Analog Bits announces 28nm IP availability

MOUNTAIN VIEW, USA: Analog Bits, the Integrated Clocking and Interface IP leader, announced availability of its major product lines on 28nm process technologies.

The company revealed for the first time that it has long had working silicon at the 32nm process nodes, and has delivered numerous 28nm IP based on a high performance (HP) and low power (LP) processes. It is now actively porting production-proven IP to multiple 28nm nodes, including the new 28nm HPM process.

The Analog Bits 28nm product lines include PLL, DLL, SERDES, DDR3 I/Os, TCAM high performance memories, and on-die thermometer IP. Design Kits are available immediately for inclusion in leading edge designs.

"Hitting the precise power, performance and area sweet spot is going to challenge designers at the 28nm node. Analog Bits is working hard to get in front of the many IP technical issues at 28-nanometers and is bringing key clocking and interface IP to meet the needs of early adopters," explains Mahesh Tirupattur, executive VP, Analog Bits.

Analog Bits' 28nm standard PLLs cover a range of frequency requirements up to 5GHz. They feature an exceedingly small footprint thanks to the pioneering "zero core area" technique, and like other Analog Bits PLLs, feature class-leading low jitter and low power with less than 1mA/GHz power consumption. Ultra Low Jitter (<100fs RMS) and Very High Speed (up to 20GHz) PLLs are also available.

The 28nm SERDES line supports the industry's lowest power consumption at 4.3mw/Gbps, and the industry's lowest latency. It has multi-rate and multi-protocol capabilities and adaptive equalization to support PCI Express Gen 3 and backplane KR applications, as well as supporting over 70 standard protocols. This is ideal for high SERDES count chips due to its low area and power and excels as a chip-to-chip interconnect solution.

The new 28nm DDR3/LPDDR2 I/Os support designs with speeds up to 2.133 Gbps and is programmable to support DDR3/3L/3U standards. The LPDDR2 products are targeted for hand held and consumer devices where lower power memory interfaces are essential. The high performance TCAM memories feature capabilities beyond the 1 GHz range. The 28nm temperature sensor is a highly integrated, low power, small form factor macro for monitoring temperature variation on-chip, allowing very high precision even in untrimmed usage.
