Silicon Creations Reaches Milestone of 10 Million Wafers in Production with TSMC


Silicon Creations, a leading supplier of high-performance analog and mixed-signal intellectual property (IP), announced a significant milestone: surpassing 10 million wafers in production containing Silicon Creations IP in collaboration with TSMC, the world's leading dedicated semiconductor foundry.

This achievement - which includes designs from 180nm through 3nm nodes - underscores the breadth and impact of Silicon Creations' contributions to the semiconductor industry. There are now approximately 10 billion chips with Silicon Creations IP manufactured on TSMC's industry leading processes worldwide.

"We and our customers share a longstanding trust in delivering critical high-volume products. Since 2010, Silicon Creations has supported thousands of tape-outs of TSMC-customer SoCs, showcasing our reliability in powering a diverse range of glbal technologies and applications," said Randy Caplan, Co-founder of Silicon Creations.



Silicon Creations' IP has been included in more than 1,500 mass production tape-outs with TSMC, further demonstrating the scale and success of their collaboration. This partnership has deepened significantly over the past two decades, especially since the introduction of TSMC's FinFET process nodes.

"Silicon Creations has consistently demonstrated its commitment to innovation and quality, making significant contributions to the growth of TSMC Open Innovation Platform® (OIP) ecosystem and customer design success," said Dan Kochpatcharin, head of the Design Infrastructure Management Division at TSMC. "Together, we have delivered high quality, proven solutions that meet the growing demands of the industry, and we look forward to continuing our joint efforts in helping customers quickly and reliably launch their semiconductor innovation to the market."


In October 2023, TSMC honored Silicon Creations with their seventh consecutive OIP Partner of the Year Award for Analog/Mixed-Signal IP, recognizing the company's pursuit of excellence in next-generation design enablement.

Silicon Creations' technology is in production across a wide range of process technologies, from 180nm through 3nm, with 2nm IP under development. The company's commitment to customer success is evidenced by an outstanding track record of working first silicon to mass production in customer designs.
