Sunnyvale, Calif.--March 16, 1998--Artisan Components, Inc. announced an agreement to provide Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd. (TSMC) with Artisan Components' advanced 0.25-(m memory generators and standard cell libraries for incorporation into TSMC's semiconductor intellectual property library. TSMC will make these components available to its customers.
TSMC purchased Artisan Components' Process-Perfect HS300 (high-speed 300-MHz) single- and dual-port memory generators, and Process-Perfect Standard Cell Libraries. By using patented design techniques and by tuning the product to TSMC's 0.25-(m semiconductor process, Artisan Components' memory generators can create a wide variety of embedded memories that can operate at system speeds in excess of 300 MHz (worst case). The standard cell libraries provide ASIC vendors and IC designers process-optimized silicon components with leading-edge performance, power, area, and reliability characteristics.
