Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Bangalore, INDIA and Campbell, California, 16th January, 2012:-Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of Analog and Mixed Signal IP Cores and ASICs today announced that Silicon Harmony, a leading supplier of ASIC solutions & services for the Korean market has licensed a clocking solution from Cosmic Circuits in 65nm technology.
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. Cosmic has PLL Solutions in most of the technology nodes starting from 0.18um to 28nm.
Sundararajan Krishnan, Director of IP at Cosmic Circuits, commented that “We are very excited to engage with Silicon Harmony with our silicon proven PLL in 65nm. We are committed to providing customers with extensive choice on our PLL portfolio. We are one of the few IP companies that have made significant investments in a silicon characterization lab and provide our customers with detailed test-chip characterization reports of PLL thereby increasing their confidence to adopt our solutions.”
JD Kim, CEO of Silicon Harmony commented that “We were looking for a Silicon proven PLL and found the right partner with Cosmic Circuits and were also happy to see their roadmap extending to 28nm. We are delighted with the support we have received and plan to engage with Cosmic for our future needs”
