Design Services Partners
True Circuits recognized very early the growing importance of both highly differentiated third-party IP and quality ASIC design services to companies seeking higher levels of chip integration and faster time to market. In 2003, we created an IP partnership program that we extended to a select group of design services companies called the True Partner Program. We currently have about ten of the world's largest and most respected ASIC design services companies who are members of this program. The True Partner Program offers our partners discounts on the quality IP that they license from us in exchange for the expected volume and support leverage across their large customer bases. Over the years, many fabless chip companies and IDMs all over the world have had their chips designed, developed and delivered by ASIC houses with deep experience in specifying, integrating and testing a wide variety of True Circuits timing IP.

"The increasing demand for performance-intensive handheld devices and rising time-to-market pressures heightens the need for design turnkey providers to endow ASIC customers with more predictable and robust SoC solutions. With True Circuits' PLL and DLL at TSMC 55nm, we were able to achieve low jitter for DDR 800Mbps and enter into mass production with very stable yield.
