Tokyo Japan, June 1, 2011 - New Japan Radio Co., Ltd. (Shinji Takeuchi, Representative Corporate Executive Officer, President).Today announced New Japan Radio, will start "The Analog Master Slice service" which can reduce the cost and lead-time of developing your new analog IC/LSI.
Integration of discrete function is conventionally solved, by using existing commodity products or customized products.
But it such as "Lacking of the functions", "Can't afford the cost and lead time for the new project".New Japan Radio will start the analog master slice service, offering more design flexibility and reducing development time, to be responsible for those issues.
The Analog Master Slice is the service which offers the original analog semi-customized IC/LSI for customers.
The wafers which are prefabricated transistors, resistors, capacitors and other devices are prepared, then creation of the original IC/LSI is accomplished by adding the glass mask of wiring layers to be customized as desired.
The cost and lead-time can be reduced since the common master slice is utilized.The lead-time for ES (engineering samples) is usually 4 weeks after the layout design is completed.*1
