Chipus concludes important milestone in the development of analog IP in SilTerra I18L technology

Chipus is announcing the tape out of its Ultra-Low-Power IoT Analog IPs, targeted for SilTerra’s IoT platform, as part of the strategic partnership to provide analog IP solutions for customers.


The tape out of a testchip with a set of analog IPs for SilTerra 0.18um I18L IoT Platform has been confirmed and sent out to prototyping. Chipus highlights the short development time, based on ULP expertise, focused on significantly reducing time-to-market. The development of these IPs was made public in a jointly announced press release dated March 7th as part of a partnership between SilTerra and Chipus for the development of analog IP solutions for the Internet-of-Things (IoT) market.


The development of these IPs is divided in two phases and this tape out is an important milestone in the first phase of the development.
In this testchip, the following circuits were prototyped:


“We are pleased to tape out these IPs. This should enforce the commitment that Chipus and SilTerra have with their customers and to the future of the cooperation” stated Murilo Pessatti, Chipus’ CEO.


The other IPs that were announced in March, and that are listed in the joint press release between the Malaysian-based wafer foundry and the Brazilian semiconductor and IC design services company, are part of the second phase of the development whose tape-out is scheduled for Q3/2018.


“This first set of analog IPs for SilTerra IoT platform are important building blocks required in several IoT end node applications. This tape-out is an important milestone but we are looking forward to the silicon results that we plan to publish in Q3/2018”, said Paulo A. Dal Fabbro, Chipus CTO.
