Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Bangalore, INDIA and Campbell, California, 9th Jan 2012:- Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of Analog & Mixed Signal IP cores and ASICs today announced that its PLL solutions are being used by Enverv, a provider of advanced SoC solutions for smart grid, metering and control applications.
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 and MIPI Interfaces.
Cosmic Circuits offers a complete matrix of clocking solutions which include system PLLs, specialty PLLs, crystal oscillators and silicon oscillators and has already taped-out designs in 28nm. As part of its specialty PLL offering, Cosmic provides low-jitter and Sigma Delta Fractional-N PLLs.
Sundararajan Krishnan, Director of IP at Cosmic Circuits, commented that “We are very excited that Enverv is using our ultra low-jitter PLL. Enverv needed support for a number of different modes spanning from accepting a low reference frequency to providing ultra low-jitter and we were able to provide them with a perfect fit that suited their requirements. We continue to make significant investments in developing our clocking portfolio and expect to see many more such engagements in the near future.”
Farrokh Farrokhi, Executive VP of Engineering at Enverv commented that “We were looking for a complex PLL and Cosmic was able to provide a solution that was perfect for our needs. Cosmic is one of the few IP companies to have invested adequately in their silicon validation lab and provide silicon result which increases the confidence of the customers. This coupled with their flexibilityand customer support makes them an important partner for us.”
