Custom Integrated circuit layout

ASIC Engineering Company specializes in analog & mixed mode, CMOS & BICMOS custom ICs. We have extensive experience in custom low noise, low voltage, and low power, mixed mode ICs.

Digital ASICs are, in general, straightforward to design. Their behavior can largely be predicted by circuit simulation, and layout effects are of secondary importance. They can be put together quickly with existing pre-designed cells from the ASICE library, which include most common cells from 0.25 µm through 2 µm technologies.

Analog and mixed mode (contains both analog and digital circuits) ASICs however, are not as straight forward to design, and it's in this area that the expertise at ASICE can be invaluable. An intimate knowledge of process and layout effects is of primary importance to a successful design. ASICE has years of experience in what it takes to insure that your ASIC works as designed.

Low cost, fast turn around prototyping services

A primary service provided by ASIC Engineering Company is low cost linear and mixed-mode integrated circuit prototyping. ASICE has extensive experience with MOSIS VLSI Fabrication Service.  The MOSIS service allows manufacturers to develop IC based product prototypes at a fraction of the fabrication cost by sharing a lot with other manufacturers instead of paying for a dedicated lot at a commercial IC foundry.

Flexible approaches to finished ICs available

ASIC Engineering Company offers various paths to your finished custom IC, from full turnkey to just minor design tweaks and fabrication submittal. ASICE can also start with pre-existing specifications, schematics, or even layouts that a customer wants ASICE to insure that their prototype ASIC will work as desired. Or, if you have an existing discrete design, ASICE can make you more competitive in today's market with custom ASICs. ASICE prototypes are surprisingly affordable. There are very few circuits that you may use that would not benefit from being converted into a custom ASIC, especially if you use many of them.

Full turn key ASICs
    ASICE full turnkey solution:

  • Start with just an idea of yours.
  • Develop it into a chip specification and circuit requirements.
  • Design a circuit schematic that will meet the requirements.
  • Fully simulate the circuit using the latest process parameters for the chosen foundry.
  • Layout the integrated circuit.
  • Verify that the layout exactly matches the circuit schematic.
  • Submit the layout to the foundry for a prototype run.
  • Wirebond samples into packages for testing.
  • Deliver packaged parts to customer for evaluation.
  • After successful customer evaluation, a full lot of parts can then be started.

Complete state-of-the-art design simulation

Circuits are fully simulated using state-of-the-art models and the latest process parameters for the chosen foundry.  As layout progresses, parasitic capacitances are extracted from layout and circuit schematic is back annotated and re-simulated.  Great care is taken to insure that finished ASICs work as intended.

Design Verification

ASICE has years of experience in designing ICs that successfully do what they were intended to do, and has perfected a series of checks that are now an integral part of the design process. See design flow for a list of steps involved.
