(Building Blocks - Silicon IP: Key for Re-use & Productivity)
Today‘s state-of-the-art custom System on Chip (SoC) solutions require complex analogue and mixed-signal capabilities, as well as digital building blocks such as processors, peripherals, cores, codec- and other complex functions to be integrated on silicon.
A broad, flexible and reliable line-up of pre-verified, standard compliant Intellectual Property (IP) blocks is key for first-time-right silicon with shortest turn-around times and efficient effort investments.
As a broad-liner and market leader in SoC technology, Toshiba is the right partner for IP-rich complex SoC products, offering optimal solutions and support for:
Toshiba ASIC & Foundry Mixed-Signal IP Strategy
Toshiba has recognised the significant limitations of using IP from third party design houses and has established a unique strategy that ensures complex analogue and mixed-signal hard macro IP cores can be easily integrated into silicon with minimum turn-around-time (TAT) and risk.
- The importance and challenges of process-dependent IP
- Toshiba's minimum risk IP strategy
- IP development and support (IDM model)
- Customer developed mixed-signal IP
- Supporting SoC implementation

Digital RISC Processor Cores
Embedded Memories Macros
No system with micro-controller works without memory! Toshiba offers a wide line-up of various types of embedded memory.
And if on-chip memory will not fit, Toshiba provides solution with memory dies in System-in-Package (SiP).
Basic Mixed Signal Cores
Toshiba offers a large portfolio of basic mixed-signal cores. Our local mixed-signal engineering expert team supports Q&A around applications and feasibility studies, implements and adapts / customize IP for specific applications.
