Digital design

ICsense offers the complete digital flow, from architectural concept to GDS, under one roof. Its digital design flow consists of industry-standard EDA tools for e.g. simulation, synthesis, logic equivalence checking, STA, formal verification, place-and-route and ATPG test pattern generation. This flow is further enhanced with lightweight in-house tools for otherwise error-prone processes and overall improved productivity.

As part of its project execution, ICsense offers state-of-the-art verification with automated daily regressions which are fully integrated into its global requirement management system.

Located on the same physical site, our team of experienced digital design & verification engineers works in close cooperation with the analog teams to create best-of-a-kind custom mixed-signal ASICs.
