Alchip Technologies Limited was founded in 2002 by semiconductor veterans from Silicon Valley and Japan with a business focus on turnkey fabless ASIC production for System-on-Chip (SoC) designs. The founding team has more than fifteen years experience on average in successfully developing high-complexity SoC products and has 100% first silicon success track record.
As chip complexity increases and process technology advances, physical design becomes the bottleneck of chip creation. According to Collett International Research, more than 65% of IC/ASIC designs required re-spins in 2003, seriously impacting product schedule and putting companies under tremendous time-to-market pressure. With excellent design expertise and proven SoC design methodology, Alchip enables customers achieve one-pass silicon success and therefore meet customers faster-time-to-market.
In addition to enabling customers faster-time-to-market, Alchip also helps customers reduce cost through design and product engineering. Facing today’s competitive markets, most semiconductor companies are under great cost pressure. Alchip endows customers cost advantage over competitors in the increasingly competitive markets.
In summary, customers will be able to focus on chip functionality and system design by outsourcing physical design and chip production to Alchip. Alchip’s leading-edge solutions ensure customers faster time to market and improved cost efficiency. It is a win-win for both sides.
Alchip currently has offices in Silicon Valley, Shin-Yokohama, Hsin-Chu, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
