We have expertise in ASIC, custom, mixed signal, RFIC and FPGA development for commercial,
industrial, military and rad-hard applications. Our team can develop an IC from specification
to tape-out and will support design entry points that meet your needs. Our capabilities
include: Verilog/VHDL coding, synthesis, floor planning, front-end design, back-end
design, timing analysis, power analysis, and verification.
We provide application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) development expertise including
HDL coding, schematic design, synthesis, physical design, timing analysis, power
analysis and foundry release. We engage with clients at a variety of entrance points;
system concept, specification, RTL netlist, gate-level or GDSII. Our ASIC design
methodology is based on commercially proven tools and flows and includes multiple
design reviews. Our on-shore, ITAR-compliant design team and foundry partners offer
options and trusted solutions from legacy 0.5 micron to leading-edge 28nm CMOS, BiCMOS,
and SOI process technologies.
Analog, Mixed Signal, RF ICs
Our mixed signal, high-speed, RF or full-custom integrated circuit design services
include specification development, circuit design and simulation, IP integration,
custom layout and verification. We have experience in a wide range of technology
that enables an optimized custom IC solution, such as CMOS, BiCMOS, SiGe, GaAs, and
SOI. Our custom IC development methodology includes planning for IC packaging, test,
and verification. Our package and test engineers are engaged during the design process
to plan for down-stream system integration before fabrication and they are also involved
with device characterization throughout the IC test and verification effort.
FPGAs are traditionally used for low volume applications or proto-types. Due to high
recurring price, large size, high power and questionable reliability for certain
applications, ASICs are often preferred. We develop FPGAs for production or as proof-of-concept
prototypes that will migrate to an ASIC for production delivery. We also provide
FPGA equivalent ASICs that maintain the product footprint while improving performance
and reducing recurring cost.
We provide hard and soft intellectual property (IP) for integrated circuits and rad-hard
libraries for rad-hard-by-design (RHBD) ASIC development. Our integrated circuit
IP includes memories (SRAM, ROM, nonvolatile), I/Os, communication links, ADC/DACs,
PLLs, and microcontrollers. Additional IP is available through our partners, giving
us limitless possibilities. Our radiation hardened libraries enable advanced rad-hard
ASIC development. We created a rad-hard 90nm SOI library and have similar libraries
planned for 45nm SOI and 32nm SOI commercial technology.
