Starting today, customers will have access to IPs such as advanced 7nm (nanometer) SRAM and TCAM, and leading-edge standard Ethernet time-sensitive networking (TSN) IP.
The company is also working on providing a system IP which includes PIM (processing in memory) that can be implemented as an AI accelerator. With these IPs, customers can jump start their advanced semiconductor device development projects, such as the development of next-generation artificial intelligence (AI) chips or ASICs for leading-edge 5G networks.
Customers developing custom chips or using FPGA devices for early development can leverage Renesas IP in their subsystem design or speed up software development, respectively, allowing them to focus resources on their specialty areas, speed up the development process, and bring highly competitive products to market.
Customers who prefer to use existing software assets can take advantage of Renesas IP assets to achieve more efficient system development by reducing the resources required to develop, verify, and evaluate software and boards.
“Since we first opened our IP license portfolio last September, the responses from fabless semiconductor companies and manufacturers has been resoundingly positive and we are pleased to continue bringing new IP offerings to the market and help accelerate the development of next-generation technologies,” said Tetsuya Matsumoto, Vice President, Shared R&D Core IP Division at Renesas Electronics Corporation.
“We are also extremely pleased that IPs using Renesas technology extends the provision of semiconductor devices, and is enabling other markets, such as users’ in-house custom semiconductors, mass production in FPGAs, and deviceless advance technological development efforts.”
