  • Altium Designer, Protel, Altera Quartus, LTSpice, Klayout, and many other PC based Design Tools

Technologies

RADLogic is able to target a foundry of the customer’s choice or can suggest a suitable foundry based on application requirements.

We have experience with a wide range of technologies, from 55nm CMOS processes through to 0.6um BiCMOS processes. We are very familiar with 130nm and 180nm CMOS technologies, including processes with analog features such as high voltage devices, double poly, MIM and Metal finger capacitors, bipolar devices, native devices, triple well, LDMOS, DMOS, high valued resistors, EEPROM, OTP, FRAM, LCOS, optical devices, and more.

System Design

As well as performing IC design work, RADLogic’s staff also have the skills required to design board level and system level products.

We have expertise in designing Bluetooth-controlled equipment, which we see as a fundamental building block for the Internet of Things (IoT).

We have developed phone and tablet based applications for controlling and sensing from such equipment.

At the other end of the spectrum, RADLogic’s IDIoT™ technology provides a low cost solution to providing a machine readable ID to almost any object.
