Turnkey IC services, with high specialization in mixed signal audio and power management, is our area of expertise.
Our customers praise us not only for executing well on their specifications, but also for providing improvements and innovation, which further contribute to the final product uniqueness and differentiation. We don’t just work for you: we work with you as an extension to the customer organization, as your success is our success.
For volume production we rely on well established partnerships to guarantee steady and reliable mass production delivery. Our service portoflio can be further described by application or by service.
Matlab, Simulink, PSIM are our daily tools to ensure that the IC will meet its target specifications, generating the product datasheet if requested.
Analog & Digital Design
From schematic and verilog code to GDSII, we handle the complete IC development flow, using the most advanced CAD tools and design + verification methodologies.
Our digital design flow is by contruction ready to be prototyped on FPGA when applicable. All our audio DSP is by default prototyped on FPGAs.
Two fully equipped labs with multiple stations offering battery emulators, Audio Precisions systems, Laser micrometer acqusition systems, ESD and surge, thermal chambers, IC rework stations and much more.
From PCB to end product prototyping, evaluation kits, standard certification, reference design and application notes, our world class apps team can cover it all, with years of experience in supporting tier 1 customers and world class electronic shows such as CES and MWC.
Software & Algo
SW drivers, embedded uC code development or algorithm adaption to target DSPs are often as important as the IC itself. Our SW application and algorithm team has the mass production expertise to develop such code and algorithms, enabling them on multiple platforms and operating systems, including Unix, Android, Chrome OS and others.
ATE product development and support is also part of our service offering in the path to mass production, as well as HTOL, ESD, latchup and other reliability tests.
By application, we have resident experts that have brought to mass production silicon covering an extremely wide rance of applications.
