Benefits Over Discrete Design

Differentiated Solutions – differentiate your product from the competition through integration

Optimized Performance – meet your performance requirements without having to make any trade-offs

Smallest Size – achieve up to 75% reduction in die size through integration

IP Protection – integrate your proprietary IP into silicon making it secure

Designed to Industry Standards – whatever standards you need to meet, can be achieved as part of the design & manufacturing process

Function Safety – ASICs designed to ISO 26262

Improved Reliability – reducing your bill of materials through integration means less components to place and thus improved reliability

Security of Supply – ownership of the design gives better security of supply

Complex Application Specific ICs (ASICs) Secure your IP & Improve Performance

Complex specific systems in industrial and automation technology often require tailor-made semiconductor solutions. The additional implementation of modern processor cores and the use of varying memory blocks, sensors and I/O generate entire systems-on-chip (SoC). We give our customers a decisive and competitive advantage by providing bespoke, high quality, high-performance ASIC design without compromising on cost and time-to-market. Our proven design, development, and operations flow has successfully delivered time and again high volume ASICs to the most demanding customers in the world.

Our ASIC products operate in the most challenging markets requiring the highest quality standards. Renesas (former Dialog) has been developing and supplying ASICs for over two decades. We take into consideration throughout the design and production process all necessary standards for certifications required for our customer and their market.

We work closely with our customers from concept through to supply to ensure we deliver on time, every time. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Blending Analog and Digital

We have a large library of silicon proven IP available for use in our ASICs and design expertise focused on combining analog circuits with complex digital processors. We’ve been doing this successfully for decades, so you can be confident that your entire system will be optimized.

"Security First" Design Philosophy

While security is a growing concern, it’s often considered too late in the design process. Our Security First philosophy means we design in security at the very start.
