VLSI Design

     CIS' design team members are experts in all phases of CMOS custom integrated circuit design. CIS has additional experience in BiCMOS, Bipolar, and CMOS memory and imaging technologies. The team has a strong focus on custom design, and is comfortable with automatic layout techniques for digital designs, such as standard cell synthesis and automatic place and route. Customers can reduce design cycle time by taking advantage of CIS's Intellectual Property (IP), or by using CIS's expertise to accelerate their own IP development cycle.
