Hsinchu, Taiwan – October 27th, 2016 -- M31 Technology Corporation received TSMC’s “2016 Partner of the Year Award” for Specialty Technology IP at TSMC’s Open Innovation Platform Ecosystem Forum on September 22, 2016 in San Jose California.
M31 has been a member of TSMC’s IP Alliance Program since 2012 and has developed various IP for TSMC processes, ranging from 180nm to 16nm that have passed the TSMC9000 quality assessment. These IP are focused on SRAM Compilers, Standard Cell Libraries, and General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) to enable SoC designers to achieve their designs with lower power consumption, higher performance, and compact size.
In TSMC 28HPC+, 40EF, and 55ULP process technologies, M31 has developed fundamental IP specifically for IoT and wearable applications with its low power consumption characteristics. In addition, M31’s IP in TSMC 40HV, 110HV, and 152GPIIA process technologies are suitable for chips designed for LCD/LED driver and PMIC power management functions. With the advantages of high voltage (HV) and Bipolar CMOS DMOs (BCD) process technologies, these IP are the enablers for highly integrated and power efficient chips, managing the power supply to meet the needs of TV, telecommunication equipment and automotive visual display products.
“TSMC thanks M31 for its many contributions,” said Suk Lee, TSMC Senior Director, Design Infrastructure Marketing Division. "With the support of an unmatched design ecosystem, customers can develop their products – such as intelligent devices and power management devices – running in different voltage and power conditions.”
"It’s our honor to receive this Specialty Technology IP Partner Award from TSMC. This award demonstrates that M31 has been capable of providing IP solutions in multiple TSMC technology platforms," said H.P. Lin, Chairman of M31 Technology. "M31 has developed the specialty IP with its exceptional low power consumption in TSMC’s process technology. In the future, M31 will continue its IP development and validation in advanced process technologies to provide distinctive silicon IP to the worldwide chip design community.”
In addition to the fundamental IP, M31 also collaborates with TSMC to develop a series of high-speed interface IP, including MIPI, USB, PCIe and SATA, in order to meet customer requirements for various applications.
