Open-Silicon semiconductor solutions

Posted by Kevin Sadria – April 5, 2014

Open-Silicon provides leading edge semiconductor solutions to get customer’s products to market. These solutions include traditional ASIC design, derivative and platform SoCs, hardware and software design services, and production handoffs where Open-Silicon provides manufacturing operations.

In addition to a broad menu of in-house engineering capabilities, Open-Silicon also utilizes the best-in-class engineering capabilities of partners like Synopsys, Cadence, S3, TSMC, ASE, and Wipro.

By combining the specific expertise necessary for each design with the most appropriate open-market technologies, and managing the process through a single point of organization and ownership, Open-Silicon has raised collaborative engineering to a new level.Since its founding in 2003, the company has focused on raising the bar on SoC execution, measuring the quality of engineering work and the ability to hit customer schedules and reporting that to the board of directors at every board meeting.

Also, the company has invested in technology, from the 2007 acquisition of Zenasis Technology, a leader in the processor performance space, to the 2009 acquisition of Silicon Logic Engineering, a leader in networking and computer system architecture, to the in-house developments of scan shift frequency scaling (TestMAX) and back biasing (VariMAX).
