Over 100 successful ASIC projects have been developed by DELTA’s professional design team and have been deployed in systems and products worldwide. Utilizing best-in-class tools and our veteran team in Europe, we guarantee faster time-to market of smaller, more robust, more profitable ASIC products.

 

With several decades of combined experience in the international ASIC industry, DELTA provides unmatched technical excellence and expertise. Our teams in Denmark and the UK have more than 500 man years of ASIC design and production know-how. We apply this wealth of experience carefully throughout projects, to ensure clients of right-first-time results.

RFID solutions

DELTA-Chip-for-payment

We offer the spectrum of services to support RFID applications, including mixed-signal IC design and a library of proven circuitry. Recently, DELTA has developed a semi-costume RFID sensory tag conforming to ISO 14443 and ISO 15693. We support this with complete silicon production, wafer/component testing and packaging capabilities – including individual customisation of tags – providing an efficient one-stop solution for RFID projects.

 

Opto Chip

An opto-based microchip implemented in standard CMOS technology has made it possible for DELTA to deliver a new type of chip which can be used within many industrial areas that normally require a pair of eyes or detection of luminance.

We have worked with this technology for more than 10 years and optics and ASIC engineers have worked together on development projects for many years. We believe that there is a great future in combining optic-physics and ASIC technologies. This has resulted in several new ideas of cost optimisation.

 

Toll Road Chip

The ASICs DELTA has developed for customers support the GSS standard v.3.2 and consist of an analog part including an analog receiver frontend and a digital baseband controller. It operates in two modes: standby and active.

 

Sensors

DELTA Microelectronics has provided semiconductor services to the sensor market for more than a decade. Our IC design and production team is aware of all the requirements related to sensor products and is therefore able to reduce the risk involved in such an IC product dramatically.

 

 

Test and Packaging

Testing

DELTA has over 30 years of extensive experience in semiconductor testing and provides all testing services required for ICs – from wafer test, through qualification testing, and up to the final production test of packaged devices.
DELTA’s ASIC Test Centre was founded by industry pioneers in testing technology. The company’s portfolio speaks to the experience of our team and our deep understanding of ASIC testing technology. Our team has demonstrated over 500 complete, fully functional and optimised test solutions since 1976.

 

Packaging

packaging green chip

DELTA offers a broad range of standard and innovative, top-quality packaging services to meet the diverse requirements of customers, such as electrical performance, heat dissipation, cost, and aggressive time-to-market.

Our packaging team can provide expert guidance for package characterisation and selection, assist with package design logistics and documentation, perform failure analysis to identify packaging-related yield issues, and drive post-packaging, final product qualification testing.

Qualification and Failure Analysis

Qualification

DELTA offer comprehensive qualification services including:

  • Electrical tests, e.g. ESD and latch-up
  • EMC tests
  • Mechanical tests
  • Environmental tests
  • Combined mechanical and environmental tests
  • Preconditioning (e.g. JESD22-A113)
  • Workmanship evaluation covering  External visual inspection | Physical dimensions | X-ray | Inspection Seal testing (for hermetic components) | Solderability test | Resistance to soldering heat | Marking permanency | Lead  integrity

Failure Analysis

DELTA operates its own in-house microelectronics failure analysis department.

We have  invested in specialized equipment –  from mechanical access techniques to X-ray and scanning electron microscope examination.
