SENSOR IP

SENSIBLE REUSE

In our world of smart appliances sensing the physical aspects of our environment is key: we like to know (measure) temperature, sunlight, position, distance, pressure and so on, and use that information in our (control) systems. For that data to be processed the (analog) physical signals need to be converted to electrical signals: the function of the sensor. An integrated (smart) sensor can do this and when realized in semiconductor technology can be mass-produced at low-cost. With our analog IC design expertise we have been involved in the development of many sensor readout circuits. But we also take care of integration of the related signal processing such as high resolution AD conversion and the digital interfacing. Related to these developments we have know-how and a portfolio of circuits that can be reused in integrated sensor product developments, such as:

  • AD conversion (SAR, Sigma-Delta, 10-16 bits)
  • DA conversion (Resistive Voltage DAC, Current DAC's, Sigma-Delta)
  • Low-noise front end (LNA)
  • Low-offset amplifiers (chopping, auto zeroing, Ping-Pong, trimmed)
  • Wheatstone bridge readout
  • Optical: Photodiode readout (IR, Proximity, Ambient, X-ray), PSD (Linear, Array)
  • Magnetic: Linear Field, Current Sensing, Geartooth, MR
  • Other: Temperature (internal/external),  Capacitive, Pressure, Flow, Current/Power/Charge (R-Sense)

APPLYING OUR IP REDUCES RISK AND DEVELOPMENT TIME

SUCCESSFUL INTEGRATION GUARANTEED

With our strong experience in designing best-in-class ASICs, we offer a consistent portfolio of silicon-proven analog IPs.

For sensor products high accuracy, low-noise and low-power are often asked for, so we are equipped to design for optimal compromise in signal-to-noise ratio and power consumption and this is reflected in the high performance of our designs and IPs.

SystematIC’s design portfolio includes MEMS sensor readout and a diversity of readout interfaces for sensing movement, rotation, electrical currents, optical signals, radiation, pressure, flow and temperature.

Our strategy is to offer IP on various platforms and selected technology nodes that are often preferred by our customers. With application of our IP we offer the following benefits compared to full custom design:

  • Reduced development time
  • Reduced risk (proven silicon)
  • Known performance, area, current consumption, testibility
  • Compliance with our design flows

Our license model is flexible and can be a combination of fixed fee and/or royalties. It is our experience that IC products often can be made with a combination of existing IP and full-custom design. This combination allows each IC to contain a new unique feature set and optimal performance for its specific application.
