INVECAS Inc. and GLOBALFOUNDRIES announced today that INVECAS will provide IP and end-to-end ASIC design services as a part of the foundry’s FDXcelerator Partner Program, an ecosystem designed to facilitate 22FDX SoC designs for tomorrow’s intelligent systems. The collaboration accelerates the adoption of FDX technology in applications spanning Internet-of-Things (IoT), mobile, RF connectivity, and networking markets.
INVECAS will work closely with GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ technology teams to develop and verify a range of intellectual property (IP) for the company’s 22FDX process. Moreover, INVECAS will offer comprehensive ASIC design services to help customers realize SoC designs with high confidence and low risk.
“Our objective is to provide silicon-proven IP solutions and system-level expertise to address the difficult issues of design complexity facing ASIC designers today,” said Dasaradha Gude, chairman and CEO, INVECAS. “We are glad to be an initial partner in GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ FDXcelerator Program, a ground-breaking initiative to enable a broad range of customers and accelerate time-to-volume for 22FDX.”
“We are pleased to expand our strategic relationship with INVECAS and welcome them as an initial member of the FDXcelerator Partner Program,” said Alain Mutricy, senior vice president of product management at GLOBALFOUNDRIES. “In addition to the comprehensive portfolio of FDX-optimized IP, our customers can now access INVECAS’ full suite of services to realize their SoC designs on time and with highest quality.”
With the recent announcement of the company’s next-generation 12FDX technology, the FDXcelerator Partner Program builds upon GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ industry-first FD-SOI roadmap, a lower-cost migration path for designers on advanced nodes. By participating in FDXcelerator and continuing to expand its IP offering to support a wider range of FDX customers, INVECAS is well positioned as a leader in the adoption and growth of the FDX platform. Moreover, the FDXcelerator Partner Program broadens the technology collaboration between the companies, including tighter interlock around quality, qualification and development methodology.
