Mixel Continues to Gain Market Share with Global Customers Deploying its MIPI Solutions
SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 23, 2013 — Mixel®, the leader in mobile mixed-signal intellectual property (IP), announced today that both Nufront, a leader in Chinese mobile communication and computing, and Shenzhen Yunyinggu Technology Co. Ltd. (YYG), an innovative Chinese high-tech company with focus on next-generation display technology, have both licensed multiple Mixel MIPI® IP, successfully incorporated the IP into their products, and are at various stages of high volume production.
Mixel provided Nufront with MIPI DigRF Transceivers in both 65nm and 40nm process nodes. Nufront achieved first time success with both silicon and has gone into production at both nodes.
“We selected Mixel because of their proven-track record in the MIPI market-place and their silicon-proven technology,” said Min Luo, Nufront’s Director of IC Development. “Achieving first-silicon success at multiple nodes enabled us to rapidly move to production, and have our product designed-in by multiple Nufront customers. The close partnership we have developed with Mixel has proven to be an asset to Nufront as we port our products to multiple foundries.”
YYG first Licensed Mixel’s MIPI D-PHY in 130nm and is now transferring its innovative MIPI DSI solution to production. YYG is now moving forward with its second-generation product at 65nm. Both products employ five MIPI IP from Mixel, namely D-PHY TX, D-PHY RX, MIPI PLL, DSI TX controller, and DSI RX controller. While YYG is licensing all 5 IP from Mixel as a complete MIPI solution, the two controller IPs were developed by Northwest Logic, an active participant in Mixel’s MIPI Central Ecosystem Partnership Program, which brings together best-of-class MIPI ecosystem stakeholders.
“Mixel has provided us with an outstanding support on our first generation product, and they were able to rapidly deliver their MIPI solution to meet our tight time-to-market requirements,” said Yan Lin, YYG’s VP of Engineering. “Because of this exceptional support on our first product, we decided to work with Mixel again on our second generation product, this time at a more advanced node, and a different foundry. We are delighted that Mixel and NWL have been able to customize their IP with added features that will help us differentiate our display solution and win a larger share of our target market.”
“We are glad to see Mixel expanding its share in the Pacific Rim, a very dynamic region for MIPI adoption, and that many of our existing customers are demonstrating their loyalty to the Mixel brand by choosing Mixel time and again,” said Ashraf Takla, Mixel President and CEO. “We are also delighted that our methodology of continuous improvement of our existing IP, such as size and power reduction and feature differentiation, much of it in collaboration with our customers and partners, are bringing back value to the whole MIPI ecosystem.”
