The Milton Hall-based company aims to extend its artificial intelligence-driven technology to enable more complex analog IP, which will significantly expand its product line.

Analog IP, or analog circuits, provide the connection between the real world and digital world, and are required on all microchips.

But analog design has been something of a bottleneck for the semiconductor industry, as it has been a laborious, manually-intensive process. This has led to IP that is either very specific and costly to change, or a more generic IP that is inefficient on area and power.

Agile Analog’s technology automates the design and delivery of these circuits. It is programmatic, systematic and repeatable, creating analog IP that is more verifiable, more robust and more reliable.

The two-year project, 45 per cent funded by Innovate UK, the innovation agency, aims to develop new categories of IP to complement the VC-funded start-up’s existing range of products. The components can then be further integrated to provide even more complex analog systems.

Tim Ramsdale, CEO of Agile Analog, said “This award serves as further endorsement of our technology and will lead to increased growth in the UK’s technology sector. The products we will develop with the Innovate UK grant will provide more flexibility and reduced time to market for customers in the automotive, IoT, AI and security markets.”

Mike Hulse, CTO of Agile Analog, said: “The Innovate UK grant will enable us to expedite our technology development and introduce new, more complex Analog IP to the market. Our customisable IP is built to a higher quality and is available on any semiconductor process, enabling the acceleration of innovation across the industry.”
