ASIC North, Inc. provides VLSI circuit design services to the Semiconductor industry. We work with Fab and Fabless Semiconductor companies at various levels, including execution of entire projects, complementing customers’ existing design teams, and providing engineering staff as needed. In addition, ASIC North develops and provides intellectual property, such as data converters, power management, and RFID subsystems, to our customers. The majority of our work is done with CMOS and SOI technologies from 180nm down to 7 nm. ASIC North has Design Centers in Burlington, VT, Raleigh, NC and Phoenix, AZ.
Since our doors first opened for business, asicNorth has been developing ASIC products in the most advances technology nodes and using the “best-in-class’ industry standard EDA tools. The asicNorth ASIC Design team consisting of over 30 members (many with advanced degrees) averaging over 25 years of industry experience.
Today asicNorth engineers are developing chips and subsystems using 14nm FinFet technologies and each day show our Customers the value of hiring one of the premier ASIC design organization in US.
Successful ASIC design execution requires rigorous adherence to a thoroughly validated and proven design flow to ensure design performance objectives are achieved. At asicNorth our experience in ASIC design has perfected the follow design flow:
Specializing in Analog / Mixes Signal circuit, design, the asicNorth Analog Circuit Design team consisting of over 35 members (most with advance degrees) and armed with industry standard EDA tooling, we “Bring Analog / Mixed Signal to ASIC Design”.
The asicNorth Analog Circuit Design team has over 21 year of industry experience with expertise in a wide variety of process technology, fabs and focus areas. Below is list of the main areas our designers work in:
High Speed Serial Links
Analog to Digital Converters
RFIC Circuit and System Design Experience
Mobile Communication Systems:
Embedded Connectivity Systems:
Fabless Semiconductor Experience Across Many Technologies.
Block Level IP up to and through RF SOC integration experience.
The asicNorth team of multi-disciplined engineers can take a complex embedded system and transform it into a highly integrated single chip solution which can improve almost every aspect of the product’s performance metrics.
The asicNorth designer use best practices when developing turnkey ASIC solutions for our customers. Quality, Communication, and Functional Integrity are our first priority as we craft the next generation of their products.
The following is an example of the approached used by asicNorth for our turnkey design projects:
