True Circuits Showcases State-of-the-art Ultra PLL, Low Power IoT PLL and 16nm IP Portfolio at TSMC NA Technology Symposiums

March 15, 2017 - 

Who

True Circuits, Inc. (TCI), a leading provider of analog and mixed-signal intellectual property (IP) for the semiconductor, systems and electronics industries and member of the TSMC IP Alliance since 2004.

What

True Circuits will showcase its IoT PLLs that are specifically tailored to the stringent power requirements and wide frequency operation range of the rapidly-growing IoT market.  Sipping only 45uW at 30MHz and running from core power, the IoT PLL is designed for very low power.  With multiplication factors up to 8192, the PLL is able to run off of a small and inexpensive 32KHz crystal and still clock a 32-bit CPU at up to 250MHz.  The IoT PLL is ideal for applications like wearables and senor devices, where the power-performance profile must be managed tightly, and possibly over a very wide frequency range.

True Circuits will also showcase its high-performance Ultra PLLs that are well suited for the most demanding chip applications, including high-speed SerDes and ADC input clocks.  The Ultra PLL employs a state-of-the-art architecture and uses high-speed digital and analog circuits to achieve exceptional performance, with many useful features.  It has ultra- low jitter (<500fs) for the most demanding SerDes and ADC input clocks.  It has ultra-wide frequency range with multiplication factors from 3 to over 250,000, supporting reference clocks as low as 32KHz.  It also has precise frequency control with a least 26 fractional bits (at least 10 precise) for extremely high fractional-N resolution.  It can even generate precise and adjustable frequency spreading with programmable rate and depth to meet tight FCC requirements.  The Ultra PLL packs all these features into a compact size that draws low power and, with full pin programmability, one PLL can be used for all applications on a SoC.

True Circuits will also feature its complete line of standardized and silicon-proven general purpose, clock generator, deskew, and spread spectrum PLLs, and multi-slave and multi-phase DLLs that spans nearly all performance points, features and foundry processes typically requested by ASIC, FPGA and SoC designers.  These high quality, low-jitter PLL and DLL hard macros are suited to a wide variety of interface standards and chip applications.  They are pin-programmable, highly process tolerant, reusable and available for delivery in TSMC processes from 180nm to 16nm, including most half nodes.

With many 16nm FFP and FFC PLLs and DLLs now under license with customers world-wide, volume production is expected to continue to build in 2017.  Don’t miss your chance to learn more about our industry leading IP products from the timing experts at the TSMC NA Technology Symposiums.
