Weebit Nano Logo
We were extremely pleased with IC’Alps’ work on our demo chip for SkyWater’s 130nm process. The IC’Alps team is highly skilled with all aspects of physical implementation, from RTL-to-GDS implementation to tape-out. They met schedule and quality targets, and the chip is fully functional.

Valid - Trust Powerhouse
IC'Alps conducted a feasibility study for an in-house design of Valid’s SIM cards. The guidance from IC'Alps' teams allowed us to study this alternative to our off-the-shelf suppliers with full confidence. Diving in the analysis of the cost structure and the chip side, we now have a better understanding of the ASIC solution at-hand.

A-la-carte partnerships

From our design centers in Grenoble and Toulouse, using our infrastructure and EDA licenses, we can handle any part of an IC design process, the choice is yours.

Possible IC design cooperation includes:

  • Circuit architecture/partitioning definition and analysis
  • Performance assessment of ASIC libraries and IP in various technologies
  • Digital partition from specification to layout (GDSII)
  • Analog schematics and layout activity
  • RTL Design and Verification
  • Mixed-signal IC verification
  • Silicon measurements and simulations results
  • FPGA to ASIC migration
  • RTL2GDSII at partition level, at top level
  • Consultancy of expertise
  • Functional Safety Engineering Analysis support
  • Integrate DFM & DFT standards to reach highest level of Quality
  • Boards from chip-level to application level test (Evaluation, EMC, Pin FMEA, Debug , and Validation)
  • Design For Test and Test Hardware guidance for Test Cost Reduction
  • Product and application supports ( System demonstration, application notes and documentations)

Our IP strategy gives your design a head-start

To provide our customers with differentiated IC architectures and a quick turnaround time to market we generally combine in-house analog and digital blocks, and some third party IPs in the areas of MCU, high speed SERDES, standardized communication interfaces, etc.

The benefits of this approach are:

  • Time saving through capitalization of our IP library and re-use of standard blocks
  • Lower cost compared to full in-house design
  • Reduced risk with silicon proven subsystems
  • Best possible performance across a variety of technologies
Layout ASIC analog

A proven design methodology

From specification to silicon, our team has developed robust and trusted design flows to build flawless analog, mixed-signal or digital ASICs from beginning to end.

Our design flows are certified according to ISO 9001:2016, ISO 13485:2016, EN 9100:2018, Common Criteria and IATF-16949 ready.
