Custom ASIC Design

Custom ASIC Design

SystematIC, as its name aptly suggests, draws its strength from a thorough systematic development methodology and a profound knowledge base which it applies to practical implementation of every analog and mixed signal ASIC it develops. Thanks to the ‘SystematIC’ methodologies, a fully functional, on-spec first silicon is attainable with minimum number of design iterations and significantly reduced overall development cost and time-to-market.

EAR PROTECTION CONTROL IC

CHALLENGE
DEC develops products to protect the human ear against high sound pressure. The system consists of an electronic circuit with a microphone input, a signal processing algorithm, a high-voltage driver and an actuator. The actuator mechanically closes the ear channel. Because the product is an in-ear application, miniaturization of the electronics is mandatory, and integration of the electronics is a requirement.

SOLUTION
The vision for the product was present in the form of a simple mathematical model. We converted this idea into a high-level system model. As a proof of concept, we designed discrete electronic circuits on a PCB and included the algorithm applying components that can also be used in an IC process. With the first hardware DEC verified electronics in real-time and enabled further improvement of the algorithm. An IC process was proposed considering commercial and technical requirements. An integration trajectory was started and solutions for the signal processing blocks the IC process were designed on transistor level. We then proceeded to support the actual prototype fabrication and assisted with the measurement and evaluation of the first silicon in order to realize a functional product best suited for the application and ready for mass production.

CHALLENGE
Our customer is a leading global organization providing components and technology solutions to electronics manufacturing companies around the world. The challenge was to design a current sensor IC that will monitor charge current from a battery in a mobile phone and will remain insensitive to the variations of the supply voltage. SystematIC conducted the entire design trajectory along with evaluation and redesign that was needed to make the final product a notch better than competition.

SOLUTION
The aim was to measure high-side current sensor irrespective of the supply voltage that ranged from 1.8 – 4.5 V. Sense current range was at 1 mA-1000 mA, using an external resistor of 10 mΩ. We developed an advanced floating measurement circuit which is insensitive to the common-mode level. The differential voltage to be measured is very small (micro- to milli volt range). Despite the uncertainties in specification the entire design trajectory was covered in very short time and resulted in a fully functional first silicon.

TIRE PRESSURE SENSOR

4 weeks: architecture proposal

The project was to develop an analog front-end architecture for a given capacitive MEMS pressure sensor. The front -end must accurately measure the pressure in a tire and be robust against leakage, parasitics and noise. The SystematIC methodology was applied. First off, the sensor was electronically modelled to determine an optimal excitation and read out architecture. Next, during the detailed design phase the front-end was designed and layouted for a modern automotive IC application, including safety and test features.

POINT-OF-LOAD POWER CONTROLLER

4 weeks: architecture and IC design proposal

The customer started a business line to produce controllers for industrial electronics. Target applications were Point-of-Load Power Modules, Ethernet Routers and Switches and Industrial Power Management. The customer’s approach was to offer a versatile IC to the market.The customers discovered market interest and received request for samples. Within a year SystematIC developed all accurate analog functions in a new IC process for this complex mixed signal chip and delivered an ASIC reference design and layout.

AC LED DRIVER IC

4 weeks: architecture proposal

The customer produced a range of AC LED lamps, built with discrete electronics, with limited set of external components. The lamps were directly driven from the AC Mains resulting in a compact and potentially low-cost construction. The customer was looking for a custom ASIC solution for further performance enhancement, simplification of the supply chain and cost reduction. A discrete prototype was build and demonstrated to the customer just after two weeks of first contact. The successful demonstration was followed by the development of ASIC and industrialization of the same.

X-RAY DETECTOR READOUT

20 weeks: prototype IC

The customer has a leading international position in industrial X-ray crystallography systems. In one of these products a multi-channel HV passive XRAY sensor is applied for material analysis and an accurately matched channel readout and signal processing ASIC is required. Digital switching should not affect the very low analog signal integrity. SystematIC proposed an architecture of ultra-low noise front ends that are noise optimized to the sensor element and applied in a matched channel configuration.

NO CHALLENGE IS BIG ENOUGH

At SystematIC we are fascinated about IC design. We are persons that want to know how things work and when we actually do we love the challenge of building something with it. And this is not based on just a lucky guess but we work in a structured way to get to a result that is optimal.

You can proof that what you do is very good and ultimate. It's all about capturing what you need within the limitations of physics and mathematics and use the tools that are available to actually make it. Understanding the possibilities and challenges of integrated circuit design as well as the customer requirements is key to a successful project. That is why we are fast. In an early stage we try to capture the key ingredients and solve them on high level.

That way we know it will work before we start and can provide our customers with the best value in both quality of design and in design time.
