GUC' 16nm LiDAR SoC incorporates Omni Design’s multi-Giga sample ADC and other signal chain IP cores.

Global Unichip Corp. (GUC) and Omni Design Technologies have successfully taped out a 16nm LiDAR SoC by GUC incorporating Omni Design’s multi-Giga sample Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADC) and other signal chain IP cores.

Integrating high performance analog IP cores into increasingly complex SoCs is essential for applications such as LiDAR, radar, networking and 5G especially in advanced process nodes. It requires seamless collaboration between the ASIC team and the IP provider to deliver the functionality and cutting-edge performance required in the SoC. Engineers from Omni Design and GUC worked in close collaboration to achieve this tape out.

“Omni Design is delivering high-performance data converters in advanced process nodes to enable the next generation of products in automotive, 5G, networking and AI markets,” said Dr. Kush Gulati, president and CEO of Omni Design Technologies. “We are impressed with the GUC team and their ability to integrate mixed-signal IP into a complex SoC and look forward to working with them on other projects in support of our customers.”

“GUC focuses on the design of highly complex SoCs and managing their production for customers developing products in advanced process nodes,” said Chiang Fu, senior vice president at GUC. “The data converter IP from Omni Design was key to this SoC and they delivered it with quality to enable us to tape out the SoC precisely on schedule.”
