“Our newest products, N25 32bit and NX25 64bit RISC-V based cores coupled with a mature toolchain, will provide even more value to customers in these advanced nodes by providing both high speed and power efficiency,” says Andes CTO Charlie Su.

Andes announced it was supporting RISC-V open-source architecture in May 2017.

The Andes ISA, called AndeStar V5, supports 64-bits and RISC-V as a subset and will bring the open, compact, and modular RISC-V into mainstream SoC applications.

The AndesCore NX25 in a typical configuration will deliver a clock frequency of over 1GHz with area of only 67K gates and with power consumption as little as 17 µW/MHz in a TSMC 28nm process.

Corigine used its USB 3.1 Gen 1 IP experience to deliver a compact USB 3.1 Gen 2 IP core with a reduced power, memory-efficient and configurable design. A complete development environment from Corigine includes the PC host and device controllers, verification IP, IP subsystems, IP prototyping and software development kits, enabling shorter design cycles for customers.

M31 Technology USB 3.1 PHY IP is extremely popular and well received by their existing customers for maturity, quality, compact size and support ranging from most popular to most advanced nodes. M31 Technology believes in first time silicon success and offers complete and high quality solutions to their customers.
