SkyWater and Intrinsix Partner to Offer Advanced Design Services for High Performance Mixed-Signal and Carbon Nanotube Technologies
Intrinsix leverages 30-year heritage as a leading design services firm to provide solutions for markets including aerospace & defense, rad-hard, biomedical, and IoT
BLOOMINGTON, MN and MARLBOROUGH, MA, March 19, 2019 – SkyWater Technology Foundry, the trusted innovation partner for tomorrow’s most advanced technology solutions, and Intrinsix Corp., an advanced semiconductor design services firm, today announced a partnership to offer SkyWater customers a wider breadth of design solutions, addressing a broad range of high performance mixed-signal and other microelectronic device applications. In addition, the engagement will provide design support for emerging carbon nanotube-based 3DSoC and related integrated circuit architectures.
Intrinsix offers semiconductor design services to customers who need Trusted solutions at the leading edge of technology. These services start at product concept and finish at working systems. Along the way, customer innovation is melded with the latest design techniques and solutions in a way that optimizes outcome and lowers risk – state of the art meets state of the practice for aggressive mixed-signal SoCs.
“It’s a natural fit for us to add SkyWater to our foundry partnership network. Both companies are focused on enabling design of new products that have the potential to disrupt or drive markets,” said Jim Gobes, CEO, Intrinsix Corp. “In an increasingly diverse landscape, we see an exploding need for advanced development and flexible volume foundry services. SkyWater is addressing this need and we look forward to working with them to enable customers with first time success.”
“By partnering with Intrinsix, we strengthen our design enablement ecosystem, offering silicon-proven services and IP which provide a wider range of complete solutions to our customers in several of today’s emerging markets. Additionally, their long track record and DMEA Trusted Accreditation aligns well with our focus on supporting mil/aero programs and customers designing in IP sensitive industries,” said Rick Harding, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, SkyWater Technology Foundry.
Intrinsix is thoroughly familiar with SkyWater’s process design kits (PDKs) and contributes to SkyWater’s Multi Project Wafer (MPW) FastShuttle Program for 90nm and 130nm process flows, offering a low-cost way for designers to verify IP and concepts through the Intrinsix ecosystem or directly through SkyWater: www.skywatertechnology.com/mpw-fastshuttle/. The Intrinsix-SkyWater relationship is also expanding its scope to develop PDKs for a carbon nanotube based 3DSoC technology platform.
SkyWater and Intrinsix are both exhibiting at the GOMAC conference on March 25-28, 2019 in Albuquerque, NM at booth numbers 511 and 604 respectively.
