Analog IP development
Designing analog variants or derivatives using AMALIA™
One area in which Thalia’s approach is particularly effective is in the generation of derivatives and variants of existing analog IP or IC designs. PLLs, ADCs, PMICs, LDOs and LNAs are all available with a variety of detailed specifications for frequency voltage, power output and so on – each appropriate to a particular market requirement.
The design cycle time of, for example, a single variant of a buck or boost converter can be more than six months. So creating a portfolio of devices to address a broad range of market requirements takes substantial development resources, deployed over long cycle times at a high cost.
Our approach leverages a unique combination of highly capable automation software and highly experienced analog/RF designers to accelerate design validation, tuning and centering by an order of magnitude. This results in rapid testing of designs, quickly nudging the design to meeting the requirements.
