ON Semiconductor has announced the availability of new qualified intellectual property (IP) on its proprietary ONC18 180 nanometer (nm) process technology. The newly qualified circuit blocks will help ON Semiconductor’s foundry (GDS2) interface customers minimize the risk of the need for silicon re-spins and therefore help reduce development costs and shorten time-to-market for new designs.
Through its Custom Foundry Business Unit, ON Semiconductor continues to offer new blocks of IP qualified in their proprietary processes developed by various external vendors including Micro Oscillator Inc., Senseeker Engineering Inc., and Silicon Storage Technology, Inc. The ten (10) new IP blocks that have most recently been qualified, provide functions that range from small-pitch column-parallel ADC and cryogenic-compatible LVDS drivers to ultra-low power oscillator and very-small footprint OTP memory. These IP blocks are applicable and beneficial to a wide range of customer end-markets including military/aerospace, medical, consumer, computing, communications, and automotive. In addition to supporting the work of ASIC designers in these sectors, the availability of qualified IP will also help design houses achieve reduced costs and enhanced schedule accuracy in quotations to end customers.
