INVECAS to Collaborate with GLOBALFOUNDRIES to Provide IP and End-to-End ASIC Design Services on 22FDX® and 12FDX™ Technologies
Santa Clara, CA, September 29, 2016-INVECAS Inc. and GF announced today that INVECAS will provide IP and end-to-end ASIC design services as a part of the foundry’s FDXcelerator™ Partner Program, an ecosystem designed to facilitate 22FDX SoC designs for tomorrow’s intelligent systems. The collaboration accelerates the adoption of FDX technology in applications spanning Internet-of-Things (IoT), mobile, RF connectivity, and networking markets.
INVECAS will work closely with GF's technology teams to develop and verify a range of intellectual property (IP) for the company’s 22FDX process. Moreover, INVECAS will offer comprehensive ASIC design services to help customers realize SoC designs with high confidence and low risk.
“Our objective is to provide silicon-proven IP solutions and system-level expertise to address the difficult issues of design complexity facing ASIC designers today,” said Dasaradha Gude, chairman and CEO, INVECAS. “We are glad to be an initial partner in GF's FDXcelerator Program, a ground-breaking initiative to enable a broad range of customers and accelerate time-to-volume for 22FDX.”
“We are pleased to expand our strategic relationship with INVECAS and welcome them as an initial member of the FDXcelerator Partner Program," said Alain Mutricy, senior vice president of product management at GF. "In addition to the comprehensive portfolio of FDX-optimized IP, our customers can now access INVECAS’ full suite of services to realize their SoC designs on time and with highest quality.”
With the recent announcement of the company’s next-generation 12FDX™ technology, the FDXcelerator Partner Program builds upon GF's industry-first FD-SOI roadmap, a lower-cost migration path for designers on advanced nodes. By participating in FDXcelerator and continuing to expand its IP offering to support a wider range of FDX customers, INVECAS is well positioned as a leader in the adoption and growth of the FDX platform. Moreover, the FDXcelerator Partner Program broadens the technology collaboration between the companies, including tighter interlock around quality, qualification and development methodology.
More information will be shared with the FDX design community in the months to come. Customers and partners interested in learning more about FDXcelerator can visit www.globalfoundries.com/FDXcelerator.
