TCI currently licenses its PLL and DLL hard macros directly to customers and
receives licensing fees for the design and integration services. Licensing
terms are very attractive and do not require royalty payments. In addition,
TCI has partnerships with other semiconductor companies that provide
indirect sales channels for its licensed products. All TCI products are
designed and packaged in a way that makes it possible for customers to
easily choose and integrate a design that meets their specific needs.
Customers who are interested in licensing TCI's PLL and DLL hard macros
should download TCI's standard Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), print
two copies, have both signed by a manager at the director level or above,
FAX one to (650) 949-3434, and mail both to:

order to obtain access to detailed TCI product specifications via the

completeness and the signer will be independently verified, usually on the
same day. If the NDA is complete, TCI will FAX back a counter-signed NDA and
