Analogue and mixed-signal IP core provider Cosmic Circuits has said that its M-PHY DigRF v4 solution has been licensed by customers in Asia. The company offers differentiated analogue IP cores in nanometre technology nodes covering data converters, analogue-front-end platforms for wireless and audio, power-management, clocking and MIPI Interfaces.

Cosmic Circuits' DigRF v4 solution integrates an M-PHY that supports the 1.5Gbps HS-G1 and 3Gbps HS-G2 modes and a controller. The solution includes the master controller for integration in the base band modem SoC and the slave controller for integration in the RFIC.

The company has licensed both the master and the slave controller to its customers. Given its anticipated wide-spread usage and the need for multiple configurations, the implementation has been kept modular, said Cosmic. The transmitter (TX) and receiver (RX) blocks are modularized while the bandgap, PLL and regulators are integrated into a common block. This modular approach allows rapid customisation for any configuration.

"We are pleased to see the continued success of MIPI's M-PHY and DigRF specifications," said Joel Huloux, chairman, MIPI Alliance. "Asia is a key growth market for wireless devices and MIPI specifications, and we wish Cosmic Circuits continued success."

Sundararajan Krishnan, director, IP, Cosmic Circuits, commented that "We are very happy that our MIPI DPHY and MPHY solutions are getting integrated into the SoCs of leading fabless companies around the world. With the controllers now included as part of our offering, we provide our customers with a complete solution. We have an exhaustive portfolio across applications and process technologies, and are starting to see significant increase in the adoption of our solutions. Application boards with the Cosmic Circuits MPHY test-chip and the controller on FPGA are available upon request to select customers."
