LOS ALTOS, California-True Circuits, Inc. (TCI),
a developer and marketer of innovative high-speed analog and digital
integrated circuit intellectual property (IP), announced today the
immediate availability of a new family of standardized Phase-Locked
Loop (PLL) designs. These designs span nearly all performance points
and features typically requested by ASIC designers. They are
available in a range of frequencies, multiplication factors and other
options in 0.25um CMOS through the leading-edge processes of TI, TSMC
and UMC. Licensing terms are very attractive and do not require
years we have been providing fully customized PLLs to the world's
most demanding customers. Recognizing that many of our customers do
not require this custom design service, we decided to find a way to
bring the same high-quality, leading-edge designs to customers with
less specialized needs at reduced costs", said John Maneatis,
President of True Circuits. "By carefully analyzing our mainstream
customers' needs for PLLs, we were able to meet these needs by
developing a standardized set of designs that cover such important
requirements as low-jitter, versatility and high process-tolerance at
substantially reduced cost and faster turnaround times."
"We have altered our entire business model and product line to
accommodate the design and business interests of our valued
customers", said Stephen Maneatis, Chief Executive Officer of True
Circuits. "We believe we have in place a product line and licensing
arrangement that will enable our customers to obtain premium quality
PLL designs quickly, easily and at reasonable cost with the highest
confidence that their chip designs will work on the first silicon."
