PHOENIX, AZ --- ON Semiconductor collaborates with Hexius Semiconductor to qualify several of their analog intellectual property (IP) blocks in its popular ONC18 0.18 µm CMOS process. This enables ON Semiconductor to better serve its customers with proven analog IP that can ultimately reduce design cycles and time-to-market. The eight initial designs resulting from this collaboration include a variety of analog-to-digital converters, digital-to-analog converters, voltage references and current references. There is provision, if needed, for the designs to be custom-tailored to match particular application demands. Further data converter and PLL designs are currently being developed for introduction later this year.
ON Semiconductor’s ONC18 process relies on a 0.18 micrometer (µm) CMOS architecture and due to its high voltage capabilities is extremely well suited to automotive, industrial, military and medical deployment. By having access to an expansive portfolio of qualified IP that supports this process, customers will be able to benefit from ASIC implementations that are highly optimized for their specific requirements, without needing to allocate too much of their own engineering resources to the task. As a result, much quicker design cycles, reduced risk of re-spins and lower associated costs can all be realized.
