Over 40 years in a broad range of applications
The most important factor in choosing a partner for an ASIC/SoC project is experience.
The cost and risk associated with developing custom silicon can be very high, and experience is the best tool at your disposal to ensure a first-time-right outcome.
DELTA has been designing ASICs since 1984, and has built one of the most experienced design teams available in Europe to support IC design projects.
A wide range of technologies
Our multi-disciplinary team includes many designers with more than a decade in the field, and as you would expect, DELTA has worked with a very wide range of technologies including:
- Digital design
- Mixed signal designs
- DFT (design for testability) techniques
- DSP and software-intensive architectures
- Analog and radio frequency design (ultra low power)
Involve us in the early stages
This experience is available to assist you at any point during an ASIC design project. However, involving us at the very outset can be particularly valuable.
Our know-how means that we can often help you make important architectural and system partitioning decisions that can yield significant gains not only in terms of product performance and flexibility, but affecting the cost, lifetime and manufacturability of the device itself.
A part of our application range
The range of application areas we have worked on is very broad. However, here are a few of our recent projects where we have either assisted, or worked throughout the entire ASIC process:
- Wireless IC for payment systems
- Inverse FFT filter for a GPS system
- Ultra low power optical sensor interface and actuator
- Fingerprint sensor interface and signal processing system
- Medical sensor interface, datalogger and short-range wireless link
- Ultra-low-power single-chip solution for an RFID tag (case study “Cypak”, download here)
Digital, analog and mixed signal ICs
During that time we have worked with most silicon semiconductor technologies – from plain CMOS to exotic processes – to produce digital, analog and mixed signal IC solutions.
We are an almost unique resource in Europe, supplying the spectrum of microelectronics services from front end design to inventory management of finished devices.
Specific services or a complete solution
A broad network of trusted partners complements our own extensive design, test and logistics resources.
So you can rely on DELTA to provide precisely the service mix you need, whether it’s a specific service to support your own IC project, or a complete turnkey ASIC solution.
DELTA’s services free you to focus on your core skills. We will take complete responsibility for providing and managing part or all of the complex supply chain involved in IC production.
