    Our Mission

    To be the trusted analog, mixed-signal and high-voltage IC design partner and ASIC provider for your innovative developments.

    Background

    Enabling our customers to develop innovative products. That is our core business, that’s where we leverage our unique expertise in analog, mixed-signal and high-voltage IC design.
     
    Because we are independent, we can offer the best trade-offs, both technically and economically. We look to build long-term relations with our customers, by earning their trust and by developing innovative ICs with first silicon success.
     
    In 2004, ICsense started as a spin-off from the University of Leuven (Belgium). Our roots are in the university’s ESAT-MICAS labs, which are internationally recognized for their work in mixed-signal analog IC design. Since, we have matured into a foundry-independent IC design house offering advanced IC design services and turnkey ASIC solutions. Our engineers have a cumulative R&D experience of more than 360 years in analog, mixed-signal and high-voltage IC design. We are backed by high-tech VC funds Allegro Investment Fund and Gemma Frisius and by local smart business angels.
     
    ICsense has unique design expertise in:
    • Power management
    • High-efficient DC/DC conversion
    • High-voltage IC design (up to 700V), drivers
    • MEMS, sensor and actuator interfacing
    • High-accuracy, low-power ADC-DAC
    • Highly-accurate timing circuits without external components
    • Ultra low power analog, mixed-signal
