With a track record of hundreds of successful projects, we are the trusted partner that leading companies rely on to deliver right-first-time ASICs that ensure their leading position in the market and therefore they keep returning to us project after project.
We offer a full turnkey, end-to-end approach from idea to silicon and you can engage with us at any point along the journey to your custom ASIC.
Here’s an overview of how we can turn your ideas into a state-of-the-art silicon chip.
1. Design: Nurturing ideas into your custom ASIC
The journey begins with ideation and project planning. Our expert teams will collaborate closely with you to understand your unique requirements, technical goals, and market objectives. We offer tailored solutions that optimise power consumption, performance, and cost-effectiveness, ensuring that your new ASIC aligns perfectly with your vision.
Key Steps in the Design Process:
Concept Planning and Architecture: Together, we lay the groundwork for your ASIC, defining its key features, functionality, and target specifications.
Feasibility Study: We conduct thorough feasibility studies to assess the viability of your project, identifying potential challenges and recommending suitable solutions.
System-on-Chip (SoC) Design: Our experienced designers craft the ASIC floorplan, optimising the chip's architecture for optimal performance and scalability.
Prototyping and Verification: We develop prototypes to validate ASIC functionality and perform rigorous verification to ensure design accuracy.
Customisation and Iteration: Throughout the design process, we encourage client feedback and accommodate customisation requests, iterating to achieve the best results.
2. Manufacture: Precision and Expertise in ASIC Fabrication
With ASIC design finalized, the project transitions into the manufacturing phase. Sondrel partners with world-class foundries such as TSMC, Samsung and Global Foundries to ensure the highest quality standards during fabrication. Our manufacturing experts oversee the entire process, adhering to strict quality control measures to deliver ASICs that surpass expectations.
Key Steps in the Manufacturing Process:
Foundry Selection: We meticulously choose foundries based on project requirements, ensuring the most suitable manufacturing process, technology node, and capabilities.
Layout and Mask Preparation: Our designers create precise layouts, defining the positioning of each component on the ASIC, which is then converted into masks for fabrication.
Wafers and Wafer Testing: The ASIC design is etched onto silicon wafers, and each wafer undergoes thorough testing to identify defects and ensure functionality.
Assembly and Packaging: We collaborate with trusted packaging partners to package the ASIC and protect it with the appropriate packaging solution.
Final Testing and Quality Assurance: The fully packaged ASICs undergo comprehensive testing and quality assurance checks to guarantee flawless performance.
3. Supply Chain Management: Seamless Delivery and Support
In parallel with the manufacturing process, Sondrel takes charge of the supply chain, optimising logistics and ensuring timely delivery. Our efficient supply chain management streamlines the flow of components, reducing lead times and minimising the risk of supply chain disruptions.
Key Steps in Supply Chain Management:
Component Sourcing and Procurement: Our supply chain team works diligently to source high-quality components from reputable suppliers, ensuring on-time availability.
Logistics Coordination: We oversee the smooth movement of components and finished ASICs, collaborating with trusted logistics partners to optimise delivery times.
Timely Distribution: Once ASICs are ready for deployment, we ensure prompt delivery to clients' locations, eliminating unnecessary delays.
Post-Sales Support: Our commitment doesn't end with delivery. We provide dedicated post-sales support, addressing any issues or inquiries to ensure complete customer satisfaction.
