Find the right ASIC Supply Chain Service provider for your project

February 05, 2018, anysilicon

 How many ASIC supply chain providers are typically included in a shortlist when launching a project?

We’d argue that too few.

 

There are over 100 ASIC supply chain providers worldwide that provide a range of services in different domains– ASIC supply chain for low volume, high volume, automotive, industrial, IoT, consumer, mobile, communication and more.

 

With the large vendors it’s a no brainer. But what about locating a smaller, specialized ASIC supply chain company with unique expertise that match your needs?

 

In other instances, enlarging the pool of vendors in your shortlist will increase competition and lower your costs. For projects with ‘conventional digital ASIC supply chain services, more vendor candidates in the shortlist may mean a more economical final price.

 

Another issue is that for fabless companies with relatively small projects it is sometimes a challenge to get the attention of the larger ASIC supply chain providers, who’s focus is primarily on larger projects. The more attractive quotes, in some cases, can arrive from the lesser-known shops.

 

Looking at this business engagement from the other side of the coin –  for a small ASIC supply chain provider, it is typically difficult to pull together the marketing resources needed to establish name recognition and online presence. Show me a single ASIC supply chain provider that would not be glad to enhance the pool of qualified leads.

 

Our ASIC supply chain directory is designed to resolve some of these issues and bridge vendors and buyers. Instead of spending time on Google searches, the directory enables quickly finding vendors that match specific needs, using pre-built categories, and free-search keywords. For vendors we offer the opportunity to expand their market reach and expose their key capabilities.
