Everything from one provider
Our cooperation models cover almost the whole range regarding the subject field ASICs. With your cooperation we can deduce and develop the exact specifications that are needed for the goal achievement in your individual use case. We carry out cost analyses – depending on specifications and quantity – to choose the suitable goal technology for your ASIC. For this purpose we can rely on a broad spectrum of experience in various technology nodes from different providers. If a completed specification is available, we can quickly convert it into silicon. Together with our experienced employees from the fields of analog technology, digital design and mixed-signal electronics, we can implement your wishes. In this development phase we work with the latest customary methods and software tools in the areas of design and verification.
Our test development department ensures an excellent testability of the functional chip parameters from the start and optimizes the circuit accordingly. This way, we can keep the machine run time for wafer and component tests at a low level to allow for competitive prices in your target market. These tests are carried out at Fraunhofer IMS in our in-house test laboratory. During this process, we benefit from our experiences from series testing in various other projects. For this, we work with modern test systems for wafer and component tests as well.
We also offer reliability tests/qualifications of ASICs. This includes tests like latch-up, ESD, high temperature bearing tests (HTS) and high temperature load tests (HTOL). The results and our assessments are presented to you in an extensive report.
Thus, everything regarding the ASICs is available at Fraunhofer IMS.
