When companies that provide semiconductor design services claim to have “end-to-end capabilities” in IC design and development, N. Ramakrishnan (Ramki), President and CEO of Mandate Chips and Circuits Pvt. Ltd., has a strong contention

His view is that this really is not the case and capabilities are exaggerated. Even large semiconductor MNCs with captive facilities in India do not normally embark on projects involving full chip product development work due to a variety of reasons. “However, our aim is to be different. We want to be seen by our customers as a preferred partner for collaborative product and IP development,” says Ramki.

Mandate (derived from Mixed, Analog, Digital and Advanced Technology) is a growing company with strong background and expertise in the Analog and Mixed Signal (AMS) semiconductor space. Its founders and core members have vast knowledge and experience in the semiconductor field, particularly for automotive, hi-tech, and electronics industries.

Mandate’s capabilities encompass the entire gamut of activities for semiconductor product development and lifecycle management. This includes requirements gathering, specifications finalization, system design, and circuit and layout design leading to tape out and beyond - including prototype testing, verification, and product engineering (engineering sample iterations) leading to mass production. In addition, support, maintenance, variants, and derivates are also catered for. “Our approach is to have long term engagements with our customers and be relevant to their business,” says Ramki.
