Fabless ASIC supplier Open-Silicon Inc. has joined Taiwan Semiconductor Mfg Co. Ltd (TSMC)'s design center alliance program.

More than 30 companies are members of TSMC's design center alliance program, which the company says offers customers service choices all the way from register-transfer level (RTL) through silicon, including full-chip placement and routing, RTL-to-GDS implementation and mixed-signal/analog/RF building blocks.

"We have worked closely with TSMC since Open-Silicon's inception," said Naveed Sherwani, president and CEO of Open-Silicon (Sunnyvale, California), in a statement. "This strong partnership has allowed us to provide customers with dramatically improved chances of right-first-time silicon."

Rick Cassidy, president of TSMC North America, noted that the fabless ASIC business is growing rapidly.

"By adding Open-Silicon to our design center alliance, we continue to reduce risk at each step of the ASIC implementation process and improve time-to-market," Cassidy said.
