SAN JOSE, CA, -- JVD Inc., inventor of the iASIC and a leader in analog and mixed-signal ASIC design and manufacturing announced that it has agreed to cooperate on several strategic levels with MIE Labs, Inc. of Columbia, MD. Under the terms of the agreement, JVD will have access to MIE Labs technical design resources, giving JVD a greater range of design skills from which to service its growing demand for analog ASICs.
JVD's approach to ASIC design, called iASICs, shatters most conventional analog IC design methodology by embodying a full custom approach rather than using library-cell based solutions. iASICs create the smallest chips and thus guarantee customers the lowest total cost solution.
Access to the MIE Labs design resources not only gives JVD a physical presence on the East Coast, but also expands the company's portfolio of design skills and capabilities.
"We look forward to working with the team at MIE Labs as they can now expand their portfolio offerings to include our San Jose based wafer probe facility," said Mike VanDierendonck, JVD's president. "We will also be managing their assembly and test requirements as those needs arise."
JVD, Inc. was founded in 1982 by Jerry VanDierendonck, a member of the TI team that developed the world's first microcontroller, TMS 1000. JVD is a leader in analog mixed-signal ASIC design, manufacturing and test services. The company provides turn-key analog and analog-mixed signal ICs for custom and standard products as well as contract Test Services for chip companies, OEMs and ODMs. The company has expertise in semiconductor Bipolar, BCD, CMOS, and BiCMOS analog/digital chip design, including power management, power protection, display drivers, audio, low power RF, and standard products in high and low volume applications.
As a full service fabless semiconductor company, JVD, Inc. provides custom integrated circuit solutions for a wide variety of customers, providing cost effective, high performance devices to meet their challenging design requirements.
