Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Cosmic Circuits (May 23, 2013)
Bangalore, INDIA and Campbell, California, 03rd October, 2012:-Cosmic Circuits, a leading provider of differentiated Analog, Mixed-Signal IP cores today announced the availability of its DigRFv4 solution.
Cosmic Circuits offers a broad portfolio of differentiated analog, mixed-signal and connectivity IP cores in nanometer technology nodes. The analog and mixed-signal 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.
The DigRFv4 solution includes the DigRFv4 controller along with the MIPI M-PHY. Cosmic’s M-PHY is proven in several technologies including multiple flavors of 28nm. The complete solution (DigRFv4 controller + M-PHY) has been integrated in a modem platform and interoperability with an RFIC has been verified. The application platform integrates the M-PHY silicon on a daughter card with the DigRFv4 controller emulated on an FPGA. Cosmic has successfully licensed this technology to both modem companies and RFIC companies. These application platforms are now available to customers on request.
Sundararajan Krishnan, Director of IP at Cosmic Circuits, commented that “The MIPI M-PHY standard is becoming the PHY-of-choice for mobile applications and we are very excited about our strong roadmap that includes providing the M-PHY in multiple technologies and the controllers for the many different applications in a mobile platform. We are very happy that we can now offer customers a complete DigRFv4 solution and will be expanding this offering in the coming months.”
