ROUSSET, FRANCE, June 11, 2012 – Dolphin Integration and LFoundry are happy to announce they are setting up a partnership for the fabrication of Dolphin’s products. These designs based on LFoundry LF 150 technology concern SOCs (Systems on Chip), ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) and FPGA to ASIC migration.
Based on LFoundry's Product Design Kit (PDK), and their technologies, Dolphin’s mixed signal circuits are dedicated to the European Defense industries as well as high-reliability markets, and are supported by Dolphin’s experience of more than 25 years in analog, logic and mixed-signal microelectronic design.
LFoundry brings to this partnership their LF150 technology, based on the 150 nm geometry. This long-standing technology has been thoroughly tested and validated by numerous LFoundry customers. Dolphin Integration has selected LFoundry for their ability to ensure the continuous delivery of their semiconductor solutions, with their flexibility to support customer needs. At LFoundry, Dolphin Integration will benefit from the company’s customer support ensuring reliable and perennial deliveries for small to large volumes.
“We are very happy to partner with LFoundry for our mixed-signal products targeting the defense and industrial markets”, said Louis Zangara, Vice-President of Dolphin Integration. “We have selected LFoundry to benefit from their experience and proximity, both factors being key for the European Defense equipment makers”.
“Our partnership with Dolphin Integration is a recognition of the quality of our services, both in terms of manufacturing and in terms of customer service. Our long-term commitment to support Dolphin’s needs has played a central role in setting up our partnership”, said Jean-Pierre Delesse, President LFoundry Rousset.
