Silicon-Proven Mixed Signal IP Products on 16nm FinFET

Analog Bits offers validated IP on TSMC's most advanced process

San Jose, CA, September 29, 2014 - Analog Bits (, the semiconductor industry's leading provider of mixed-signal IP (Intellectual Property) solutions, today disclosed working test-chips based upon their new Mixed Signal Design Kits on TSMC's latest 16nm FinFET process.

These Design Kits were created to de-risk and accelerate customers' use of mixed-signal technology, such as SERDES, PLLs and Sensors in advanced SOCs. Silicon validation through early tapeouts and rigorous testing, means customers can confidently design SOCs using Analog Bits' industry-leading, low power IP solutions.

"While 16nm FinFET is being prepared for volume production, we have worked closely with TSMC and our customers on early tapeouts and testing," commented Mahesh Tirupattur, Analog Bits' Executive Vice President. Our low-power IP is a significant differentiator for 16nm SoCs. We have a strong reputation for IP products that work the first time and also enable key differentiation including the earliest adoption by customers at new nodes. We now have IP tested on TSMC's newest 16nm FinFET process and have products ready for customer tape-outs."

Analog Bits' 16nm Mixed Signal Design Kits, as well as Design Kits for other processes, are ready now for customer delivery and use. Contact for detailed information and pricing.
