November 5, 2007 -- Aragio Solutions announced today the immediate availability of silicon-proven I/O libraries for the 65-nm Common Platform technology process available from Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing, Ltd.. This latest development extends the relationship between Aragio and Chartered, which has spanned numerous process technology nodes. The breadth of programmable GPIO I/O, complex I/O and analog and mixed-signal intellectual property (IP) spans CMOS processes from 350nm to 65nm.
The 65-nm programmable GPIO I/O library offering, augmented by a suite of specialty and system interface circuit I/O library pad sets, has been utilized by customers worldwide. Aragio developed its unique ESD protection and high latch-up immunity approach to be compatible with a full I/O library solution and provides IC designers with a selection of I/O library options available to design their entire ASIC/ SoC I/O pad frame design. Aragio's ESD protection and integrated circuit technology allows for silicon-efficient I/O libraries now being designed into many ASIC/ SOC products.
Aragio released a comprehensive set of 65-nm programmable GPIO I/O libraries for both 2.5-V and 3.3-V operation. Each of these I/O libraries operates over a wide voltage range from 1.5V to 2.5V for the 2.5-V I/O libraries and 1.8V to 3.3V for the 3.3-V I/O libraries. The libraries include an extensive set of programmable and selectable features that include drive strength control, slew rate control and selectable input capability.
The I/O libraries are offered in staggered and a very silicon-efficient inline pad configuration. Furthermore, Aragio has released an offering of complex I/O library solutions including SSTL_2 Class I/II, SSTL_18, LVDS I/O, SubLVDS I/O, Ethernet MII/RMII driver, Ethernet GMII/RGMII driver, I2C driver, CE-ATA driver, USB 1.1, and USB 2.0 PHChartered Semiconductor Manufacturing Y Interface I/O library pads sets for the 65-nm process. This 65-nm I/O library offering now provides a complete I/O library solution to enable a variety of product applications found in the consumer, communications, commercial data processing and home office computing environments.
Aragio's library deliverables include industry-standard EDA tool views and models.
Aragio's I/O library solutions in the Common Platform technology 65-nm CMOS process technology from Chartered are available today with all metallization options supported by Chartered to qualified customers who have signed a license agreement.
