March 13, 2012 -- Global Unichip Corp. (GUC) and Synopsys, Inc. today announced the tape out of 30 customer devices during the past four years using a combination of Synopsys' DesignWare IP and GUC's ASIC design services.
Under its Flexible ASIC business model, GUC brings custom ASIC products to market from nearly any point in the design chain. As a dedicated ASIC company without its own products or the burden of owning hard assets, such as foundries or tooling, GUC minimizes design barriers and speeds time-to-volume.
GUC and Synopsys have enabled the successful tape-out of 30 customer devices covering networking, wireless communication, consumer and computer markets based on 130-, 90-, 65- and 40-nm manufacturing-process nodes. The resulting designs have been implemented into a variety of products including digital cameras, PDAs, surveillance equipment, digital TVs and hard disk drives.
As a member of Synopsys' IP OEM Partner Program, GUC has access to Synopsys' extensive portfolio of proven DesignWare IP and technical support. The DesignWare IP portfolio consists of complete, silicon-proven IP for widely used interfaces such as PCI Express, USB, DDR, SATA, HDMI, MIPI, and Ethernet, as well as a broad range of analog IP, embedded memories and standard cell libraries.
