September 15, 2008 -- ChipX Corp. has added more than 60 industrial-grade analog building blocks to its line-up of analog and mixed-signal IP. Following the company's digital to analog converter family announcement in June 2008, ChipX is continuing to increase its analog and mixed-signal ASIC capabilities with a focus on medical, industrial, military and aerospace applications
Designed for signal conditioning, on-chip references, clocking, controlled reset, I/O and a variety of other analog functions, the analog building blocks are ideal for system-chip designs used in medical devices, industrial products, military and aerospace applications. Fully-characterized for industrial temperature in high-volume CMOS process geometries of ChipX foundry partners, the analog building blocks can be combined with other proven ChipX IP or trusted 3rd party IP for system-on-chip (SOC) designs.
The ChipX analog building block catalog consists of many general purpose functions, available in 250-nm, 180-nm and 130-nm processes. Building blocks include analog switches and multiplexers, charge pumps, comparators, self-calibrated termination, reference resistors, reference voltage and reference current generators, oscillator circuits, power-on-reset generators, operational amplifiers and various I/Os including HSTL, SSTL 1.5/ 1.8/ 2.5/ 3.3, LVPECL and LVDS.
Each of the analog building block family members includes simulation models, extensive data sheets, and full design information. They can be integrated with the full range of ChipX building blocks, including 10-bit, 210-Msps DAC, USB 2.0, PCI Express, DDR/-DDR2, ARM(926) or BA12/-22 processors to create a system-on-chip in mixed-signal Hybrid ASIC, Embedded Array or Standard Cell products today.
