4 weeks: discrete prototype demo
Our customer DEC develops and produces Dynamic Sound technology products which can typically be used as stand-alone hearing protection or embedded in headphone systems, hearing aids and hearables. The IC we designed for DEC was an example of an integration project for SME and it covers most aspects of a SystematIC turnkey solution. Our contribution extends from system study to implementation, manufacturability and testability for ears, from zeroing in the IC process to IC design and layout and the production preparation.
20 weeks: prototype IC
The customer has a leading international position in industrial X-ray crystallography systems. In one of these products a multi-channel HV passive X-ray sensor is applied for material analysis and an accurate matched channel readout and signal processing ASIC is required. SystematIC proposed an architecture of ultra-low noise front ends that are noise optimized to the sensor element and applied in a matched channel configuration. The digital electronics where designed as special CMOS CML logic to obtain low crosstalk.
12 weeks: prototype to factory
We were handed the responsibility of a current sensor IC that monitors charge and discharge currents of a battery in a mobile phone and will remain insensitive to the variations of the supply voltage. We took charge of the entire design trajectory along with evaluation and redesign that was needed to make the final product a notch better than competition.
4 weeks: architecture proposal
In this project we developed an analog front-end architecture for a given capacitive MEMS pressure sensor. The front end must accurately measure the pressure in a tire and be robust against leakage, parasitics and noise. The SystematIC methodology was applied. First off, the sensor was electronically modelled to determine an optimal excitation and read out architecture. Next, during the detailed design phase the front-end was designed and layouted for a modern automotive IC application, including safety and test features.
3 months: custom ASIC tapout
SystematIC has designed a family of products which combines Ambient Light Sensor (ALS) and Infra-red Proximity Detection Sensor (PS) in a single SoC. The ambient light sensor matches the response of the human eye. The infra red proximity sensor measures the distance to an object. Our client is a leading global organization providing components to mobile phone manufacturing companies.
8 weeks: design start to prototype silicon
Our customers is the Isolation Products Division of a semiconductor leader, who has a strong portfolio based on optical isolation techniques. Application of this fully integrated single chip magnetic sensor opened a new line of magnetic isolation products. Based on our reference high speed magnetic design in 2 months’ time a 180nm CMOS prototype was shipped.
We deliver the analog and mixed-signal circuit designs needed to develop an IC with competitive specifications and unique functionalities. We provide turn-key solutions to customers needing us to go from product idea to development and IC production.
CUSTOM IC DESIGN
SystematIC, as its name aptly suggests, draws its strength from a thorough systematic development methodology and a profound knowledge base which it applies in practical implementation of every analog and mixed-signal ASIC it develops. Thanks to the ‘SystematIC’ methodologies, a fully functional, on-spec silicon is attainable with minimum number of design iterations and significantly reduced overall development time.
ASIC TURNKEY SOLUTIONS
In addition to the circuit and product development and validation of that on silicon, SystematIC provides full supply chain management of customer specific IC products. Production operations are subcontracted to reliable partners, while SystematIC holds the unique responsibility of the entire supply chain, from order to delivery on time at the customers’ preferred manufacturing site.
