Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Bangalore, INDIA and Campbell -- California, 05th June, 2012 -- Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of differentiated Analog, Mixed-Signal and Connectivity IP cores, today announced that its MIPI M-PHY HS-G2 reference cards have been used by Agilent Technologies for the development of their MIPI transmitter measurement solution. The test solution is designed to perform MIPI M-PHY measurements automatically, saving time for the end-user.
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 M-PHY solution supports both the HS-G1 (1.5Gbps) and HS-G2 (3Gbps) modes and is available in multiple process technologies. Cosmic Circuits provided pre-tested MIPI M-PHY reference cards to Agilent and worked very closely with the engineers at Agilent in validating the performance of this test platform.
"We are delighted to use the Cosmic Circuits’ M-PHY for the development of our MIPI transmitter measurement solution," said Roland Scherzinger, Agilent's MIPI program manager. "Collaboration between early adopters of M-PHY is essential for providing robust solutions even before the new standard and its testing specification are mature."The Director of IP of Cosmic Circuits, Sundararajan Krishnan, commented that “We are very excited to engage with Agilent on this development and are happy that this effort has seen fruition in the form of the MIPI M-PHY test suite. Our MIPI D-PHY and M-PHY solutions are getting integrated into the SoCs of leading fabless companies around the world and given our strong roadmap that extends into the very advanced process nodes, we expect to see even more adoption. Application boards with our test-chip are available upon request to customers”
