AMALIA™ IP re-use platform: reimagining analog IP reuse

Our AMALIA platform allows our customers to reduce the cost, time to market and if required, improve the performance in their designs. One of the key benefits of this platform is improving the ability to monetise the existing portfolio of IPs.

Thalia’s AMALIA IP re-use platform revolutionizes the reuse of analog and mixed signal integrated circuits – migrating, refining and optimizing existing IP for new applications and technologies. This enables IP houses and IC design companies to re-use and diversify product ranges quickly and cost effectively to meet evolving market demand and reach new markets.

We have successfully delivered up to 50% savings in development time, costs and resources on a wide range of products, technologies and process nodes, from 350nm down to 22nm. Thalia has a proven track record of delivering designs from base band to high GHz applications in advanced technologies, and in some of the industry’s most demanding application areas.

In addition to dramatically improving time-to-market, the scalability of the AMALIA platform:

  • Optimises existing IP for new applications and technologies
  • Qualifies IP in the target technology with the technology analyzer
  • Cost-effectively delivers exactly the right feature and performance combination to tight deadlines
  • Enables in-house design teams to focus on innovation

Whatever the process technology, Thalia works with IP vendors, helping them to respond quickly and efficiently to market demands.

IP reuse

Choosing the right analog and mixed signal process for your design can have a substantial impact on profitability and performance. Thalia's AMALIA platform makes porting IPs between process technologies, centering and verifying the results, quicker and more cost effective.

IP portfolio development

Thalia’s approach to analog IP design and reuse is effective whether you’re creating a range of product variants, designing analog IP from scratch, or looking to tune the performance of existing designs

IP performance tuning

The AMALIA platform is underpinned by Thalia’s specialist approach to analog IP reuse, providing an “intelligent assistant” approach that fits with the industry’s required approach to increasing automation.


Thalia’s customers are migrating, optimizing and creating key analog blocks for Wifi, Bluetooth and power management IPs. Read our case studies to find out exactly how we can help your analog design effort

Case study: LDO

Thalia saved one of its customers 60% in design time and substantial costs, by generating a complete family of LDO variants from a single 20mA design.

Case study: LNA

Thalia achieved design centering for intermodulation and power reduction of a low-noise amplifier solution with savings in project cycle time of more than 50%.

Case study: PLL

PLLs are a vital element in applications such as WiFi and Bluetooth radio. Thalia ported and optimized a 40MHz customer design in a matter of weeks

Thalia helps us to deliver exactly the right feature and performance combination for our customers, against demanding time-to-market and cost requirements. Thalia’s combination of novel design automation technology and analog design expertise is unique in the market: we’ve already seen a positive impact on our ability to deliver against tight customer deadlines
