One of the mandates of QualCore Logic Ltd's Hyderabad design centre is the development of innovative IPs. QualCore believes that its portfolio of silicon-proven IP has been the key to its successful execution of complex SoC or ASIC design projects, at reduced development cost, while meeting the requirement of declining project cycles.

QualCore's design centre at Hyderabad provides complex VLSI SoC design services, employing its analogue, mixed-signal and digital IPs in 130, 90 and 65nm process technologies.

"Our design centre in India had gained substantial expertise in analogue and mixed-signal segment, over a period of time. This had helped us to develop rich portfolio of innovative IPs for multiple markets," said QualCore Logic India's chief executive officer, Mahendra Jain.

The design centre has successfully executed many SoC designs from specifications to full chip development. "Till date, the design centre had implemented more than 100 tape outs," Jain shared. The Hyderabad centre also provides verification, front and backend services, and porting services.

QualCore has traditionally had a thrust on building a complete complement of analogue and digital IP cores. "QualCore has built a repertoire of over 400 analogue, digital and mixed signal IPs, to address the needs of the consumer, communication, computing, and storage markets. Most of our IPs are revenue drivers for the company, which are licensed to customers for a fixed fee for single or multi use," Jain explained.

The company has developed IPs for signal conditioning, high speed system interfaces, multimedia interfaces such as HDMI, high speed PLLs for clock generation, and high speed I/Os for voice, video, data and imaging applications.

Currently, the design centre at Hyderabad is developing IP solutions for controlled radiation therapy medical application, configurable universal controller ASIC realisation solution for home appliance application, porting of 90nm designs, verification services for high end computing designs, and successful SoC integration of QualCore IPs for CCTV camera applications.

The centre's key challenges for the future will lie in developing indigenous IC products and ASICs for the Indian and Asia Pacific markets. "The R&D team will be expanded with required product definition knowledge and architectural skills for developing cost effective product solutions," shared Jain.
