SoC design services target Taiwan
A new agreement with Taiwanese SoC design services company Socle Technology will facilitate the design of MIPS-based SoCs by fabless and system companies in the region
MIPS Technologies and Taiwanese SoC design services company Socle Technology have entered into an agreement that will facilitate the design of MIPS-based SoCs by fabless and system companies though a broad range of design services offered by Socle. Under the terms of the agreement, Socle has taken a license for the MIPS32 4KE and 4K family of cores.
Socle already has completed a tapeout for a MIPS Technologies licensee using Socle's optimised deep submicron "SoC-ImP" design flow.
Socle's capabilities enable MIPS licensees in Taiwan to leverage Socle's expertise in developing finished GDSII and delivering chips with maximum performance and minimum die size, offering a range of services such as core hardening and merging, and platform-based design.
"Design engineers developing SoC's for next-generation products increasingly rely upon industry-standard microprocessor technology to ease their design challenges", said David Lyou, President of Socle Technology.
"Our customers will greatly benefit from MIPS Technologies' advanced embedded core architecture that features synthesisable, high performance, configurable options, small die sizes and low power consumption.
Together, we offer unique, turnkey SoC solutions that will simplify customers' design challenges and get them to market faster".
"Socle's expertise in SoC design combined with widely recognised EDA engineering capabilities ensure our customers can realise the full advantages of MIPS Technologies flexible, synthesisable microprocessor architecture", commented Jack Browne, Vice President of Worldwide Sales at MIPS Technologies.
"Our agreement with Socle underscores our commitment to the Taiwanese fabless industry that is looking to compete in the global semiconductor market with leading-edge solutions.
By basing their future designs upon an industry-standard hardware platform, these companies will ensure their investments are secure for years to come, while enjoying the benefits of optimised software tools and peripheral IP that are available to MIPS licensees".
