Realtek Adopts Faraday’s 28nm HLP 7-track miniLib™ for TV SoC Solution

2015/04/07 Advantageous Die Area, Power Leakage, and Performance with Guaranteed Mass-Production Quality

HSINCHU, Taiwan – April 07, 2015 –Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (TAIEX: 2379), one of the world’s leading IC providers, and Faraday Technology Corporation (TAIEX: 3035), a leading fabless ASIC/SoC and IP provider, today announced their collaboration in the development of one of Realtek’s most recent TV SoC solutions. With the adoption of Faraday’s 28nm HLP (High-Performance, Low-Power) 7-track miniLib™, Realtek’s solution comfortably meets the stringent requirements for low power-consumption and compact footprint in this market.

Faraday’s 28nm HLP 7-track miniLib™, with an optimal balance of size, performance, and power consumption, provides a rich set of cell functions for efficient logic arrangement, and abundant driving strengths for fast timing closure. The elaborate layout lessens chip designers’ routing efforts and shortens the design time in SoC implementation. These design techniques greatly facilitate Realtek in achieving an aggressive time-to-market schedule for its TV SoC solution.

“Realtek is committed to offering the most competitive TV SoC solutions in the market. By adopting Faraday’s 28nm HLP 7-track miniLib IP, we optimize chip performance, lower footprint size, and reduce power leakage to achieve low operating temperatures. Realtek looks forward to additional cooperation with Faraday on some of our upcoming advanced products in the future,” said Yee-Wei Huang, Vice President and Spokesperson at Realtek Semiconductor.

“We have had a long and close IP cooperation with Realtek spanning from their communication networking, computer peripheral, to TV solutions,” said Jensen Yen, Associate Vice President of Marketing and Spokesperson at Faraday Technology. “We are excited to have a leading chip company like Realtek adopt Faraday’s 28nm HLP 7-track miniLib™, further proving Faraday IPs’ competitiveness in terms of size, performance, and the benefit for customer solutions’ time-to-market”, he added.
