S3 Group Launches 10 new Silicon Proven IP Cores

S3 Group, a global independent Mixed-Signal IP supplier and provider of Analog, Mixed-Signal, RF, Power Management and professional System-on-Chip (SoC) services to OEMs, system vendors and semiconductor companies, today announced the immediate availability of a number of new Mixed-Signal IP cores which have been developed and silicon proven during 2012. Each of these new cores is now in volume production with customers worldwide and includes the following blocks:

S3ADIQ125M10BSM65LPA       10-bit 125 Msps Pipeline ADC       SMIC 65nm LL    
S3AD54M12BT40G 12-bit 54 Msps Pipeline ADC TSMC 40nm G
S3DCC51XGF18 DC/DC Converter GF 180nm
S3AD71M10BT55G 10-bit 71Msps ADC TSMC 55nm G
S3AD54MD12BT65D 12-bit 54Msps ADC TSMC 65nm LP
S3DA300M12BCH65LPEA 12-bit 300Msps DAC GF 65nm LPe
S3REG25016T65L 250mA Voltage Regulator LDO TSMC 65nm LP
S3PLLFRACT65 Fractional PLL TSMC 65nm LP
S3ADIQ19M14BC18 14-bit 19Msps Pipeline ADC TSMC 180nm
S3RFMXWT18 RF Mixer TSMC 180nm

The cores are being used in applications such as DVB-C2/S2 Demodulators, System Power Management Unit ICs, wireless and wireline communications, LTE and Satellite Transceivers. The majority of the IP blocks delivered by S3 Group typically leverage its existing extensive IP portfolio and customize these for specific customer requirements. S3 Group’s customization capability is based on proven design methodologies, strong adherence to design process and highly professional project management. These capabilities enable the company to efficiently and repeatedly deliver right-first-time analog, RF and Mixed-Signal components in silicon.

“We have a healthy obsession with delivering value and quality to our customers and gaining and maintaining their trust is of paramount importance to us. While 2012 was another excellent year for S3 Group, our world-class engineering team is committed to continuing the expansion of a high quality IP portfolio which can be easily integrated into SoCs and is ready for production,” commented Dermot Barry, VP Silicon BU, S3 Group. “Some of the world’s largest fabless semiconductor companies, as well as many ambitious start-ups trust S3 Group with the delivery of key Mixed-Signal IP cores and our ambition is to maintain our position as a leading independent supplier, while others exit the market. We look forward to announcing further innovations and successes over the coming quarters.”

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
