Case Study of a 55nm IoT Design

This is a case study of a recent engagement with a leading wireless communications supplier, and involved the design of a machine to machine IoT ASIC which will be used over a Zigbee Network. Sondrel worked on the DfT and Physical Implementation of the design.

The purpose of the engagement was to reduce the area size and power consumption of an existing version of the design.  ZigBee is typically used for consumer and industrial equipment that requires short-range low-rate wireless data transfer, particularly those that require long battery life and secure networking.
