LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.-- October 02, 2019 -- Silicon Creations, a leading supplier of high-performance analog and mixed-signal intellectual property (IP), was awarded the 2019 TSMC Open Innovation Platform® (OIP) Partner of the Year Award for Analog / Mixed-Signal IP for the third consecutive year at the recent TSMC 2019 Open Innovation Platform® (OIP) Ecosystem Forum.
Silicon Creations has collaborated with TSMC, the world’s largest dedicated semiconductor foundry, on multiple process nodes since 2006, up to and including 5nm process. The decade long collaboration has included several milestones, the latest being the shipment of over 1,000,000 production wafers containing Silicon Creations’ PLLs on 16nm FinFET and over 1,200,000 wafers on 28nm processes.
Silicon Creations PLL and SerDes IP has been used on well over 400 mass production tape-outs with over 4 million wafers shipped in processes from 7nm to 180nm. This collaboration provides customers with benefits including low risk, good yield and short time to market.
Silicon Creations’ extensive portfolio of PLL and high-speed I/O IPs has been assessed through the TSMC 9000 IP quality management program for several processes ranging from 180nm to 5nm. Along with the PLL success at TSMC, Silicon Creations recently broadened its IP support in safety critical applications and have provided ISO26262-compliant documentation packages for PLLs on 16FFC and 7FF.
“We are honored to receive this award for three consecutive years,” said Randy Caplan, executive vice-president, Silicon Creations. “We are extremely proud to be recognized as a TSMC partner. Our collaboration with TSMC on multiple process technologies has provided our mutual customers the ability to successfully design and deliver the next generation of electronic products.”
