AnySilicon is operating a truly unbiased semiconductor blog focused on ASIC design and manufacturing topics. We welcome individuals and companies to take part in our knowledge ecosystem and submit technical or marketing articles in the following areas:


  • IC design
  • IC verification
  • IP Cores
  • Wafer technology
  • Packaging/assembly
  • Production testing
  • Full turnkey services
  • Qualification
  • Failure analysis


Contributed content will receive credit in the form of the writer’s name, contact information and link to a web site.


We allow individual authors to add a Blogger title to their Linkedin profile with AnySilicon company name.


Target Audience

AnySilicon targets ASIC/IC engineers and managers, fabless companies, IDMs and individuals interested in learning more about semiconductors and the realization of ASICs.



We offer two broad content categories – technical and marketing/business.


  • Technical articles provide readers with a general overview or technical explanations of topics related to ASIC implementation, methods, and new technologies. For example: how would one select a probe card for production testing; what are the benefits of 3D packages; what is MIM cap and when should it be used? ASIC design tips? and so on. Other articles may help readers in various decision points, such as: selecting BGA or QFN, foundry A or B, 65nm or 40nm, multi-site testing vs single-site etc.


  • Marketing/Business oriented articles focus on the business side of the semiconductor industry. An article can provide, for example, a forecast or an analysis of trends in the semiconductor market;  insight into emerging business models, such as: ASIC vs. COT; observations regarding the impact of new trends, players, market events, etc.
