Dongbu Electronics announced the expansion of its analog intellectual property (IP) portfolio for 130nm node through a strategic partnership with Chipidea.

Intended to support Dongbu customers developing chips for mobile applications, the new analog IP from Chipidea promises higher performance and lower power operation as well as up to 10 percent reduction of CMOS silicon area required to process chips at the 130nm node, the company said. The new IP enhances the company's analog IP portfolio in three key areasanalog-to-digital conversion, USB communications and audio codec functionality.

"Our new analog IP enables faster signal processing and lower power consumption for mobile phones when compared to similar IP currently being used," said Dr. Jae Song, Dongbu's EVP of strategic business development. "Moreover, our new IP offers the opportunity to reduce chip development expense thanks to low porting costs combined with reducing the chip's footprint to process more chips per wafer."

According to Song, the newly added IP will be made available to Dongbu customers in Q4 of this year following its complete validation through porting procedures and actual implementation in silicon. He also confirmed that the company's steadily expanding IP portfolio will continue to focus on enhancing design support for advanced chips targeting both mobile and display applications with particular emphasis on power management.
