Sandbridge Technologies Inc., developer of fully programmable software-defined-radio (SDR) chipsets, has licensed Barcelona Design Inc.'s analog synthesis solution for the creation of PLL circuits.

The PLLs will be generated using Barcelona's PLL synthesizer for the TSMC 0.13?m "G" process, which can generate clocking circuits up to 2GHz, from user-specification to GDSII layout, within a day. Sandbridge will use the circuits in its new SandBlaster DSP products for the wireless terminal market.

"Because we serve the wireless handset market, power is of ultimate concern. Barcelona Design9s synthesis solutions can generate full-custom PLLs, which satisfy our tight power budget while still meeting required high-performance specifications," said Gary Nacer, Director of Engineering at Sandbridge.
