General description of the company

advICo carries out part of, or the complete chip development process on behalf of the customer. Our development team has profound know-how in the design of analog/mixed-signal ICs in various fields. We have 15 years of experience in the design of RF- and microwave circuit boards. advIco offers pre-developed circuits(semiconductor intellectual property) available as complete chips with customer-specific modifications or as circuit blocks which can be integrated into larger IC designs ? reducing development time, costs, and risk for our customers. We offer prototype testing, and can perform field simulations for electrical, optical, thermal, and mechanical problems (COMSOL Multiphysics, Sonnet). We also offer design kit development and customization for cadence, AWR Analog Office and Catena design programs, including productivity tools and data translators such as CadenceToComsol. advICo is the exclusive distribution and support hub for Sonnet Software's comprehensive EM simulation suite in northern and western Europe.
