SCALINX

France

SCALINX is a fabless semiconductor company headquartered in Paris with a solid experience in design of Signal Conversion ASICs for Test & Measurement, Defense & Aerospace and Communications applications.
We help our customers to reduce the cost and shorten the development time with our Smart Conversion Platform based on proprietary SCCORETMtechnology (Smart Conversion CORE). The SCCORETM technology is incorporating one to four-channel CT ΔΣ AD signal converter, 10 – 16 bit resolution, upto 5 GSPS sampling speed and analog bandwidth from 5 MHz to 600 MHz.

 

The SCCORETM technology enables alias-free data conversion solutions where signal filtering and resolution trade-offs are carried out in programmable digital circuitry. The flexibility and programmability ingredients of the SCCORETM technology combined with our Signal Conversion IP blocks are key for complex ASIC projects. The  ASIC developments are supported by our two design centers, Paris and Caen respectively.

New concept feasibility

For OEMs and semiconductor companies who need to reinvent their digitizing systems, we realize detailed technical and economic studies to find the best combination of process, package and circuit architectures meeting both the technical and cost requirements.

 

We provide a complete development schedule and the associated cost to respect the time-to-market of your end product.

ASIC design and supply

SCALINX provides ASIC design service, from the concept pre-study to the mass production, including:

 

Drafting of the specifications:
• Design, simulation and verification
• Packaging
• Prototyping
• Automated test
• Qualification
• Testing reports and data sheets
• Supply chain management

 

After a first set of discussions to deeply understand your needs, we give you a detailed working plan of the R&D program with a defined starting point and deliverables. The cost of the project is mutually decided up-front and the promised deliverables are executed.

IP design service

SCALINX provides custom IP design service. After a first set of discussions to deeply understand your needs, we give you a detailed working plan of the R&D program with a defined starting point and deliverables. The cost of the project is mutually decided up-front and the promised deliverables are executed.
In order to accelerate your ASIC or IC development while reducing failure risks, we offer off-the-shelf silicon proven Analog and Mixed-Signal IPs.
These IPs are easily portable onto a wide range of BiCMOS and CMOS processes with nodes ranging from 0.35µm down to 20nm. Furthermore, each of these IPs may be customized to your specific need. Our service model includes:
– Single-use, multi-use, one-time buy-off licensing models for our IP-cores
– Customization or porting of IP-cores to your target technology
