- First time right
- No re-spins
- Reduced exposure to liabilities such as field failures and patent disputes
- Silicon and product proven cells
Improve IC performanceStandard ESD solutions can actually hamper the performance of your IC designs. Sofics ESD technology, however, will let your IC deliver high speed, unimpaired analog performance, robust high-voltage interfaces on nano-CMOS SOCs, and other features you need to create a winning product.
High speed RF capability
- Enable use of sensitive core transistors for more speed
- Reduce S11
- Improve Q-factor
- Reduce noise
- Enable 28 Gbps I/Os in 28nm
Over voltage designs
- Hot swap
- Open drain
- Over voltage tolerant
- 13V protection in 28nm
- Common Mode Rejection Ratio (CMRR)
- IO impedance
- noise sensitivity leakage…
