Faraday Technology Allied with Arasan Chip Systems in MIPI® DSI Receiver and MIPI D-PHY

Arasan’s extensive experience with MIPI guarantees a rapid product launch

San Jose, California, March 22, 2012 – Arasan Chip Systems, Inc.  (“Arasan”), a leading provider of Total Semiconductor IP Solutions, announced today to ally with Faraday Technology Corporation (“Faraday”) in MIPI DSI Device and MIPI D-PHY.   The Arasan IP was integrated into Faraday’s ASIC customer project in order to meet their tight development schedule.

“Arasan is one of the very few vendors that can provide silicon proven IP within a very tight schedule,” said Jensen Yen, Associate Vice President of Marketing and Spokesperson at Faraday. “We are glad to work with Arasan, and by their professional support, we thus lessen our RD effort and greatly shorten the integration lead time. The satisfying results have also proved that Arasan is one of the best IP partners with extensive MIPI expertise.”

Arasan has been a contributing member of the MIPI Alliance since 2004 and their long time engagement in this organization made it easy for Faraday to shortlist its preferred IP vendors.  As a result of its MIPI Alliance participation, Arasan has developed a deep expertise in MIPI technology. Four out of five MIPI Alliance Board Members buy MIPI products from Arasan.

“It is always very rewarding for us to see a very quick tape out as we did with Faraday. We are very excited to be able to offer an extensive MIPI portfolio to a leading semiconductor customer like Faraday,” said Ron Mabry, Vice President of Sales at Arasan.
