Rochester Reintroduces LSI CMOS Gate Array Product Line
News Release from:
Rochester Electronics LLC
18 April 2011
Rochester Electronics, the world's largest authorized manufacturer and distributor of end-of-life and mature semiconductors, is providing continuing manufacturing services of LSI Corporation's entire HCMOS (high-speed complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) ASIC (application-specific integrated circuits) gate array product offering.
With authorization from LSI, Rochester has the capability to re-create and manufacture the complete silicon-gate HCMOS logic array product portfolio, which includes more than 10,000 product designs via nine technology nodes ranging from 3 micron to 0.35 micron.
Rochester's re-creation and manufacturing services eliminate the need for costly system re-designs. Rochester has already re-created, manufactured, and stocked fully qualified and validated customer designs using LSI's 2-micron LL7000 channeled gate array series (CMOS7K Series), 1.0-micron LCA100K channel-free gate array series, 0.6-micron LCA300K channel-free gate array series, 0.50-micron LCA500K channel-free gate array series, and 0.35-micron G10 cell-based series.
LSI provided its gate array product IP and hundreds of gate-array design archive databases to Rochester, enabling the continuing supply of authorized devices through Rochester's Semiconductor Replication Process(TM) (SRP(TM)). Rochester's sophisticated SRP combines archive identification, teardown of sample product, process match, source-to-target comparison, detailed SPICE analysis, and testing to the original manufacturer's specifications and beyond. This process guarantees that the Rochester-manufactured components exactly match the form, fit, and function of the LSI original gate array devices.
Equipment manufacturers serving military, aerospace, and industrial applications can experience long product life cycles. Extending the life of LSI's CMOS ASIC gate array products can save customers the cost of having to re-design or rely on suspect parts from unauthorized sources, said Paul Gerrish, co-president at Rochester Electronics. We are contractually licensed by LSI to re-create, manufacture, and stock the entire gate array product offering, making Rochester the only authorized continuing, long-term manufacturer/distributor of LSI gate array products.
Rochester can also re-create and manufacture LSI's 1.5-micron LL10000 compacted channel-free gate array series (CMOS10K Series), 1.5-micron LMA9K channel-free gate array series, and any other LSI gate array device.
