Agile Analog declares RC Oscillator IP

At DAC on sales space 2340

Cambridge, UK — July 11, 2022 — Agile Analog™, the analog IP innovators, has introduced the supply of its new RC Oscillator IP. That is the primary in a brand new household of analog IP blocks that the corporate is launching which can be designed to make the mixing of analog circuits onto ASICs very straightforward.

“These type a part of the library of analog IP circuits that our automated answer generator, Composa™, makes use of to create IP blocks that precisely match the necessities of consumers,” defined Barry Paterson, Agile Analog’s CEO. “Their modular design signifies that they are often mixed collectively to type sub-system options rushing up design instances and decreasing danger as they’ve all been totally examined and verified.”

The agileOSC RC relies on a conventional structure which permits the frequency to be trimmed to take away the consequences of course of variation. It may also be configured as a Free Operating Clock (FRC) the place a excessive accuracy clock isn’t required. With a start-up time of sometimes 10 us, it has a frequency vary of 20 KHz to 100 MHz with an accuracy of as much as +5%. It has a low energy consumption of sometimes 100 uA at 10 MHz which is far lower than an equal discrete analog part and highlights the good thing about integrating analog circuits onto the primary chip.


Historically, analog IP blocks must be manually redesigned for every utility and course of expertise however Agile Analog has a singular approach to mechanically generate analog IP to precisely meet the client’s specs and course of expertise. Referred to as Composa™, it makes use of tried and examined analog IP circuits which can be within the firm’s Composa library. Successfully, the design-once-and-re-use-many-times mannequin of digital IP now applies to analog IP for the primary time. Because the analog IP circuits within the Composa library have been extensively examined and utilized in earlier designs, and are totally validated each time they’re generated, this provides an analogous stage of reassurance to the digital IP world’s ‘silicon-proven’. All the key foundries are supported together with TSMC, GlobalFoundries, Samsung Foundry and SMIC in addition to different IC foundries and producers.

About Agile Analog Ltd.

Analog IP must be totally different for every design. That’s the reason Agile Analog™ has made a brand new means of doing issues, conceived by among the finest minds within the business. We offer a variety of analog IP that’s customised to your wants rapidly, to a better high quality, and on any semiconductor course of. Contact us at to seek out out extra.
