Agile Analog has become a TSMC IP Alliance Program member, a key component of the TSMC OIP. The complete range of the company’s innovative analog IP is now obtainable by TSMC customers, covering data conversion, power management, security, IC monitoring, and always-on-domains.

The TSMC IP Alliance comprises major IP companies worldwide and supplies the semiconductor industry’s most comprehensive catalogue of silicon-verified and production-proven IP solutions for TSMC technologies. As the industry’s most comprehensive and vibrant design ecosystem, the TSMC OIP provides the optimal design experience, the most straightforward design reuse and the fastest integration to accelerate innovation in semiconductor design.

Chris Morrison, director of Product Marketing at Agile Analog, comments: “We are delighted to be joining such an elite group of global IP companies in the TSMC IP Alliance. In recent years, we have delivered IPs on a variety of TSMC processes for customers. As part of the OIP ecosystem, we can now access the PDKs and bring our entire analog IP portfolio to TSMC process technologies - from high-power BCD nodes to standard planar nodes and the latest advanced process technologies.”

Chris continues: “It’s exciting that our products are being used for novel applications across a wide range of sectors, including automotive, AI, High Performance Computing (HPC), and IoT. Demand for data conversion and power management solutions is extremely high at the moment, so we expect our ADC, DAC, and LDO products, in particular, will help to drive semiconductor innovation.”

Barry Paterson, CEO at Agile Analog, concludes: “We are delighted to be collaborating closely with TSMC. Our OIP membership enables us to better serve our growing array of global customers, especially those in the areas of AI and HPC working on the most advanced nodes.”

“TSMC values design ecosystem partners and continues working with them to enable next-generation designs with the full spectrum of best-in-class solutions benefiting from TSMC’s industry-leading technologies,” said Dan Kochpatcharin, head of the Design Infrastructure Management Division at TSMC. “Together with IP partners like Agile Analog, we’re able to help our mutual customers overcome design complexity and introduce new electronic innovations into the market more quickly.”
