INVIA is a semiconductor design house focused on embedded security. We deliver analog, digital and software Intellectual Properties (IPs) intended to secure Integrated Circuits (ICs). INVIA’s customers are the global leaders in digital security.
Invia was founded in 2006 by a team of smart card experts. Invia’s key members have more than 15 years of experience in the design and test of contact and contactless flash-based smart card products. Before joining Invia, they held various positions in smart card divisions of leading multinationals. Based in the South of France, Invia’s R&D team comprises 60 security experts, including 15 PhDs. Invia is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Gemalto group since 2013.
Invia’s portfolio includes mixed-signal building blocks and cryptographic libraries specifically designed to protect System-on-Chips (SoCs) against security threats - eavesdropping, tampering, counterfeiting, cloning and reverse-engineering - while minimizing the area and power overhead.
Invia’s customers are system integrators addressing markets where security is a key requirement: military components, payment cards, conditional access (pay-TV), ID, SIM cards, secure terminals, medical devices, smart grid, smart home and automotive.
Invia reduces the time-to-market and the integration risks by taking into account its customer’s design flow at the earlier design stage. Invia provides comprehensive documentations and quality support for most Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools. Invia’s product engineering team has proven track records down to the 28 nm node.
Because security shall be addressed at each project stage, Invia’s expertise ranges from specification to certification through implementation and qualification.
