Agreement Expands Breadth of Design and Manufacturing Services for Both Companies
San Jose, CA, April 16, 2013 – JVD Inc., inventor of the iASIC™ and a leader in Analog and Mixed-Signal ASIC Design and Manufacturing announced today that it has agreed to cooperate on several strategic levels with Systemcom, Ltd. of Zagreb, Croatia. Under the terms of the agreement, JVD will have access to Systemcom’s technical design resources, giving JVD a greater range of design skills from which to service its growing demand for Analog ASICs.
JVD’s approach to ASIC design, called iASICs, shatters most conventional analog IC design methodology by embodying a full custom approach rather than using library-cell based solutions. iASICs create the smallest chips and thus guarantee customers the lowest total cost solution.
Access to the Systemcom’s design resources not only gives JVD a physical presence in the Europe, but also expands the company’s portfolio of design skills and capabilities, especially in the area of for nanotechnology biosensors, a focus market for Systemcom.
“We look forward to working with the team at Systemcom team as they can now expand their portfolio offerings to include our San Jose based wafer probe facility, and use JVD resources for some of their silicon fabrication” said Mike VanDierendonck, JVD’s president. “We will also be managing their assembly and test requirements as those needs arise.”
