Six customer design wins for Memoir’s Renaissance IP cores on TSMC 16FF

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 2, 2014Memoir Systems Inc., today announced availability of its Renaissance soft memory IP cores for TSMC’s 16nm FinFET (16FF) designs and that it has six customer design wins with a few of them nearing tape out on this leading edge process node. In addition to using Memoir’s 2X, 4X and 10X IP, many of these customers are using Memoir’s Renaissance for Datacom. This product addresses the needs of customers building terabit networking hardware for next generation datacenters, high performance switches and routers, software defined networks (SDN) and cloud infrastructure.

“Memoir’s Renaissance Memory IP cores built on TSMC’s 16FF library provide a unique value proposition for customers targeting next generation high performance applications,” said Sundar Iyer, CEO at Memoir. “These cores are being used in designs that will fuel the next generation’s terabit compute infrastructure with memory subsystem performance requirements of up to 16X more memory operations per second.”

Memoir supports TSMC COT customers directly and through the many TSMC ASIC vendors. It is a proud member of the TSMC IP Alliance Program, which is a key component of TSMC Open Innovation Platform® (OIP), and includes major and leading IP companies. Alliance members are ranked based on their contribution to the TSMC ecosystem in terms of providing the best possible design experience, easiest design reuse and the fastest integration into the overall design system. Memoir was recently elevated to be an IP Alliance Incubator Member.

“Over the last year, we have worked diligently to build a complete 16FF eco-system. We are delighted to be working with Memoir to deliver the full benefits of TSMC's latest and most advanced process,” says Suk Lee, Senior Director of Design Infrastructure Marketing Division, TSMC. “We congratulate them on their early design wins on 16FF and regard them as a valued member of our TSMC IP Alliance Program.”
