SENSOR INTERFACING

Sensors improve the world. For example with improved diagnostics in medical applications; with improved performance of energy sources like  batteries, fuel cells and solar cells; with improved safety and security for people; or through exploring space and improving global environment monitoring. SystematIC is proud to contribute to improving performance of many integrated sensors.

FROM CONCEPT TO PRODUCTION

YOUR ASIC IMPLEMENTATION WITH INTEGRATED SENSORS

SystematIC has a track record of designing ASICs to sense and process signals in the magnetic, electrical, optical and thermal domain that find application in sensing movement and rotation, monitoring electrical currents,  fiber optic communication, optical disc readout, radiation detection and in temperature sensing and guarding.

We  partner with  semiconductor manufacturers as well as  SME's  to develop analog and mixed-signal ASICs  for a variety of industries. We understand the differences in customer requirements and market approach and are committed to find optimal solutions for every customer.

EAR PROTECTION CONTROL IC

4 weeks: discrete prototype demo

Our customer DEC develops and produces Dynamic Sound technology products which can typically be used as stand-alone hearing protection or embedded in headphone systems, hearing aids and hearables. The IC we designed for DEC was an example of an integration project for SME and it covers most aspects of a SystematIC turnkey solution. Our contribution extends from system study to  implementation, manufacturability and testability for ears, from zeroing in the IC process to IC design and layout and the production preparation.

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 X-ray sensor is applied for material analysis and an accurate matched channel readout and signal processing ASIC is required. 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. The digital electronics where designed as special CMOS CML logic to obtain low crosstalk.

CURRENT SENSOR

12 weeks: prototype to factory

We were handed the responsibility of a current sensor IC that  monitors charge and discharge currents of a battery in a mobile phone and will remain insensitive to the variations of the supply voltage. We took charge of the entire design trajectory along with evaluation and redesign that was needed to make the final product a notch better than competition.

TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR

4 weeks: architecture proposal

In this project we developed 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.

CUSTOM IC DESIGN

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