Flexible Design Engagement Model and Manufacturing

Open-Silicon provides the most flexible engagement model in the ASIC industry. Customer can engage at Spec Handoff, RTL Handoff, Netlist Handoff or GDSII Handoff and then Open-Silicon seamlessly handles every aspect of the entire process, from design engineering, IP procurement, fabrication, package assembly & test, silicon validation, and production through end-of-life.

Open-Silicon brings years of semiconductor design and manufacturing expertise to every engagement. A team of design, process, packaging, test and product engineers work closely with customer to identify and select the right process technology and IP solutions for each design. After RTP (Release to Production) global manufacturing team ensures that the products meet and exceed the yield and quality targets which is evident by the very low DPPM achieved since Open-Silicon’s inception in 2003 (< 40 DPPM return rate in over a hundred million units shipped).
