Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Bangalore, INDIA and Campbell, California, 28th May, 2012:-Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of Analog and Mixed-Signal Silicon IP Cores announced that Gainspan,a leader in low power embedded Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi connectivity has licensed Cosmic’s IP for use in its product development.
Cosmic Circuits offers a broad portfolio of differentiated Analog, mixed-signal (AMS) and Connectivity IP cores in nanometer technology nodes. The AMS IPs cover the areas of Data-Converters, Analog-Front-End platforms for Wireless and Audio, Power-Management and Clocking while the Connectivity solutions target the MIPI D-PHY and M-PHY based applications, USB 3.0, USB2.0, PCIe and HDMI.Cosmic Circuits has a portfolio of more than 300+ cores covering process technologies from 0.18u to 28nm.
Sundararajan Krishnan, theDirector of IP Business Unitcommented, “We are very happy to enable GainSpan with our solutions to meet their design requirements. Cosmic Circuits has more than 150 cores available in 65nm and below, many of which have gone through full silicon validation. Millions of ICs are shipped annually with our solutions”
Thai Nguyen, Vice President of Engineering of GainSpan commented that “We needed a partner with a wide-portfolio of Analog and Mixed Signal IP and at the same time flexible tosupport our needs. Flexibility, Customer support and availability of IP across multiple foundries make Cosmic Circuits a valuable partner for GainSpan as we continue our leadership in low power WIFI”
