To include NEXSYS 28HP semiconductor process node for NetLogic’s knowledge-based and multi-core processors
NetLogic Microsystems, a provider of semiconductor offerings for internet networks, and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), have extended their collaboration to include TSMC NEXSYS 28HP (28nm high performance) semiconductor process node for NetLogic Microsystems NxG knowledge-based processors, multi-core processors and 10/40/100Gigabit PHY.
NetLogic has launched advanced product development for multiple industry-leading product lines on the TSMC 28nm node. The 28HP process offers speed and power efficiency advantages over previous process nodes.
In addition, NetLogic Microsystems is developing a suite of custom high-performance circuits optimised around TSMC’s 28nm node, including high-speed serial interface technology, analog and clocking circuitry, core processing elements and other standard cells, as well as refining the design and tape-out flow for the advanced node, the company said.
Ron Jankov, president and CEO of NetLogic, said: “We are proud to have been one of the early partners for TSMC in 80nm, 55nm, 40nm and now 28nm for our best-in-class knowledge-based processors, multi-core processors and 10/40/100 Gigabit PHY product families.
“By combining the superior design and architecture of our products with TSMC’s proven leadership and track record in advanced manufacturing technologies, we are able to deliver highly innovative products with unprecedented performance, scalability and energy efficiency to our customers.”
