RFIC Design
RFIC technologies

Monolithic designs, especially silicon based RFIC technologies, were always a cornerstone of our activities. Our experience encompasses most aspects of monolithic product development, beginning with the development of reliable modeling and simulation tools, support for device and technology development through a number RFIC design programs.

We have worked with several specific RFIC fabrication facilities including Intel, UMC and AMS and with technologies including RFCMOS and BICMOS and SiGe processes.

Our support services begin with concept feasibility evaluation going on to technology choice, RFIC targeted system design and definition through detailed circuit design of analog and mixed signal circuits. Full support of the design cycle includes design environment adaptation, IP procurement and library porting and translation as needed as well as test planning and data analysis, Evaluation kit design with associated application notes. This knowledge and experience allows us to properly assess advantages of each technology as well as integration issues, packaging effects and development cost.

Our proven IP functional cells list over 20 different types of circuits ranging from pico-second speed digital gates in GaAs to mm-wave amplifiers, mixers and oscillators.
