Leading provider of mixed-signal IP reaches 25-year milestone serving IP customers worldwide
One key product in Mixel’s mixed-signal IP portfolio is its MIPI® PHY IPs. Mixel joined the MIPI Alliance in 2006 and has been a Contributor member ever since, actively participating in the development of all MIPI PHY specifications. Mixel was the first IP provider to demonstrate silicon proven MIPI D-PHYSM, MIPI C-PHYSM, and MIPI M-PHY®.
“For over 10 years now, Mixel has been a trusted partner. Mixel provided us with numerous mixed-signal IPs that has been integrated into multiple generations of NXP flagship ICs, and deployed by various NXP global organizations,” said Mike Leary, Vice President of Engineering at NXP. “It has been a great collaborative effort between our two teams. Mixel consistently goes the extra mile to address our requirements and help differentiate our products. Their support through the years have been outstanding.”
“Mixel joined the MIPI Alliance during our formative years and has been an active contributor to the development of MIPI specifications and a strong advocate of the Alliance ever since,” said Sanjiv Desai, chair of the MIPI Alliance. “Mixel has played and continues to play an important role in growing the MIPI ecosystem. It has been great to see both MIPI and Mixel grow together over many years.”
To support its worldwide customer base, Mixel founded a branch in Cairo, Egypt in 2011. Starting with a team of four, the Mixel Egypt has grown continuously ever since with a current staff of over eighty fulltime employees and is one of the largest semiconductor employers in the country.
“Over the years, we have integrated multiple Mixel MIPI IPs with various configurations. All our joint projects have been a first-time silicon-success,” said Jim Hall, Vice President of Hardware at Perceive. “Mixel has provided us with outstanding service, working collaboratively to address our specific needs, and has become a key contributor to our product development. We are happy to celebrate Mixel’s successes and congratulate the company on this great achievement.”
Mixel IPs have been integrated into many of today’s most exciting applications, such as mobile platforms, automotive, IoT, VR/AR/MR, and wearables, among many others. Many of Mixel’s customers have gone on to win many industry awards over the years.
“Mixel has been our partner for many years now, with whom we shared so many milestones including winning the Best FPGA of the Year Award at the 2020 China IC Design Achievement Award Ceremony,” said Mr. David Qi, COO at Hercules Microelectronics. “Mixel’s MIPI IP solution was essential to our product development, and we would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Mixel on their impressive 25th anniversary.”
“I would like to personally thank our loyal customers and partners for their continued trust and contribution and thank all our employees for their hard work and dedication through the years.
