Benefits of designing with Silicon components

Simplified application design
Plug & play component
Designing a single component
Reduced overall number of components
From 10s to 100s of SMD components
integrated in a single PICS
Simplified design implementation
Fully tested components
S-parameters data available
Miniaturization
PICS footprint is up to ten times smaller than
that of a discrete solution
Increased performance
Fully tested robust components

Take advantage of our design center

By using PICS you save time and resources to focus on core competencies: architecture and product design
Reduce your development time with robust Plug & Play components
Fully tested IPD
S-parameter data available for easy simulation
Save design resources
Leverage on your engineering capability
Use our on-site support to strengthen your
teams and develop their skills
Shorten your time to market
Re-use of existing blocks
Multiple designs for experimentation
supported in a single batch
Short time to prototype: avg. 2 months
Short time to re-design: avg. 1 month
First time right in over 80 % of cases

Optimized purchasing

Fewer components
From 10s to 100s of SMD components integrated in a single PICS
Fewer suppliers
One IPD supplier instead of several capacitor, resistor and inductor suppliers
1 qualified plant in Europe with ISO certifications
Simpler supply chain management
Manage only one supplier for ordering, delivery and payment

Gains in manufacturing, assembly & test

Fewer manufacturing steps
Pick & Place 1 component instead of hundreds saves throughput time
Free up production capacity
Thanks to reduced Pick & Place, increase your manufacturing capacity
Industrial investment reduction
Lower capacity required for passives drives your manufacturing and test equipment investment costs down
More robust designs
Using fully tested components increases your line yield
Less component dispersion improves your system quality
Reduce your test time

Distribution

Smaller products, lower distribution cost
More boxes in each container
Reduced packaging and recycling cost
Smaller products
