Sofics' succesfully tape out a LIN PHY in TSMC 0.25um BCD. Evaluation is expected by the end of 2018.
The LIN PHY can be ported to any technology. Other automotive PHY's such as CAN-FD are also on the roadmap.
Sofics' announced the release of a new product, PhyStar, to complement the TakeCharge and PowerQubic IP portfolio's. With PhyStar, a higher level of
integration is reached. The first PHY to be qualified is LIN - for automotive applications. CAN-FD is also on the roadmap.
Aside from predesigned PHY's, PHY subcircuits are also offered, such as an antenna clipping circuit, commonly used in NFC applications. Of course, custom developed PHY's are also still offered.
