NetLogic Microsystems Inc. next-generation knowledge-based processors, multi-core processors and 10/40/100Gbit PHY will now include Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd NEXSYS 28HP (28nm high performance) semiconductor process node.

As an early development partner, NetLogic Microsystems is using TSMC's 28nm node to raise the networking infrastructure performance bar, and therefore significantly differentiating its product line from the competition.

NetLogic Microsystems has launched advanced product development for multiple industry-leading product lines on the TSMC 28nm node. The 28HP process offers significant speed, and power efficiency advantages over previous process nodes. In addition, NetLogic Microsystems is developing a suite of custom high-performance circuits optimised around TSMC's 28nm node, including high-speed serial interface technology, analogue and clocking circuitry, core processing elements and other standard cells, as well as refining the design and tape-out flow for this advanced node.

"By being a consistent early adopter across four generations of process technology, NetLogic Microsystems has consistently provided very high-performance and low-power products for mission-critical network infrastructure systems," said Rick Cassidy, president of TSMC North America. "We welcome the extension of our close relationship to include NetLogic Microsystems' role as a 28nm early technology adopter."

"We are proud to have been one of the early partners for TSMC in 80-, 55-, 40- and now 28nm for our best-in-class knowledge-based processors, multi-core processors and 10/40/100Gbit PHY product families," said Ron Jankov, president and CEO at NetLogic. "By combining the superior design and architecture of our products with TSMC's proven leadership and track record in advanced manufacturing technologies, we are able to deliver highly innovative products with unprecedented performance, scalability and energy efficiency to our customers."
