Reminder - True Circuits Attends Design Automation Conference; Features Complete Line of PLL and DLL Intellectual Property for ASIC, FPGA and SoC Designs

June 4-7, San Diego Convention Center, Booth 6864

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - June 4, 2007) -


Who

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

What

At the Design Automation Conference (DAC), True Circuits will feature its complete line of standardized clock generator, deskew, low bandwidth, high resolution and spread spectrum PLLs and DDR DLLs that spans nearly all performance points, features and foundry processes typically requested by ASIC, FPGA and SoC designers for core clocking, DDR, SerDes and video applications.

True Circuits will showcase a new line of PLL and DLL IP for TSMC's 55nm process and for the Common Platform's 65nm processes. True Circuits DLL IP will also be running on a demonstration board in the Denali booth as part of Denali's new high-speed Databahn™ DDR Memory PHYs. Stephen Maneatis, True Circuits' CEO, will also make a presentation in the Chip Estimate booth about True Circuits and its latest timing IP.

About True Circuits PLLs and DLLs

True Circuits offers a complete family of standardized and silicon-proven clock generator, deskew, low bandwidth, high resolution and spread spectrum PLLs and DDR DLLs that spans nearly all performance points and features 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 and reusable. They are also easy to integrate and are fully supported, so customers can reduce both design and silicon risks.

True Circuits PLLs are available in a range of frequencies, multiplication factors (1-4096), sizes and functions. Each features the company's LockNow!™ Technology to dramatically improve PLL lock times. This is a significant advantage for chips that need fast restarts from low-power modes.

True Circuits DLLs delay a set of signals by precise and adjustable fractions of a reference clock cycle independent of voltage and temperature. They are available in different sizes and form factors and are ideal for high-speed DDR interface applications.

True Circuits PLLs and DLLs are available for immediate customer delivery in TSMC, UMC, CHRT and Common Platform processes from 180nm to 55nm. The hard macros are available for a per use license fee with reuse options and no royalty fees. The license fee includes integration support from TCI to ensure a successful customer tape out. The deliverables include GDSII and LVS Spice netlists, behavioral and synthesis models, Library Exchange Format (LEF) files and extensive user documentation.
