Triad Semiconductor to Exhibit at DesignCon 2010 and Present on a New Alternative to Full-custom Analog/Mixed-signal ASICs

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 1, 2010 — Triad Semiconductor Inc., the industry’s leading supplier of via-configurable mixed-signal ASICs, will demonstrate the company’s newly-introduced Mocha-1™ platform at DesignCon 2010 on February 2nd to 3rd in the Santa Clara Convention Center. The company’s CTO, Jim Kemerling, also will present on “Via-configurable Analog ASIC: Technology and Applications.”


Exhibiting: The Mocha-1 array, which integrates an ARM® Cortex™-M0 ultra low power 32-bit processor running at 25MHz with 32Kbytes of EEPROM memory, 24Kbytes of SRAM, 75,000 gates of user configurable logic, and a wide selection of analog resources including op-amps, DACs, ADCs, resistors, capacitors, transistors and switches. Combining the Cortex-M0 with these configurable analog and digital resources allows Mocha-1 to realize a wide range of single-chip, mixed-signal SoC solutions for industrial, medical, sensor, Bluetooth low energy, and military/ aerospace applications. In Booth 827, Triad will be demonstrating a Bluetooth 4.0 (Bluetooth low energy) solution running on Triad’s Mocha FPGA emulation system allowing for rapid prototyping and development of complete Cortex-M0 solutions.

Presenting: “Via-configurable Analog ASIC: Technology and Applications,” a new alternative to full-custom analog/mixed signal ASICs that applies many of the concepts of deep-submicron digital structured arrays to larger geometry analog processes. Consequently a place-and-route tool (normally only for the digital domain) can be used to configure an analog ASIC while maintaining performance comparable to classical full-custom analog design. Specifically, this concept uses a single via layer to configure an entire device. These new devices are called via-configurable arrays (VCAs.) For additional information, please see


Presenter: Jim Kemerling, Chief Technology Officer, Triad Semiconductor


The presentation will take place on Tuesday, February 2, 2010 from 8:30am to 9:10am.

Exhibition hours are February 2nd and 3rd, 2010, from 12:30 to 6:30.


Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA.
