Tessolve delivers ASIC design services including advanced process nodes with a strong eco-system relationship with EDA, IP and foundries. Tessolve’s post silicon solution takes silicon from the foundry all the way to high volume manufacturing. Our front end design strengths integrated with the knowledge from the backend flow, allows Tessolve to catch design flaws ahead in the cycle, thus reducing expensive re-design costs, and risks.


Tessolve allows customers to leverage high end engineering in a cost optimized model by being able to scale teams to meet exact customer needs. Our solution involves new product introductions as well as optimization of existing products, which includes design PPA optimization, test time reduction, yield optimization, system level design and test and many more.


Tessolve partners with customers to make great ideas into great products.
