Analog Bits to demonstrate Low Power SERDES at TSMC’s Open Innovation Platform® Ecosystem Forum



  • Analog Bits will demonstrate this licensable IP core running on TSMC’s 12nm process geometry.
  • Implementations of this same multi-protocol SERDES architecture are available on a variety of TSMC process nodes and support speeds of up to 25Gb/s.

Santa Clara, CA, April 23rd, 2019 – Analog Bits (, an industry leading provider of low-power mixed-signal IP (Intellectual Property) solutions, with a low picojoule-per-bit SERDES macro, will demonstrate this licensable IP core running on TSMC’s 12nm process geometry. Implementations of this same multi-protocol SERDES architecture are available on a variety of TSMC process nodes and support speeds of up to 25Gb/s. The combination of high performance and low power make this an excellent solution for short reach, chip-to-chip applications while support for multiple protocols means that the same SERDES architecture can be used in silicon devices requiring interfaces like SAS and PCIe. Analog Bits' products are used by numerous customers, ranging from current industry leaders such as Microchip to new companies like Wave Computing. Products include other mixed-signal IP such as PLLs, IOs and Sensors and are ported to TSMC’s advanced manufacturing nodes – including 7nm.


  • New ultra-low power, multiprotocol SERDES architecture in TSMC 12FFC for low power, short reach applications
  • 25Gb/s-class high performance SERDES for Data Center and enterprise applications.
