIMO AFE, Video AFE and high performance data converter IPs across multiple nodes and in mass production.
