Speeding innovation for industry
Success | Integrated circuits design
Asygn’s software can drastically cut the design and testing time for analog and mixed integrated circuits, with applications in imaging systems, radiofrequency communication systems, sensors, and highspeed I/O.
Founded in 2008 as a spinoff of STMicroelectronics and Leti, Asygn draws from a decade of experience in industrialscale circuit design and testing. Asygn helps semiconductor foundries, designers, and fabless manufacturers get their products to market faster with software that integrates seamlessly into existing workflows.
With Asygn software, simulations can be carried out between 100 and 1,000 times faster than with conventional tools. And Asygn’s testing functions are especially powerful for circuits requiring a high figure of merit, like sensor circuits. Asygn also opens the door to software-based testing that was previously inconceivable, like for imagers.
The company is based near Grenoble and targets the European and US markets, performing advanced R&D in association with Leti.
