Markets We Serve

Semiconductor Industry

Semiconductors Manufacturers sell $480 billion of product and annually ship 1 trillion units. With a CAGR of 9.5% over the last 5 years, this industry has found its way into virtually every product manufactured today. Driving this growth is smaller technologies which allow more feature integration at lower cost. To accomplish this, teams of engineers must develop the Intellectual Property needed by leveraging these new technologies.

ASIC North has been supporting the semiconductor industry for over 20 years. Our engineers work with the worlds most advanced technologies to create high speed serial links, memories, phase-locked loops, analog signal interfaces and a host of other elements required by these new product applications. We have experience with Bulk CMOS, SiGe BiCMOS and SOI technologies. The largest semiconductor manufacturers in the world trust us to develop their intellectual property. How can we help you to in your semiconductor development efforts?

Internet of Things

Internet of Things (IoT) describes the integrated ecosystem of a device, software and a cloud-based system that can collect and share data. At ASIC North we focus on the device end of this equation by creating custom integrated circuit (IC) solutions that will enable your device to translate real-world signals and conditions into a digital form. We can then process that digital information using ARM based microcontrollers and subsequently use one of many radio transmission standards (i.e. WiFi, Bluetooth, LoRa, NBIoT, etc)  to communicate the acquired information to the cloud for further processing as appropriate for the application.

Aerospace & Defense

The Aerospace and Defense industries require products designed and manufactured to operate in the most extreme environmental conditions and with superior reliability. New devices must be developed in compliance with the AS9100 quality management system standard.

ASIC North has developed several successful devices for these industries and demonstrated a history of successfully meeting our customers’ requirements. We offer solutions that support high voltage interfaces, wideband radio transmission, GPS systems and much more. Our support can take the form of turnkey solutions where we handle the entire development and supply effort, subsystem development or staffing services where our engineering team works side by side with our customers engineers in support of their product development.

Regardless of the engagement type, ASIC North is ready to leverage advanced technologies to provide our Aerospace and Defense community with the products they need to accomplish their critical mission.

Commercial

The pace of application of electronic solutions in the commercial market is astounding. Infrastructure has been developed that allow same day delivery of consumer materials.  The age of drone delivery of consumer materials is dawning and our ability to track materials is becoming ever more accurate. These advancements in conducting commerce are facilitated by semiconductor devices that operate autonomously and can leverage the radio communication networks being developed around us. ASIC North, with its breadth of capabilities, is well positioned to develop these devices which will enhance our customers’ ability to conduct business.

Consumer Electronics

The consumer electronics market has exploded over the past 20 years and has fueled the growth noted previously in the semiconductor industry. Each year over 1 billion smart phones, 250 million personal computers, and 160 million notebooks are purchased. Ericcson is forecasting the number of cellular IoT connections is expected to reach 3.5 Billion in 2023, increasing at a CAGR of 30%. Smart Home devices such as energy management, security, smart appliances, comfort and lighting, home entertainment and control and connectivity add up to another 350 million devices in 2019 with a projection of reaching over 1 billion devices in 2023 for a CAGR of 33%. Customized integrated circuit devices are driving this industry. Do you need a custom chip design solution to put your company ahead of the competition?

Agricultural/Smart Farming

Farming is part of the first sector of economic activity.

ASIC North serves our customers in the agricultural industry by providing custom chip designs which leverage IoT communications for smart agriculture. From soil temperature and moisture sensors to livestock tracking systems, farmers can now check their crop and animal stats from the convenience of a smartphone app. ASIC North helps make this process a reality by designing customized components which are battery operated and autonomous. How can we apply this technology to your products?

Industrial/Manufacturing

According to the three-sector model, economies are divided into three sectors of activity

  1. Extraction of raw materials – This includes any industry involved in primary production that is the extraction and collection of natural resources; such as farming, forestry, hunting, fishing and mining.
  2. Manufacturing — This includes industries that produce a finished, usable product or are involved in construction.
  3. Services — The service sector consists of the production of services instead of end products. Services (also known as “intangible goods”) include attention, advice, access, experience, and affective labor.

The secondary sector of the world economy, manufacturing, is also growing at an amazing rate. For example, there were 484,000 industrial robots sold in 2019 with a CAGR growth rate of 14% predicted for the future. Semiconductor manufacturing equipment alone accounts for nearly $60 Billion annually. The global electronic contract manufacturing and design services industry accounts for a whopping $391 billion in revenue with an anticipated growth rate of almost 8% from 2019 to 2025.

ASIC North is currently developing components used in the manufacturing sector. Allow us to work with your company to apply the latest technologies to develop your next generation line of equipment.
