Company

As an independent medium-sized manufacturer, our focus is on chip design and the production of customer- or application-specific semiconductor circuits. The comprehensive know-how in the field of modern mixed-signal ASICs and ASSPs results from a large number of successfully implemented customer projects. High quality standards, delivery reliability and zero error policy, 100% final test in our own test department are appreciated by our customers. We produce a wide range of mixed-signal opto-, hall-, etc. Sensor ICs, BUS interface circuits, various controller ASICs for motor controls in cars or consumer goods, or driver modules for LED or LC displays for industrial automation, the automotive industry, consumer goods and medical electronics.

Profile

Profile

Beginning with a technical specification over the complete IC development, sample production, qualification and documentation up to mass production of the ASICs or ASSPs, tested in our own test department, we offer the complete service of a modern Fabless Semiconductor Company, Foundry-independent and are therefore able to provide the best technically and economically favorable solution.

  • Turn-key circuit design, sample production, evaluation and qualification for mass production of a custom specific mixed-signal ASIC or pure analog but also complex digital integrated circuits – ASICs and standard ICs
  • Test and delivery of bulk production IC volumes to our customers regarding flexible and defined quality and logistic demands with backend services as tape & reel, dry packing or long time storage of parts
  • complete supply chain management for IC production
  • COT support (customers own tooling) for semiconductor technologies of our foundry partner EPISIL
