Uniquify Launches ideas2silicon Design Services Platform

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- May 24, 2012 -- Uniquify ( www.uniquify.com) today launched ideas2silicon™, a new and comprehensive design services platform that spans chip specification and design through volume delivery of packaged and tested parts.

ideas2silicon turns the model upside down by offering faster turnaround, lower costs and a transparent business model that gives project teams complete visibility into the cost structure. "The traditional 'turnkey' model is not working and we're doing something about it," says Josh Lee, chief executive officer and founder of Uniquify, provider of ASIC/SoC design and manufacturing services and patented low-power double data rate (DDR) subsystem IP developer. "Projects teams have been frustrated with the classic model, as it effectively locks them into an expensive business relationship that is hard to change."

Perseus™, a proven proprietary design framework for fast, repeatable and consistent turnaround on complex designs, forms the foundation of ideas2silicon. It provides a disciplined methodology for managing the design and closure of complex system-on-chip (SoC) and Super SoC (SSoC) designs with multiple processors, special-purpose processing engines, on-chip networks, memories and different peripheral and I/O functions.

Additionally, Uniquify's design services expertise comes from serving as the design arm for more than 120 fabless semiconductor companies, electronic system manufacturers, semiconductor foundries, IDMs, ASIC companies and EDA vendors.

Introducing ideas2silicon Design Services Platform
ideas2silicon delivers predictable and efficient execution of the most complex ASIC, SoC and SSoC designs. A key component is an automated capability for rapidly selecting, qualifying and integrating IP blocks that form the backbone of a new design.

Availability of this IP affords project teams earlier testing and verification of their own differentiating design blocks and IP. Services range from specification and architectural design, field programmable gate array (FPGA) prototyping, register transfer level (RTL) design and verification through complete physical design and verification.

Uniquify's highly qualified design team has expertise in advanced 65-, 40- and 28-nanometer process technologies from foundries including TSMC, Samsung, GLOBALFOUNDRIES and SMIC. These design experts have experience meeting the stringent performance, low power, OCV-aware, IP integration and verification, design for manufacturing and requirements of a project team's most challenging SoC designs.

Uniquify partners with EDA suppliers, including Cadence, Mentor and Synopsys, for the automation software needed to support these complex designs within Perseus.

Expertise in High-Performance IP Development, Implementation
With SoCs containing an IP content of 50-60% or more, Uniquify has developed a portfolio of patented, high-performance DDR memory subsystems that can be applied for rapid implementation to address the need for tested and pre-qualified IP.

Uniquify is driving a new IP paradigm that recognizes that delivering IP functionality alone is not sufficient, but must be "variation aware" as well. It developed variation-aware, high-performance and silicon-proven Self-Calibrating Logic and Dynamic Self-Calibrating Logic (DSCL) IP for DDR memory subsystems to solve both static and dynamic variation problems during system operation. This patented technology includes controllers, PHY and I/O for use on a variety of applications.

About Uniquify
Uniquify is a privately held, rapidly growing application specific integrated circuit (ASIC)/system-on-chip (SoC) design and Super SoC (SSoC) integration and manufacturing services provider and an innovative developer and provider of patented, low-power DDR memory sub-system semiconductor IP. The company has design centers in Santa Clara, Calif., Pune, India, and Seoul, Korea. It maintains sales offices in Santa Clara and Seoul, along with Taipei, Taiwan, and Tel Aviv, Israel. With more than 100 employees, Uniquify offers 65-, 40- and 28-nanometer ASIC and SoC design expertise, SSoC integration and manufacturing services and high-performance IP to leading semiconductor and system companies worldwide.
