Anobit licenses Analog IP from Cosmic Circuits for designing memory controllers

Bangalore, INDIA based VLSI IP developer Cosmic Circuits has announced that Anobit, an Israel-based provider of NAND-based solutions, has licensed analog IP cores from Cosmic Circuits for several of its SoCs, some of which are currently in volume production.

The analog IPs which consisted of linear regulators, a power-on-reset and a silicon oscillator (with integrated clock multiplier) were implemented in 65nm CMOS process. These IPs were integrated into Anobit's flash memory controllers, used by world-leading flash manufacturers, consumer electronics vendors and storage system providers, to enhance the reliability and performance of flash-based products and systems ranging from Smartphones and Tablet computers to enterprise-grade Solid-State Drives (SSDs).

Commenting on this partnership, Kobi Blechman, VP R&D at Anobit said, "We had a need for a diverse set of IPs, and were looking for a supplier who had proven expertise in each of these areas. Cosmic fit the bill perfectly. With the strong support provided by their team, we were also able to quickly address any integration issues, making the process smooth and seamless."

The Director of IP of Cosmic Circuits Sundararajan Krishnan commented that, "We have an impressive portfolio of IPs in 65nm, and it is great that we could leverage this and enable Anobit to take their product to volume production in such a short span of time. This success and our continued partnership with the different product groups in Anobitis further testament to our growing stature as a world-class provider of Analog and Mixed-Signal IP."
