IP Product

Faraday is one of the few leading ASIC vendors with a comprehensive self-developed IP portfolio. Faraday's IPs are silicon and production proven in the ASIC projects for global customers, covering wide range of applications, including consumer electronics, multimedia, display, communication, networking, and PC peripherals, etc.

Faraday's broad IP portfolio includes Cell Library, Memory Compiler, Processor Cores, Analog IP, Peripheral IP, and complete Interface IP solutions consisting of controllers, PHYs for widely-used protocols. These in-house developed IPs help eliminate designers' integration risks and lower customers' IP licensing costs, which especially matter in today's complex ASIC and SoC design. Also, Faraday partners with 3rd party IP vendors to provide an even more comprehensive, easy, and efficient one-stop IP and ASIC services.

Furthermore, With the long-year experiences in IP development (since 1993), Faraday has been equipped with the robust IP customization flexibility and capabilities to meet customers' specific product requirement, in terms of power, size, and performance, etc., and to achieve market window at the same time.

Cell Library
Faraday's full set of cell library offers generic core cells, Power Slash Kit (PSK) for low power requirement, and M1-start ECO cells, all with various Vt device packages. For specific applications, the cost-effective miniLib™ or ultra-high-speed series enable customers to easily achieve their optimal SoC target.

Memory Compiler
Faraday provides a variety of memory compilers that are optimized in speed, power, and density, ranging from 0.5µm to 28nm to meet different application requirements. Faraday's memory compilers allow users to generate lots of memory options, including words, bits/bytes and aspect ratios with an easy-to-use GUI for memory instance selection and comparison.

Processor Cores
As one of the few ARM instruction set architecture licensees in the world to develop FA series ARM-compliant RISC CPU cores, Faraday implements the FA CPU family by unique CPU technologies and makes breakthroughs in micro-architecture design and data path optimization. Faraday's complete embedded processor solutions have been silicon proven through mass production and have been successfully deployed to a number of well-known system houses and design companies worldwide.

Interface IP
Faraday offers a broad portfolio of silicon-proven Interface IP designed to meet varying system architectures and standards required for today's SoC. Faraday's broad array of IP solutions, covering the most widely used interfaces such as PCI Express, USB 2.0, USB 3.1, DDR, SATA, MIPI, and Ethernet, are optimized for the best performance, and most solid ESD protection.

Analog IP
Faraday's process-optimized analog and mixed-signal IPs cover a wide range of applications. The high-speed serial interfaces provide excellent bandwidth performance; the portfolio includes IPs for consumer connectivity, computing and storage interfaces. Clock generating/de-skewing PLLs provide competitive frequency range and jitter. AD/DA converters feature a wide range of resolution and sample rate.

Peripheral IP
Faraday provides a comprehensive set of peripheral IPs for AMBA-based SoC design, including high-speed interface controller, memory controller, system controller and companion IPs. All IPs are fully compatible to AMBA 2.0 and AMBA 3.0 protocol. And all IPs have passed Faraday's strict verification flow to ensure of the high-quality and bug-free before delivery.
