With the influx of IoT, wearables and newer and newer versions of smartphones and memories, semiconductor industry is anticipating a significant growth. As the demand for swifter connections, larger network capacity and more complex designs are arising, INVECAS, Inc, - a semiconductor IP design house, is geared up to capitalize on this opportunity by conquering the unique challenges ingrained in deep sub-micron technologies. For starters, most SMEs are unable to work directly with foundry, since the volumes won't be in millions. For such small customers, INVECAS acts as an aggregator by leveraging foundry to expand their business and providing superior support. The company also manages their supply chain, which would be a highly-expensive task for them otherwise.

"Our flexible license structure offered in extremely competitive price along with end-to-end service model covering from very basic function like standard cell library to highly-complex memory function helps SMEs that doesn't have enough design team or right in-house competency," explains Dasaradha Gude, Chairman, INVECAS, Inc. Being equipped with such broad portfolio of IP offerings and design services naturally enables the company to achieve superior integration services. The company works closely with GLOBALFOUNDRIES - a leading provider of advanced semiconductor manufacturing, design and technology solutions - and has developed profound knowledge on their technology and process. This empowers INVECAS to build a seamless library development along with foundry, which plays an immense role in the process of designing an IP optimally.

Breaking the Time Factor

Today, it has become imperative for technology providers to always be on their toes and formulate plans that enable a swift 'go-to-market strategy'. Founded by industry visionaries, INVECAS nullifies this threat with its unique background and closeness to the foundry that helps to develop IPs extremely faster. However, it is not just about developing, but making it work at the first time. This perfection comes only after a deep understanding of the process and vast IP designing experience. INVECAS' team has significant experience core hardening on various processors, bunch of in-house tools (hardware & software) and methodologies for design productivity to derive utmost performance out of the core within astounding timeline. INVECAS' team carries experience of over 40 successful tape-outs that have got 100 percent first time silicon pass.
