Faraday Selects Silicon Creations PLL Silicon IP for SoC Design

Production-Proven IP Best Solution Implemented in 55nm Process Node

SUWANEE, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- Silicon Creations, a leading supplier of high-performance semi-custom analog and mixed-signal Intellectual Property (IP) provider, today announced that Faraday Technology Corp., a fabless ASIC and Silicon IP provider based in Hsinchu, Taiwan, has selected the UMC 55nm SP Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) IP from Silicon Creations for its challenging SoC design in multimedia and consumer related applications.

The Silicon Creations fractional-N PLL is production-proven IP implemented in many different processes. The PLL has ultra-wide ranges of 1-megahertz (MHz) to 1.2-gigahertz (GHz) input and from 1.5MHz to 2.4GHz output as well as a 24-bit fractional modulator allowing output frequency steps below 0.01ppm. An integrated jitter compensation Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) means the output long-term jitter in fractional mode is better than most integer PLLs. It has the capability to generate digitally exact spread spectrum modulation to ensure the satisfying result in specific SoC clocking applications.

"In the consumer and multimedia market, Faraday has accumulated the solid domain know-how and service experience. Besides our self-developed IPs, Faraday further extend the partnership to some professional IP vendors for an even more comprehensive offering," says Jensen Yen, Associate Vice President of Marketing and Spokesperson at Faraday. "By leveraging Silicon Creations' expertise and its technical support, Faraday can assist customers to launch their solutions, with less design and integration effort, and in most aggressive schedule," he added.

"We are glad that Silicon Creations' PLL has been selected for Faraday's exacting requirements and commitment to providing the most sophisticated design service and technologies," says Andrew Cole, Vice President of Business Development at Silicon Creations. "We believe that our PLL will help Faraday to provide its high-performance SoCs within a short schedule."

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.
