"NO CHALLENGE IS BIG ENOUGH FOR US"

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

You can proof that what you do is good or even 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 are key to a successful project. That is why we are fast. In an early stage we try to capture the key questions and solve these on high level.

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

THE SYSTEMATIC APPROACH

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

Our complete turn-key solution provides customers with the most efficient path from specification through to medium and high volume ASIC supply. Combining decades of experience we ensure high performance and high quality ASIC solutions are developed and brought to production for you.

For our turn-key product developments we support the full package of IC development services, phase 1 to 3, and continue with production, supply-chain and product support in phase 4. We can supply wafers, post-processed and/or tested wafers or assembled and tested ASICs, completely adapted to your production needs.

PREPARATION

Feasibility, product definition, development plan (steps, schedule, efforts, tools, costs)

Will the idea work?
What is the best system topology?
What is the most suitable technology?
What development plan can we support?

  • Investigate the idea with consideration of the laws of physics and limitations of integration technologies
  • Fundamental comparison of different implementations or architectures of the system function(s)
  • Address risks and uncertainties:
    • can a discrete (PCB/FPGA) prototype help to reduce these?
    • how do we model special or external components (sensors, actuators, transformers, etc.)
  • Consider optimization directions of the performance: The best compromise is based on balancing different aspects (power versus signal-to-noise, accuracy versus area, etc.).
  • Consider process requirements, based on functionality, performance and chip area/price and select appropriate IC technology
  • Model the system and simulate and confirm system behavior.
  • Complete IC definition, including architecture, specification, block division
  • Proposal for a SystematIC Design and Development and Production plan.

DEVELOPMENT

Design, simulation, layout, verification, tape-out, evaluation, design adjustments.

Account for production requirements like DfT, ESD, chip area, etc.

  • Project management to execute Design and Development plan
  • Block-level design, simulation, verification, layout, post-layout simulation
  • Top-level design and verification (incl. appropriate block-level modelling)
  • Top-level layout and verification
  • Peer reviewing and design reports
  • Tool selection and installation, including industry standard tools like Cadence and/or Mentor
  • Design for testability, support for (external) wafer test and final test engineering
  • Application-level verification (simulation, validation)
  • (Prototype) Evaluation plan and execution or support for that

TRANSFER TO PRODUCTION

Support data for production (gds2, testplan, etc.)

Connect to production partners

Application support

Preparation for production is an essential element in previous phases already. We take the full responsibility for the steps needed to cooperate with selected production partners and bring the ASIC to release for production.

  • Collection and transfer of relevant data to production facilities:
    • Physical data: gds2, bond-out, package, etc.
    • Data for testing: test operation (testbus), test limits, test plan, yield expectation
  • Production (Foundry) options and monitoring:
    • Mask options (MPW, SLM, MLM)
    • Process options (EEPROM, MIM caps, etc.)
    • PCM data
  • Test options (wafer test, final-test, both or none)
    • Yield optimization
    • Test-time optimization
  • Qualification support

PRODUCTION and SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

From order to delivery

Product support

After customer-approved release for production and product delivery agreement, SystematIC supports

  • Responsibility from production order to product delivery: order management and follow-up
  • Customer-specific delivery and quality agreements
  • Selected production partners are ISO 9001 certified
  • Periodical audits of the subcontractors
  • Production quality control
  • Returned parts investigation, Failure Analysis support and reporting
  • Application/Product support
  • Test cost and yield optimization

AC led driver custom ic design

Consumers, Integrated power
AC LED DRIVER IC

3 weeks: discrete prototype demonstration, 3 weeks: IC definition, process selection

Our customer produces a range of AC LED modules for lamp manufacturers. The products were originally built with discrete components, a different set for each module type. For performance enhancement and simplification of production steps and supply chain, the customer was looking for a custom ASIC solution. The customer was also expecting improved performance on TRIAC dimmer compatibility and a reduction in product costs. With a programmable high-voltage ASIC and only a few external components (rectifier, fuse and surge) all module types can be made. LED modules with such an ASIC are directly driven from the AC mains voltage, are low-cost and are very compact and reliable. An electronic solution was created that made the customer AC LED lamp compatible with TRIAC dimmers. A discrete prototype was built and demonstrated to the customer just a few weeks after the first contact. The discrete electronics where chosen such that they could be implemented in a HV IC process.
