Encore Semi and Trusted Semi have announced a partnership designed to establish an engineering infrastructure to provide Concept to Production Part services for the aerospace and defense market, the company said.
Historically, aerospace and defense companies relied predominately on ASIC technology to support their semiconductor needs. With technology advancements in FPGA´s, all, or most of, these ASIC designs have been replaced by FPGA-based solutions. This move to FPGA-based solutions has left aerospace and defense companies without the expertise in the latest ASIC design methodologies, EDA tools, and advanced packaging technologies needed for state-of-the-art ASICs and custom microelectronics.
Encore Semi, Inc. has a long history in advanced IC design services (20 years) servicing a variety of Tier 1 customers via project based / turnkey support as well consulting and augmentation. Encore Semi´s strong technical management team come from industry (Intel, Maxlinear, Unisys and Cadence Design Services) with proven experience building and managing teams focused on advanced SOC design down to 7nm FinFET technology.
Trusted Semiconductor Solutions averages over 25 years of engineering experience in integrated circuit design, radiation hardening of microelectronics, and semiconductor manufacturing, with expertise in delivering high-reliability semiconductors and electronic products.
