PURELY ANALOG Innovating Technology

We are dedicated to the design of robust, precision solutions for the toughest analog and mixed signal challenges.

Experience is critical to timely execution.

Experience

With over 60 years combined experience in the design and management of mixed signal silicon designs, the team has the expertise to address the most demanding constraints.

Projects

We have been involved in developing over 65 precision mixed signal products worldwide at leading mixed signal semiconductor companies, which have generated close to 1 billion dollars in cumulative sales.

Intellectual Property

Our team are named inventors on almost 50 U.S. patents, with others currently in process. We have the expertise and experience to ensure confidence in our ability to deliver.

Service we provide:

Architecture and Specification Consultation

Whether the challenge is a full custom integrated circuit, or a block within a system ASIC design, the process begins with a consultation on the technical and financial constraints. Issues such as CAD infrastracture, IP arrangements and testing will form part of this discussion. The outcome of this phase is a technical specification and set of constraints.

Quotation

Once the specification is agreed, a quotation and timescale estimate will be supplied. The payment system would typically be structured as non-refundable engineering (NRE) with payment breakpoints as the project progresses.

Schematic Layout

The physical layout of the masks required to implement the schematics is absolutely critical in analog and mixed signal design. For optimum outcome, the layout would begin as the schematics progresses, so that parasitic elements can be incorporated into the simulations to give a more accurate projection of real-world performance.

Design Review

Once the schematic is complete, a significant milestone will be the design review at which both parties can critique the solution. Following this review, any follow-up actions are carried out, the schematic is finalized and the layout completed.

Documentation

Completed design documentation, final schematics, and layout files will be transmitted to the customer.

Evaluation

For stand-alone chip designs, or for system-level block which have incorporated a design-for-test (DFT) strategy, we can also provide measurement solutions to evaluate the new design once it has been manufactured.

Production packaging and test

Where required, we can provide packaging solutions with third-party providers. This is a very important step in analog and mixed signal circuits to ensure that robustness and precision is maintained. In addition, we can arrange production ATE test and wafer probe programs.

We are a team of experienced professionals.
