Designs for the medical industry
DELTA Microelectronics has provided semiconductor services to the medical market for more than a decade.
Our IC design and production team is aware of all the requirements related to medical products and is therefore able to reduce the risk involved in such an IC product dramatically.
In recent years, DELTA has developed many ICs in the area of RFID and NFC, and our technologies are fully compliant with the medical market.
The DELTA team, located in Denmark and the UK, provides the complete mix of design and production services needed to successfully bring your new or existing products into an ASIC technology and therefore realise decreased cost combined with increased performance and quality.
Our flexible business model enables us to support you in all phases of ASIC design, production, test and supply chain.
An Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) incorporates a large amount of functions into a small custom-made IC.
In today’s competitive markets, ASICs provide many benefits such as lower production price, low power and smaller size to fit your requirements perfectly.
It is an intelligent packaging that reminds you to take a pill, that stores your feedback, that tells your doctor or pharmacy that you are running out.
Using an RFID ASIC, Cypak and DELTA have created a disposable paperboard computer that can collect and process data over the Internet.
The possibilities of applying this technology are endless, but it is a particular breakthrough in the pharmaceutical industry where accurate source data is vital for the evaluation of drug efficacy and safety.
At the heart of Cypak’s technology is a small chip, designed specifically for Cypak and produced by DELTA. DELTA has used its mixed signal ASIC design experience to design an ISO15693/14443 standard RFID interface integrated into the Cypak ASIC.
Getting the ASIC from design to production has involved a close cooperation between Cypak and DELTA:
“As we are now ramping up into volume shipments, we need a partner we can work successfully with from the specification stage to running volume deliveries, and DELTA has proven to be the perfect choice.” says Lennart Hane, Cypak.
“There are always challenges in a project like this, so an open dialogue is vital to solve the issues that come up. DELTA has the right attitude and organisation in place. We are both nordic companies, so we understand each other and we can discuss any difficulties openly to find a solution together.”
