Jazz Semiconductor, Inc. has licensed its high-precision RF models and design kits for RF and high digital content System-on-Chip (SoC) products, with Fujitsu Microelectronics Limited. The arrangement creates a time-to-market advantage for RF CMOS customers who need 90nm and 65nm technology, while also providing ongoing royalties to Jazz.

“Jazz’s RF models and design kits address the key challenges engineers face in providing optimal products while meeting stringent deadlines,” said Tatsuya Yamazaki, Vice President in charge of the ASIC/COT business of Fujitsu Microelectronics Limited.

Jazz has fast time revenue by providing advanced Analog-Intensive Mixed-Signals (AIMS) modeling platforms and enhanced statistical analysis tools, which let customers optimize their designs. The company also offers a Process Control Model Tool (PCMT) and the Jazz Inductor Toolbox (JIT).

“The collaboration between Jazz and Fujitsu is a cost-effective approach to providing optimal solutions aimed at the wireless SoC market. Jazz's continued relationship with Fujitsu aids in the expansion of our technology roadmap, and we will also continue to focus on high-speed AIMS solutions for customers targeting best-of-breed technology down to the 130nm node,” commented Chuck Fox, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales, Tower Semiconductor.

The RF CMOS Physical Design Kits (PDK's) are currently available for 90nm and 65nm process technologies.
