True Circuits has established close working relationships with many of the world's leading foundries and IDMs over the years. As the world-wide leader in timing circuit development and licensing, these silicon companies eagerly engage with True Circuits to ensure that our families of high-performance PLL and DLL IP are ported, silicon tested and readily available very early in the life of an advanced process technology to accelerate advanced chip development. The close technical relationships have allowed us to work collaboratively to ensure our circuits are optimally designed, characterized and correlated with foundry silicon. The close business relationships mean that our common customers can get early and easy access to both business and technical information about our timing technologies.
TSMC is the world's largest dedicated semiconductor foundry, providing the industry's leading process technology and the foundry segment's largest portfolio of process-proven libraries, IPs, design tools and reference flows. The Company's owned capacity in 2015 reached above 9 million (12-inch equivalent) wafers, including capacity from three advanced 12-inch GIGAFABTM facilities, four eight-inch fabs, one six-inch fab, as well as TSMC's wholly owned subsidiaries, WaferTech and TSMC China. TSMC is the first foundry to provide 20nm and 16nm production capabilities. TSMC's corporate headquarters are in Hsinchu, Taiwan. For more information, visit www.tsmc.com.

"We selected True Circuits' clock generator PLL for our high-speed communications application because of its small size, wide frequency range and superior low-jitter performance. The performance of the TCI PLL will enable our ASIC customers to successfully implement multiple SPI-4.2 macros in their high-end telecommunication ASICs and help meet the tight jitter and power budgets required for 10 Gbps SONET/SDH systems."
