We work with Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), helping our customers make their ASICs production-ready. Customers can choose to have more control by utilizing our Easy-COT service or opt for the ASIC services team to provide Full Turn Key (FTK) management of your project. We also support our customers with our technology targeting service to guide you in selecting the right technology for your design.

In addition, we collect the designs of customers – universities or private companies – on a single mask set to have them manufactured on a small volume of wafers. These multi-project wafer (MPW) runs allow sharing the expensive mask costs. Typically, we handle around 550 designs per year for MPW runs through the ASIC services team.
