Analog Master Slice

  • What is Analog Master Slice?

    The Analog Master Slice is the service which offers the original analog semi-customized IC/LSI for customers.
    The wafers which are prefabricated transistors, resistors, capacitors and other devices are prepared, then creation of the original IC/LSI is accomplished by adding the glass mask of wiring layers to be customized as desired.

    The cost and lead time can be reduced since the common master slice is utilized.

    General ICs such as OpAmps does not have enough functions, Creation of IC/LSI from discrete circuit.

    The cost and the lead time does not meet your requirement if utilizing full customized IC.

    This service can be helpful for the customers in case of situations listed above.

    *We are also handling the foundry service which offering OEM wafer production.

  • Feature

    High voltage, 5 inches, Bipolar is utilized.

    The lead time for ES(engineering samples) is usually 4 to 6 weeks after the layout design is completed.


Development process

The basic flow of developing an Analog Master Slice is as follows.
