LAWRENCEVILLE, GA – October 16, 2023 -- Silicon Creations, a leading supplier of high-performance analog and mixed-signal intellectual property (IP), has been recognized by TSMC as the recipient of the 2023 OIP Partner of the Year Award for Analog/Mixed Signal IP. The OIP Partner of the Year award honors TSMC Open Innovation Platform® (OIP) ecosystem partners’ pursuit of excellence in next-generation design enablement over the past year.
Silicon Creations and other OIP ecosystem partners’ collaborative efforts promote innovation in the semiconductor industry. TSMC announced award winners at its 2023 North American OIP Ecosystem Forum, a first-of-its-kind event that brings together the semiconductor design partners and TSMC customers, providing an ideal platform to discuss the latest technologies and design solutions for HPC, AI, mobile, consumer, automotive, and IoT applications.
This award was given to Silicon Creations based on the company’s extensive portfolio of PLL and SerDes IPs which has been assessed through the TSMC 9000 IP quality management program for multiple processes ranging from 180nm to 3nm. Along with Silicon Creations’ PLL being in production on TSMC’s 3nm technology, Silicon Creations continues to design and expand its offering of multi-protocol and low-latency SerDes PMAs, supporting up to 32Gbps in TSMC process nodes from 40nm to 4nm.
Silicon Creations and TSMC have developed their partnership for over two decades, with their collaboration intensifying significantly since the introduction of TSMC’s FinFET process nodes. This deepening cooperation is exemplified by the substantial volume of TSMC FinFET wafer shipments featuring Silicon Creations' intellectual property.
Randy Caplan, Co-Founder of Silicon Creations, expressed the company’s gratitude for being honored with the 2023 Analog Mixed Signal IP Partner of the Year award for the seventh consecutive year. He noted the remarkable achievement and highlighted the past year's continued growth, particularly in the production of (FinFET) chips manufactured by TSMC. This success serves as concrete evidence that their partnership with TSMC delivers valuable benefits to customers, such as reduced risk, high yield, and shorter time-to-market—standards that underpin their commitment as semiconductor IP providers.
“Congratulations to Silicon Creations, as the winner of the 2023 TSMC OIP Partner of the Year award,” said Dan Kochpatcharin, head of the Design Infrastructure Management Division at TSMC. “Your continuous collaboration and efforts enable our customers to take full advantage of the significant performance and power efficiency boost of TSMC’s advanced technologies in the pursuit of accelerating innovation into their differentiated products.”
