Phylinks - (circa 2006)

Phylinks, Inc. provides a portfolio of IP Cores for the design of physical layer (PHY) high speed serial interfaces. Phylinks cores can be implemented in a variety of chip designs for use in advanced PCs, PC peripherals, servers, and 3G communications devices. Phylinks was founded in December 2005 by Antony Sou and Philip Hodgett – two experienced mixed-signal designers with over 40 years of combined experience. In 2006, Nabil Takla, a silicon valley entrepreneur who is also the CEO of Innovative Semiconductors, Inc., invested in Phylinks and joined the management team as CEO and Chairman of the Board. Phylinks has offices in Manchester UK, and San Francisco, California. For more information, visit
