Silicon Creations Named 2022 TSMC OIP Partner of the Year for Analog and Mixed-Signal IP

LAWRENCEVILLE, Georgia, November 02, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Silicon Creations, a leading provider of high-performance analog and mixed-signal intellectual property (IP), has been recognized by TSMC as the 2022 Open Innovation Platform Recipient® (OIP) Partner of the Year Award for Analog and Mixed Signal IP. The OIP Partner of the Year award recognizes TSMC OIP ecosystem partners’ continued excellence in enabling next-generation design over the past year.

Silicon Creations and the collaborative efforts of other OIP ecosystem partners effectively promote innovation in the semiconductor industry. TSMC announced the winners at its 2022 OIP Ecosystem Forum, a one-of-a-kind event that brings together TSMC’s semiconductor design partners and customers, providing an ideal platform to discuss the latest technologies and design solutions for HPC, mobile, automotive, and IoT applications.

This award was given to Silicon Creations based on the company’s extensive IP PLL and SerDes portfolio, which was evaluated under the TSMC 9000 IP Quality Assessment Program for multiple processes ranging from 180nm to 3nm. Along with the success of the PLL at TSMC, Silicon Creations continues to design and expand its offering of multi-protocol, low-latency PMA SerDes supporting up to 26 Gbps in TSMC’s 40 nm Low Power (LP) process nodes. ), 40 nm General Purpose (GP), 16/12 nm FinFET compact technology (FFC), N7 and N6.

The relationship between Silicon Creations and TSMC is now in its second decade. The collaboration has intensified during this time, especially since the introduction of FinFET process nodes by TSMC. This is evidenced by the considerable number of TSMC FinFET wafer shipments that include Silicon Creations IP.

“Silicon Creations is honored to accept the 2022 Analog Mixed Signal IP Partner of the Year award for the sixth consecutive year. This is a remarkable achievement by everyone on our team,” said Randy Caplan, co-founder of Silicon Creations. “The past year has been another year of explosive growth for our business, especially in production (FinFET) chips manufactured by TSMC for our customers. Real proof that our collaboration with TSMC provides customers with benefits, including a low risk, good return and short time to market, the very standards that drive our business as semiconductor IP vendors.”

“TSMC has awarded Silicon Creations the 2022 TSMC OIP Partner of the Year Award for its contribution to the OIP design ecosystem,” said Dan Kochpatcharin, Head of Design Infrastructure Management Division, TSMC. “Silicon Creations’ continued collaboration with TSMC and efforts enable our mutual customers to fully leverage the power, performance, and significant surface enhancements of TSMC’s cutting-edge technologies to accelerate their differentiated product innovation. “

OIP Partner of the Year is awarded to partner companies that work tirelessly to achieve the highest standards in technology design, development and implementation. Silicon Creations will continue to work with TSMC to enable next-generation designs with certified solutions and services using TSMC’s latest technologies.
