Analog Bits Joins the Silicon Catalyst In-Kind Partner Ecosystem

Silicon Valley, California May 21, 2024 – Silicon Catalyst, an incubator exclusively focused on accelerating semiconductor solutions, announced that Analog Bits, Inc. has joined as a new member of its In-Kind Partner (IKP) ecosystem.

Portfolio Companies in the Silicon Catalyst Incubator will gain direct access to the Analog Bits wide portfolio of precision clocking macros PLLs and XTAL and RC Oscillators, Sensors to monitor Temperature, Voltage Drops, Voltage Spikes, System Power Integrity with integrated or separately available bandgaps and ADC’s.

Analog Bits is the leader in developing and delivering low-power integrated clocking, sensors and interconnect IP that are pervasive in virtually all of today’s semiconductors.  Their mixed-signal IP connects the logic voltage of synthesized digital logic to external physical world using unique programmable interconnect solutions, such as multi-protocol SERDES, C2C I/Os and differential transmitters and receivers.


Mahesh Tirupattur, Executive Vice President, Analog Bits

“We’re pleased to accelerate innovation of start-ups that are incubated by Silicon Catalyst. Mixed signal IPs are key differentiators for advanced SoC’s. Enabling high aspiring start-ups chosen by Silicon Catalyst with our portfolio of silicon proven IP’s will help get prototypes quickly to market. We are all about innovation and accelerating innovation of start-ups which has always been in our DNA.”

Tarun Verma, Managing Partner, Silicon Catalyst

“We’re very pleased to have Analog Bits as our newest IKP, as they are a leading supplier of mixed-signal IP with a reputation for easy and reliable integration into advanced SOCs. With billions of IP cores fabricated in customer silicon, from 0.35um to 2nm processes, Analog Bits has established an outstanding heritage of "first-time-working” with foundries and IDMs.”
