EnSilica tapes out IoT reference platform on TSMC’s 40ULP
An ultra-low power IoT reference platform developed by sureCore and targeted at next generation wearable consumer and medical applications, has been taken to tape out by semiconductor IP developer EnSilica.
The IoT reference platform, which incorporates derivations of sureCore’s EverOn and PowerMiser SRAM IP product lines, has been targeted at TSMC’s 40nm Ultra Low Power process technology.
“EnSilica was a natural choice for the implementation of our IoT reference platform,” said Eric Gunn, COO of sureCore. “With a demonstrable understanding of how near threshold design can meet customer expectations for battery powered applications, EnSilica’s technical appreciation of our technology, as well as a deep understanding of TSMC’s processes, has ensured a painless route to tape-out.”
“We are pleased to extend our relationship with sureCore on the implementation of its IoT reference platform,” said Ian Lankshear, EnSilica’s CEO. “Its EverOn and PowerMiser SRAM IPs are proving a game-changer when it comes to providing SoC developers with ultra-low power, area-efficient memories and its IoT reference platform looks set to make the same impact on the next generation of wearable consumer and medical applications.”
PowerMiser is single port synchronous low power SRAM IP said to consume less than 50% of the dynamic power of industry standard SRAMS, well as a 20% static power reduction. EverOn is single port synchronous ultra low voltage SRAM IP that operates at voltages as low as 0.6V.
