Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Bangalore, INDIA and Campbell, California, 10th July, 2012:-Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of differentiated Analog, Mixed-Signal and Connectivity IP cores, today announced the silicon availability of its MIPI M-PHY solution in 28nm.
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 ranging from 85nm to 28nm. The silicon has been characterized across supply, temperature and process corners and detailed characterization reports will be available very soon. A video showcasing Cosmic Circuits validation platform and methodology for the MIPI M-PHY is available at http://www.design-reuse.com/video/view/54/cosmic-circuits-mipi-m-phy-demo.html
The Director of IP of Cosmic Circuits, Sundararajan Krishnan, commented that “We are very happy to extend our MIPI M-PHY offering into the advanced nodes. We have made significant investments in ensuring that we present our customers with a fully-validated solution and are one of the very few IP providers that provide a detailed characterization report for the IP cores. With the connectivity IPs, we are also offering customers with an application platform that can be used for system emulation. Application platforms with our 28nm M-PHY are now available for customers and can be provided on request.”
