Technology Wanted

SoC (System on a Chip) Patents

Integrated circuit (IC) systems integrating all components of a computer into a single chip.

Overview

Buying patents related to building digital, analog, mixed-signal, and often radio-frequency functions—all on a single chip substrate. We are interested in both the hardware and the software that controls the microcontroller, microprocessor or DSP cores, peripherals and interfaces.

Hardware areas of interest include:

- Microcontroller, microprocessor or DSP core(s).

- Memory blocks including a selection of ROM, RAM, EEPROM and flash memory.

- Timing sources including oscillators and phase-locked loops.

- Peripherals including counter-timers, real-time timers and power-on reset generators.

- External interfaces including industry standards such as USB, FireWire, Ethernet, USART, SPI.

- Analog interfaces including ADCs and DACs.

- Voltage regulators and power management circuits.

Also keen to buy patents related to various embedded system applications.
