We provide what is called a full turn key (FTK) solution which commences with the ASIC specification, design, simulation, layout and verification and continues with the evaluation, qualification and in-house production test (both wafer probe and packaged devices) of the ASIC. This also includes wafer fabrication, packaging and evaluation of engineering samples, pre-production and production devices.
Our supply chain management team works with our customer’s purchasing teams to ensure on time delivery of 100% production tested devices to a place of the customers choosing and to ensure this, we have production test facilities in both Europe and Asia. The FTK service is concluded with the ongoing Quality Assurance team that audits and monitors the foundry and packaging houses.
The advantages of this FTK service provision are many ranging from one point of contact for project and / or production issues to the warranty of the production device being with Swindon.
Our customers gain access to leading in-house design and production test and calibration facilities. We provide customers with a competitive advantage, both technical and commercial, and guarantee the supply of the highest quality ASICs for the lifetime of their product.
We achieve this with careful selection of the fabrication processes we select for use in a specific project based upon technical and commercial requirements. Once the device is in volume production, the Swindon team ensures that there are finished goods in stock to satisfy immediate requirement and the there is sufficient Work in Progress (WiP) in line to satisfy future demand. On time every time.
Your Next Step
It is an easy process to establish the approach we take when discussing your project. Your design team will have a clear idea about the product you are developing, the timescales involved and the budget. All aspects of the process flow, development and payment milestones are agreed prior to commencing the project and there are no hidden costs. Swindon will quickly show you how its engineering excellence in delivering the latest ASIC technology will help to differentiate your product from your completion and ensure a commercial and technical advantage.
