Cosmic Circuits has said that Silicon Harmony, a supplier of ASIC solutions and services for the South Korean market, has licensed a clocking solution from Cosmic Circuits in 65-nm technology.
Cosmic offers a matrix of clocking solutions which include system PLLs, specialty PLLs, crystal oscillators and silicon oscillators and has already taped-out designs in 28nm. As part of its specialty PLL offering, Cosmic provides low-jitter and Sigma Delta Fractional-N PLLs. Cosmic has PLL Solutions in most of the technology nodes starting from 0.18um to 28-nm.
“We are one of the few IP companies that have made significant investments in a silicon characterization lab and provide our customers with detailed test-chip characterization reports of PLL thereby increasing their confidence to adopt our solutions.”Sundararajan Krishnan, Director of IP at Cosmic Circuits.
“We were looking for a silicon-proven PLL and found the right partner with Cosmic Circuits and were also happy to see their roadmap extending to 28-nm. We plan to engage with Cosmic for our future needs,” said J.D. Kim, CEO, Silicon Harmony.
