Decide when it’s time to integrate your discrete components into an own ASIC (Application Specific IC) as a way to lower costs.
In industrial (sensor) markets, the use of discrete components is often the first approach for a company to hit the market. However at a certain moment in time, the question comes wether or not to integrate these components into your own ASIC (Application Specific IC) as a way to lower costs (BOM-Bill Of Material, cost of assembly, cost of test). Other advantages include an increased performance, lower power consumption, smaller size and a guaranteed supply chain over the years. The decision to integrate or not depends on a number of business and technical factors which will be discussed during this webinar. There will be a special focus on functional safety (IEC61508) ASIC developments since this is growing segment in the industrial markets. The theoretical concepts will be illustrated with real world examples and business cases.
