Hsinchu, Taiwan – October 2, 2019 – M31 Technology Corporation (6643-TW), a global silicon Intellectual Property (IP) boutique, today announced that M31 Technology received “TSMC’s 2019 Partner of the Year Award for Specialty Process IP” at TSMC 2019 Open Innovation Platform® Ecosystem Forum in Santa Clara, California. TSMC IP partner award criteria include TSMC IP quality management program (TSMC 9000) certification, customer evaluation feedback, number of customer design cases, and customer wafer production volume.
M31 Technology Corporation was founded in 2011. Since 2012, M31 has been a member of TSMC IP Alliance and actively involved in the development of TSMC9000-compliant IP solutions. To date, M31 has completed over 180 IPs on TSMC’s industry-leading process technologies, and has provided new product design solutions to more than 150 IC design companies. This year is the fifth time that M31 receives the TSMC award since the company was established, and it is also an affirmation of M31’s R&D technology and customer service.
“It is an honor for M31 receiving this TSMC award in such competitive semiconductor industry. Meanwhile, this honor also represents a greater responsibility and further dedication,” said Hsiao-Ping Lin, Chairman of M31 Technology. “In the future, we still adhere to the philosophy and original intention of the IP boutique, along with the commitment to our customers, continuous improvement and innovation to provide more efficient products and higher quality service.”
M31 Technology develops foundation IPs on TSMC specialty process technologies, including “High Voltage”(HV), “Bipolar/CMOS/DMOS”(BCD), and “embedded-Flash”(EF). The IPs include SRAM Compiler, Standard Cell Library, and General Purpose Input/Output Library (GPIO). At the same time, on TSMC’s 12nm, 16nm, 22nm, 28nm, 40nm processes, and other advanced processes , M31 developed a series of high-speed interface IP, including SerDes, USB, PCIe, MIPI, SATA, and other different specifications of IP products. Developments of new products, such as analog IP (e.g., ADC, PLL, LDO), multimedia-related IP (e.g., Display Port, HDMI), are expected to complete verification tests and to provide customers with more complete IP solutions.
On September 26th, 2019, M31 participated in TSMC 2019 Open Innovation Platform® Ecosystem Forum in Silicon Valley, California, the heart of the global semiconductor industry, together with other award-winning global IP leaders, to receive praise and recognition.
