Analog Bits Launches PLL Products for Chinese Semiconductor Market

Focusing on enabling high-volume, low-cost SOC designs

Sunnyvale, CA, August 19, 2014  Analog Bits ( the semiconductor industry's leading provider of mixed-signal IP (Intellectual Property) solutions, today announced availability of a new family of core-based PLL products designed specifically for use by China's fast growing semiconductor community.  Called C-PLL, for Core-PLL, these licensable PLL cores are an extension to the successful line Analog Bits' well-proven line of TSMC IP products and are optimized for the high-volume and low-cost needs of the markets serviced by today's semiconductor designers and manufacturers. 

"Chinese semiconductor companies often focus on the highest volume markets and applications," explained Mahesh Tirupattur, Analog Bits' Executive Vice President. "As a consequence, they seek the lowest part cost - which is achieved by having minimal area. Our new C-PLLs have the smallest die size of any competing solution. Together with our no-royalty business model, this makes us the best solution for cost-sensitive devices in markets like IoT, Wearable Computing, and new Consumer and Industrial SoCs."

With oscillator frequencies of up to 4GHz, members of the C-PLL product family are also as small as .01 sq. mm with power efficiency as low as 0.5mW/GHz - which also makes them ideal for power-sensitive applications. Each has been productized on TSMC's high-volume 28nm process node, which has a large market share around the world. The C-PLL cores are initially available on TSMC's 28HPC and 28HPM process nodes and will be made available at other fabs as needed by customers. They will be available directly from Analog Bits, with downloadable design kits available. The product family will also be documented in both English and Chinese, to support the worldwide customer base.

"The Chinese GDP is projected to lead much of the rest of the world," commented Rich Wawrzyniak, Senior Market Analyst with Semico Research. "Supporting that market with products tailored for those unique needs should be a winning idea."
