System Optimization

Silicon-to-Silicon™ System Optimization capabilities assist designers in optimizing the high-speed serial path from bare die, to IC package and assembly, to PCB, to connectors and cable assemblies, and back again. These capabilities include:

  • Assisting IC layout designers to optimize power and signal integrity of the bare die during the IC design process
  • Developing complex, customized IC packaging and assembly solutions enabling maximum IC density, precision and ruggedness
  • Enabling PCB designers to create denser, faster PCBs by providing factory and field-based technical support to ensure signal chain optimization
  • Providing the products, tools, design expertise and consulting services to link high-speed signal chains between PCBs and through backplanes
  • Engineer industry standard and customized copper and optical cable assemblies at data rates up to 28Gbps and beyond
  • IC Packaging
  • Advanced package design and assembly capabilities along with the ability to assist in choosing the best technology and materials for an application, helping to save valuable design and engineering time.
