Pragmatic is a world leader in semiconductor innovation, revolutionising semiconductor fabrication with ultra-low-cost, flexible integrated circuit (FlexIC) technology that makes it quick and easy to embed intelligence almost anywhere. Our revolutionary technology uses thin-film semiconductors to create flexible integrated circuits that are thinner than a human hair, and are significantly cheaper and faster to produce than silicon chips. With rapid cycle times that substantially accelerate time to market, our foundry provides high-volume fabrication at a fraction of the cost of silicon, and with significantly lower environmental impact. Our vision is a world where everyone, everywhere will touch our technology throughout their everyday lives. We are a team of passionately innovative people designing and manufacturing products that solve a range of global problems encountered every day, with our core values truly embedded in all our business processes and decisions. Pragmatic is headquartered in Cambridge, UK, with our first fab operating in Sedgefield, and a second fab under construction at our new 15-acre Pragmatic Park site in Durham.
