Leading analog IP innovator brings configurable, multi-node analog IP portfolio to TSMC design ecosystem.
Cambridge. UK. 5 September 2023. Agile Analog, the customizable analog IP company, has become a member of the TSMC IP Alliance Program, a key component of the TSMC Open Innovation Platform® (OIP). The complete range of Agile Analog’s innovative analog IP is now available to TSMC customers, covering data conversion, power management, security, IC monitoring, and always-on-domains.
The TSMC IP Alliance includes major IP companies from across the world and provides the semiconductor industry’s most comprehensive catalog of silicon-verified and production-proven IP solutions for the TSMC technologies. As the industry’s most comprehensive and vibrant design ecosystem, the TSMC OIP ensures the optimal design experience, easiest design reuse and fastest integration to accelerate innovation in semiconductor design.
Chris Morrison, Director of Product Marketing at Agile Analog comments: “We are delighted to be joining such an elite group of global IP companies in the TSMC IP Alliance. In recent years we have delivered IPs on a variety of TSMC processes for customers. As part of the OIP ecosystem, we can now access the PDKs and bring our entire analog IP portfolio to TSMC process technologies – from high power BCD nodes to standard planar nodes, and the latest advanced process technologies.”
Chris continues: “It’s exciting that our products are being used for novel applications across a wide-range of sectors, including; automotive, AI, High Performance Computing (HPC), and IoT. Demand for data conversion and power management solutions is extremely high at the moment, so we expect our ADC, DAC, and LDO products in particular will help to drive semiconductor innovation.”
Barry Paterson, CEO at Agile Analog, concludes: “We are delighted to be collaborating closely with TSMC. Our OIP membership enables us to better serve our growing array of global customers, especially those in the areas of AI and HPC working on the most advanced nodes.”
