Analog Bits Inc. has launched the Analog Partner Program (APP) to enhance the semiconductor design ecosystem prioritizing first-time silicon success among its analog partners.

Companies collaborating through the APP initiative include design service company Accent, ASIC and derivative SOC developer Global Unichip Corp., ASIC and derivative SoC developer Open-Silicon, the Europe-based research organization IMEC, and Asia-based Alchip, Fujitsu Semiconductor Ltd, and SOCLE.

The said new initiative addresses many of the challenges in advanced technology designs at the 28nm node. The APP provides quality by collaborating on design integration and manufacturability. It also focuses on the need to integrate clocking and interface IP. It is said that the technology and business synergy developed among Analog Bits and its partners carries forward the time-to-market and time-to-volume advantages embodied by first-time silicon success.

"It is extremely important that the industry supply chain collaborate to help designers solve the increased complexity that face them at advanced technology nodes," said Mahesh Tirupattur, executive vice president of Analog Bits. "The move to 28nm is significant and extending the bond between our partners to meet the new first time silicon success challenges is an important step forward."
