S3 Group launches 10 new silicon proven IP cores

IRELAND: S3 Group, a global independent Mixed-Signal IP supplier and provider of Analog, Mixed-Signal, RF, Power Management and professional System-on-Chip (SoC) services to OEMs, system vendors and semiconductor companies, announced the immediate availability of a number of new Mixed-Signal IP cores which have been developed and silicon proven during 2012.

Each of these new cores is now in volume production with customers worldwide and includes the following blocks:

S3ADIQ125M10BSM65LPA  10-bit 125 Msps Pipeline ADC SMIC 65nm LL    
S3AD54M12BT40G          12-bit 54 Msps Pipeline ADC TSMC 40nm G
S3DCC51XGF18          DC/DC Converter         GF 180nm
S3AD71M10BT55G          10-bit 71Msps ADC         TSMC 55nm G
S3AD54MD12BT65D          12-bit 54Msps ADC         TSMC 65nm LP
S3DA300M12BCH65LPEA 12-bit 300Msps DAC         GF 65nm LPe
S3REG25016T65L         250mA Voltage Regulator LDO       TSMC 65nm LP
S3PLLFRACT65         Fractional PLL                 TSMC 65nm LP
S3ADIQ19M14BC18         14-bit 19Msps Pipeline ADC TSMC 180nm
S3RFMXWT18         RF Mixer                 TSMC 180nm

The cores are being used in applications such as DVB-C2/S2 Demodulators, System Power Management Unit ICs, wireless and wireline communications, LTE and Satellite Transceivers. The majority of the IP blocks delivered by S3 Group typically leverage its existing extensive IP portfolio and customize these for specific customer requirements.

S3 Group’s customization capability is based on proven design methodologies, strong adherence to design process and highly professional project management. These capabilities enable the company to efficiently and repeatedly deliver right-first-time analog, RF and Mixed-Signal components in silicon.

“We have a healthy obsession with delivering value and quality to our customers and gaining and maintaining their trust is of paramount importance to us. While 2012 was another excellent year for S3 Group, our world-class engineering team is committed to continuing the expansion of a high quality IP portfolio which can be easily integrated into SoCs and is ready for production,” commented Dermot Barry, VP Silicon BU, S3 Group.

“Some of the world’s largest fabless semiconductor companies, as well as many ambitious start-ups trust S3 Group with the delivery of key Mixed-Signal IP cores and our ambition is to maintain our position as a leading independent supplier, while others exit the market. We look forward to announcing further innovations and successes over the coming quarters.”
