Our expertise for medical ASIC design & supply

Ultra-low power

A key asset for any device operating on battery, whether it's wearable or implantable. It's also a major enabler of the digitalization of the medical devices. Thanks to our wealth of experience with advanced low power design techniques, we deliver state-of-the-art implementation for highly energy-efficient integrated circuit.

Physiological sensing

Sensor technologies are revolutionizing healthcare and medicine, for this reason and. since our foundation, we have acquired a specific know-how in interfacing sensors for the measurement of physiological parameters. Embedding in one single chip activity, heart rhythm, blood oxygenation, respiration rate and many more clinical signs monitoring together with wireless communication and embedded processing is now possible thanks to ASIC approach.

The smaller the better

As most of new medical devices target either wearable or implantable applications, the size of electronic is key to meet patient and professional expectations and needs. A custom integrated chip is always the most efficient way to save room by avoiding superfluous functions and components, thus reducing the bill of materials and adapting the shape of your device.

Patient data protection

With the digitalization of healthcare and the major use of connected devices in patient monitoring and therapy, there is a growing need for data protection to face the threat of cyber-attacks. IC’Alps is conscious of this requirement and our team has developed specific patented secure elements as cornerstones that can be integrated to any ASIC aiming at protecting patient data against alteration or disclosure from data acquisition to wireless transmission for remote AI processing in the cloud.
