The patent application seeks to protect an advanced technology to automatically generate reusable microchip’s layout blocks IPs
SAN DIEGO, May 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GBT Technologies Inc. ( OTC PINK: GTCH ) (“GBT” or the “Company”), received a notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office with respect to its application covering the automatic generation of reusable integrated circuits (ICs) layout blocks. The patent application seeks to protect a technology to automatically produce IC layout blocks according to the circuit’s highest level and functional description. It is the intent to use this technology as a black-box to be inserted within an existing or future IC projects, as a plug-and-play unit, with the goal of enabling major time saving by avoiding its entire re-design process. The patent application was filed on September 27, 2022 and received an application ID 17953378.
Using reusable IPs is an efficient method to quickly design an SoC (System on Chip). A System on a Chip is an integrated circuit that includes sub-blocks (units) components onto it. It is typically consistent of core blocks, each performs its own task, for example a USB unit, central processing unit (CPU), input/output ports and more. Modern SoCs also may include AI and other complex blocks to enable advanced capabilities. Using reusable, pre-designed IP cores/blocks is becoming more and more crucial with the goal of minimizing the entire IC’s design time, particularly for analog, and mixed designs. The patent describes a system and to automatically generate integrated circuits layout IP blocks, reading a defined process design rules, constraints and the microchip’s specifications. The main aim of the patent is reducing IC project’s design and costs, as well as the silicon space occupied by large systems. GBT plans to continue its R&D efforts in this area to achieve further advancements, enabling design houses efficient, fast microchip’s design, significantly reducing their time-to-market factor. The patent is expected to be granted within the next upcoming months.
“A semiconductor intellectual property (IP) is a reusable logic or layout unit design that is developed with the intent of licensing to multiple vendors or using internally, for using as building blocks in different chip designs. The goal of reusing IP blocks is to shorten microchip’s projects design time. Instead of re-designing the on-chip units that are in charge of known features, we simply plug-and-play readymade ones. An example of an IP block is a USB port, HDMI, graphic processing unit, wireless unit and more. Our patent application describes a technology that can read any circuit’s specifications, the process rules and constraints and automatically generate the IC’s layout block with a click of a button. An automatic generation of IP layout blocks, that can be reused unlimited times across SOC designs, should enable an enormous advantage for fabless IC design firms. Ultimately, the goal of the technology will be to majorly reduce an IC’s project’s time-to-market, design efforts and cost, which we believe may create a whole world of possibilities in the electronics arena. We plan to continue our research in this area, developing further cutting-edge concepts, to enable the design and manufacture of larger and more advanced microchips, to accommodate our world’s fast pace technological innovations,” stated Danny Rittman, the Company’s CTO.
There is no guarantee that the Company will be successful in researching, developing or implementing this system. In order to successfully implement this concept, the Company will need to raise adequate capital to support its research and, if successfully researched, developed and granted regulatory approval, the Company would need to enter into a strategic relationship with a third party that has experience in manufacturing, selling and distributing this product. There is no guarantee that the Company will be successful in any or all of these critical steps.
GBT Technologies, Inc.
