With over 45 years of combined advanced IC development expertise, Encore Semi and Trusted Semi has partnered to establish a world-class engineering infrastructure to provide “Concept to Production Part” services for the aerospace and defense market.

Historically, aerospace and defense companies relied predominately on ASIC technology to support their semiconductor needs. With technology advancements in FPGA’s, all, or most of, these ASIC designs have been replaced by FPGA-based solutions. This move to FPGA-based solutions has left aerospace and defense companies without the expertise in the latest ASIC design methodologies, EDA tools, and advanced packaging technologies needed for state-of-the-art ASICs and custom microelectronics.

“Today’s FPGA solutions require the same rigorous design and verification methodologies as the most advanced SoCs,” said Encore Semi Chairman, Behrooz Abdi. “Encore Semi’s experience in executing 100+ integrated circuit designs for low power wireless and wireline communication applications enables us to deliver complex advanced node SoCs required by the aerospace and defense industry.”

Moreover, aerospace and defense missions require best-in-class microelectronics (digital, analog, mixed-signal, and RF) with low SWAP-P, utilizing on-shore US resources to meet US Government ITAR and Trusted requirements. Al Hurst, CEO of Trusted Semi is well acquainted with these requirements. “This partnership with Encore Semi brings added expertise in mixed-signal IC and ASIC design down to 7nm which strengthens Trusted Semi’s existing IC design, advanced IC packaging, Trusted manufacturing, and radiation effects analysis and mitigation capabilities,” he said. “The focus is on advanced microelectronic solutions supporting the US Government with its mission-critical needs.”
