Available at TSMC, UMC, GLOBALFOUNDRIES and SMIC
San Francisco, USA, June 8, 2015 – SILICONGATE LDA, a specialized supplier of Power Management IP for ASIC/SoC, today started demonstrating the 3rd generation DC/DC converter at the 52nd DAC in San Francisco, with a TSMC28HPM DC/DC. At the show, a demonstration test setup allows visitors to verify the DC/DC converter performance and to compare it with another market DC/DC.
SILICONGATE keeps improving its IPs performance and introducing new Power Management IPs. The third generation offers more control options and higher performance allowing the customers to select the best control configurations via software and reducing the pressure for complete definition before tapeout.
"Output coil and capacitor definition is no longer an issue”, said Floriberto Lima, CEO of SiliconGate. “This is a real advantage for customers, we have already two customers that, after TO, received requests from the market to change for smaller lower value components and we have been able to support that by just providing new software configurations.”
SILICONGATE portfolio includes: Ultra-Fast Response DC/DC converter; Nano Power RTC and Oscillator; Very High PSRR General Purpose LDO; Low Noise LDO; Differential Feedback Capless Regulator; Temperature ADC; Monitor ADC; Low Power Crystal Oscillator; Low Power RC Oscillator and Ultra Low Noise Crystal Oscillator.
SILICONGATE offers its cores in TSMC, UMC, GLOBALFOUNDRIES and SMIC, from 65 nm down to 28nm.
