San Jose, CA, June 2, 2014 . Analog Bits , the semiconductor industry's leading provider of mixed-signal IP (Intellectual Property) solutions, announced the release of FinFET Design Kits to enable customers with the use of mixed-signal technology on TSMC's latest 16nm process. Analog Bits' FinFET Design Kits support a variety of IP products including: SERDES, PLLs and on-chip Sensors for process, voltage and temperature for silicon devices to be manufactured at 16nm.
Commenting from the Design Automation Conference, Mahesh Tirupattur, Analog Bits' Executive Vice President said: "The 16nm FinFET process is the latest in advanced semiconductor manufacturing from TSMC, the leading foundry supplier in our industry. We have partnered with TSMC to enable a wide range of new products on this exciting and advanced manufacturing node through the creation of FinFET Design Kits for mixed-signal IP."
Analog Bits also supports the recently announced 16nm FinFET plus, which TSMC describes as "offering a 15% speed improvement and 30% total power reduction over the earlier version at the same speed." Analog Bits' Design Kits for this are also available now.
Analog Bits develops, delivers and supports industry-leading, mixed signal IP solutions. The current product portfolio includes energy-efficient and low-area SERDES, PVT sensors, ultralow- jitter clocks, memory interfaces and I/Os, available on every mainstream manufacturing process. Customersf applications span a wide range including: high-volume consumer products, energy- efficient servers and advanced telecommunications equipment - all leveraging Analog Bits' highly differentiated IP products.
