Your design can achieve a 2x improvement in time-to-market by using Triad’s patented Agile IC™ technology. You have great ideas. We manage the entire process of getting your idea into silicon and volume production. ISO Certified, ITAR Certified, Automotive Certified, Medical Certified. Global semiconductor supply chain with multiple foundries, package and test solutions. We also provide you with global distribution options to support a design and manufacturing solution optimized for your application.


Turnkey ASIC Design and Manufacture

You may or may not have custom IC development experience. What you have is a great idea and domain expertise. Our expertise is integrated circuit design and manufacturing.


Our mission is getting your idea designed and manufactured as your own custom ASIC fast and cost effectively.


We provide a full turn-key ASIC solution from idea to volume production.


We serve as your virtual IC design team systematically refining your idea through the various stages of integrated circuit realization:


Architecture / Design / Verification

  • Architecture
  • Specification Development
  • Analog & Mixed-Signal (AMS) Design
  • AMS Simulation
  • AMS Synthesis, Floor planning, Layout
  • Post Layout Extraction (PEX) Simulation & Verification
  • Prototype Fabrication, Prototype Packaging
  • Prototype Evaluation



Since 2002, we have been qualifying custom ICs for a wide variety of markets and characterization requirements. Our characterization experience, certification and know-how are applied your application’s unique requirements. We have practical knowledge of characterization and quality flows that support Commercial, Functional Safety, Intrinsic Safety, Defense, Medical FDA Class (I, II, III), Automotive, Aerospace, and Radiation-Hardened requirements.


Semiconductor Manufacturing Supply-Chain Management

Our supply-chain is certified to the same rigorous standards as our characterization process. We handle the development of production test hardware and software. We manage the pre-production semiconductor supply-chain to ramp your IC through Engineering Samples, Pre-Production, and Production-Release. We have an extensive network of qualified IC foundries, package houses, and production test providers that we will optimize for your application. We manage the complete manufacturing process and provide you with packaged tested parts throughout the life of your product.


You have great circuit ideas. We help you realize them quickly and economically as your own custom ASIC, ASSP or CSSP (contact us at to learn more).
