Lawrenceville, Ga. – February 12, 2019 – Silicon Creations, a leading supplier of high-performance analog and mixed-signal intellectual property (IP), announced that its phase-locked loop (PLL) technology has been deployed in Canaan Creative’s 7nm mining chip.
Canaan, the leader in offering blockchain hardware and software solutions and designing ASIC chips announced in August 2018 that they had started selling their new AvalonminerA9 product based on their 7nm chips which are mass produced at TSMC. Canaan’s chips are known as the global leader in blockchain repetitive computing.
“We congratulate Canaan on this ground-breaking chip and are proud to be part of Canaan’s success,” said Andrew Cole, vice president at Silicon Creations. “We’ve now provided PLLs for both their 7nm and 16nm Miner chips, and look forward to continuing to provide PLL technology to Canaan to help them maintain their technology leadership position as their products evolve.”
Silicon Creations produces a wide range of PLLs for most advanced process nodes. These include general-purpose Fractional-N PLLs, IoT PLLs with 32kHz RTC reference clock, Low-area Core voltage PLLs and Deskew PLLs for DDR interfaces. The company’s PLLs are used in almost every vertical market and are an excellent choice for smart phones, battery-operated products, networking chips, energy-efficient and IoT chips, portable audio, set-top boxes, flat panel displays, high-performance computing, and mass storage.
