GigOptix ASIC expansion addresses designs in lower nodes
GigOptix, Inc. has released an addition to its ASIC Product Line, which addresses high-performance designs in advanced low-geometry CMOS process nodes—40nm, 28nm, and 14nm—and provides customised ASIC designs at geometries ranging from 65nm to 600nm.
The ASIC Sunrise series targets the emerging and fast-growing markets of industrial intense computation, which are the growth engines for many rapidly developing areas such as high-performance computers, super-computers, mega-datacentres, and algorithm-intensive cryptographic devices such as those utilised in data encryption.
Sunrise is designed for compatibility with the Sunset-Rescue program, alleviating the challenge posed by component obsolescence, especially in mission-critical applications. This includes direct pin for pin compatible replacement strategy for FPGA and ASIC device designs at 65nm and larger transistor sizes such as 0.13um, 0.18um, 0.25um, 0.35um, and 0.6um.
The series is available immediately for design launch at 40nm and 28nm, with initial products expected to be market ready in the 3rd quarter of 2014.
"We are very excited to introduce our new ASIC Sunrise family of products, which complete our popular line of customised ASIC devices. In doing so, we are enabling a new generation of ASICs to address many new computationally intensive applications. We are also pleased to continuously win the trust of partners such as SiliconArt in the development of their emerging line of innovative products, supporting the advanced ASIC Sunrise roadmap," said Anil Chaudhry, Vice President and General Manager of the Industrial ASIC Product Line at GigOptix.
