Los Altos, CA -- True Circuits, Inc. (TCI), a provider of analog and mixed-signal intellectual property (IP) for the semiconductor, systems and electronics industries, announced today that Ubicom, Inc. of Mountain View, California has successfully implemented multiple True Circuits PLL hard macros in Ubicom's IP3023 wireless network processor using TSMC's 130nm process technology.
The Ubicom processor's real-time architectural approach offers the highest quality streaming media and the fastest response times for voice and gaming applications. "We needed a flexible, high-performance and proven timing solution to meet the low latency requirements of our wireless network processor," said Darrell Burns, Vice President of Engineering at Ubicom. "True Circuits provided us with multi-phase clock generator PLLs that met all our performance requirements and are now enabling our customers to meet their own price and performance goals in the wireless infrastructure and peripheral equipment markets."
Ubicom's Wireless Network Processor
Now in volume production, the IP3023 has shown network address translation routing performance of over 50 Mbps on typical Internet packet mixes and uses a patent-pending architecture designed for real-time tasks and low latency. These performance levels enable routing at full wireless and very high speed digital subscriber line speeds, better firewall functions, and the addition of key features like print serving, voice, and virtual private network functions to low-cost routers.
True Circuits PLLs and DLLs
True Circuits offers a complete family of standardized clock generator, deskew, low-bandwidth and spread-spectrum PLLs and DDR DLLs that spans nearly all performance points and features typically requested by ASIC designers. These low-jitter, silicon-proven hard macros are available for immediate delivery in a range of frequencies, multiplication factors and functions in 0.25 to 0.09 micron CMOS processes from leading silicon fabrication vendors.
