ICsense is one of Europe’s top analog IC design companies. Our core business is custom IC design services and ASIC design and supply for the automotive, aerospace, medical, industrial and consumer market.
ICsense’s expertise is in analog, mixed-signal and high-voltage IC design focused on:
- High-performance and low-power
- Power and battery management
- Sensor, actuator and MEMS interfacing/acquisition
- High-voltage IC design
ICsense performs radiation-hard mixed-signal building block and ASIC design for space applications. Several radiation-hard IP blocks are available through imec’s DARE library in UMC and XFAB 180nm technology, such as ADCs, DACs, voltage references, DCDC converters, regulators, PLLs, clocks, … These blocks are integrated in the Digital Programmable Controller ASIC of Thales Alenia Space ETCA that has been developed in cooperation with Thales, ESA, imec and ICsense.
ICsense has incorporated state-of-the-art simulation methodologies for radiation hard IC design in its unique design environment. It takes into account effects like TID (Total Ionisation Dose), SEE (Single Event Effects), such as SET (Single Event Transients). ICsense’s structured analog/mixed-signal design environment is extended with a unique method to simulate radiation effects and quantify counter measures for SETs and SEEs.
