Packs high bandwidth functionality into compact footprint
Hsinchu, Taiwan -- Dec. 3, 2012- Global Unichip Corp. (GUC), the Flexible ASIC Leader, today announced that it has added a DDR3-2133/LPDDR2 combination PHY and Controller IP to its extensive portfolio of 28nm silicon-proven IP portfolio.
The new combo IP targets TSMC's 28nm HPM process and provides PHY, controller and a DDR system in a single integrated solution. The new IP features a 20% smaller footprint than similar 40nm functionality and is ideal for designs that need high DDR3-2133 bandwidth and target TSMC's 28HPM advanced process technology.
“Given the expensive 28nm real estate, designers are looking for every opportunity to pack more functionality into the smallest possible area,” explains Jim Lai, president, GUC. “This new PHY and Controller combo IP meets that demand while providing assess to TSMC's most advanced process technology.”
The key to providing Flexible ASIC Services is the ability to provide SoC integration. Designers, particularly those working at advanced technology nodes of 65nm and below, access GUC's robust high-performance in-house and third party IP portfolio that now includes the new 28nm DDR3-2133/LPDDR2 combo IP.
GUC’s in-house IP ranges from high speed SerDes, DDR, data converters, JPEG to NAND flash control. GUC IP combines flexibility and world-class performance to enable high value and high performance SoC. When off-the-shelf IP won't do, GUC customizes the macros to meet functionality, power and area requirements.
