Mixel’s silicon-proven IP cores are ready-to-integrate and highly configurable to cater to a wide range of applications, allowing companies to develop new systems rapidly while dramatically reducing risk, time-to-market, and development costs. With the unique requirements of customers in mind, Mixel comes up with ingenious ways to customize IP to help differentiate their product in the semiconductor industry. Those enhancements become a part of the Mixel IP’s distinctive feature sets, which then benefit other future customers.
Driving excellence in mixed-signal IP has been the cornerstone of Mixel since its inception in 1998. “Back then, the IP business was unproven and viewed with apprehensions,” notes Ashraf. Today, however, the scenario has changed significantly and the rising complexity in SoC designs has made it necessary for semiconductor companies to partner with external IP providers to meet their multifarious requirements.
Mixel’s active contribution to the MIPI Alliance since 2006 further highlights their prowess. Illustrating a successful implementation of their MIPI portfolio, Takla elucidates their patent-pending MIPI D-PHY RX+ configuration, created to enable their customers to achieve full-speed production test and in-system testability, while minimizing power and area penalty.

Through its 20 year history as a privately held firm, Mixel has garnered a stellar reputation in the IP market. As a roadmap, “We are committed to retaining our leadership position in the MIPI market, further expanding our IP portfolio, and accelerating our progress to cover advanced nodes,” concludes Takla.
