Imagination and GLOBALFOUNDRIES collaborate on RF solutions for IoT

Imagination Technologies and GLOBALFOUNDRIES (GF) announced a joint collaboration to provide ultra-low-power baseband and radio frequency solutions for Bluetooth Low Energy and IEEE 802.15.4 technology, using Imagination’s Ensigma connectivity IP on GF’s 22nm FD-SOI (22FDX) platform. In addition, Imagination has joined GF’s FDXcelerator Partner Program.

The combination of 22FDX technology and Imagination’s Ensigma IP provides a power and cost efficient solution that customers can easily integrate into their System on Chip designs. The collaboration will enable mutual customers to create innovative and differentiated connected devices for the Internet of Things using Imagination’s silicon-proven, ultra-low-power Ensigma connectivity engines in GF’s ultra-efficient 22FDX process.

Ensigma IP for 22FDX provides a complete IP solution comprising analogue RF/AFE as a hard macro complete with a fully synthesizable baseband IP for applications such as wearable computing, health care, and home control. The solution for ultra-low power Bluetooth Low Energy and IEEE 802.15.4 is currently in development with lead customers, with silicon available in early Q4 2018.
