Minimizing ASIC production costs is the goal of every company. The problem is that this requires extensive knowledge. You must understand the technical intricacies and the financial implications of multiple activities like wafer production, packaging and QA activities such as electrical tests.
Generally, the more your company is involved in production activities, the lower your costs. However, taking full ownership over production is not always possible, nor financially wise. Which brings us to our next webinar in the SemiWiki Series:
Webinar: Choose the Right ASIC Manufacturing Model for Your Business
ASIC production is a part-science, part-art discipline which requires extensive knowledge. The many available options, which combine various 3rd party services and internal resources, require an understanding of the technical intricacies, the pros and cons, and the financial implications of each option. The more knowledge you have, the cheaper ASIC production can be for your company.
This webinar examines three common business models for hardware implementation including IC production and the financial impact of each. Using a real-life project case, it then identifies production volume break even points, distinguishing where one production model has an obvious financial benefit over another.
This webinar is in partnership with DELTA Microelectronics:
DELTA Microelectronics is a European company. We offer services ranging from design (front and back end), development of test solutions, production testing of components, wafer probing, failure analysis and logistics for the supply of components including purchasing of wafers and packaging. We allow the customer to get the most cost effective combination of services.
DELTA has been supporting microelectronics development since 1976, providing services to hundreds of successful integrated circuit projects for some of the world’s best-known OEMs/IDMs and fabless semiconductor suppliers. We are a business unit of DELTA Danish Electronics, Light & Acoustics that was established in 1941. DELTA Microelectronics is headquartered in Hørsholm, Denmark, and has an office in South Wales, UK.
Partners and in-house capabilities
A range of European and Far Eastern wafer and packaging partners enable DELTA to provide a full supply chain solution. DELTA has a large semiconductor test department where we can test wafers and components. Our test engineers ensure that the test hardware and software are customised to your chip. DELTA’s experienced ASIC design team is specialised in very low power chips, payment systems, RFID designs, sensor interfaces and optical chips.
ASIC Design Services
The lowest risk path to success.The advantages of ASICs and highly integrated system-on-chip solutions in terms of cost reduction and increase in performance can be , and we believe DELTA’s unique design-to-production flow offers you the lowest risk path to success. We start with an extremely rigorous specification process. During the design phase itself, we use our extensive library of proven circuit IP to speed up projects, and build detailed design review and verification steps into all our designs – at specification, net list, layout and sample stages.
ASIC manufacturing services
Our turnkey ASIC manufacturing services cover the complete cycle – from wafer procurement through packaging, assembly, test, qualification, supply chain management and failure analysis – or can handle a specific phase, based on your needs. We take pride in our high standards and total quality control that help our customers maximise yield and minimise risk of flawed components. With more than 30 years of supporting IC manufacturing, we have developed formal test procedures and quality management methodologies that assure our clients of the rigorous process their products receive. Our facilities are ISO 9001 certified for microelectronics design since 1999.
I hope to see you there!
