Silicon Engineering


All your digital products and services start … with a chip. Silicon engineering is essential in this venture. Getting it right reduces time to market, lower energy consumption, improves security, better customer experience.

Delivering this is hard

You need a technology and business partner that understands silicon engineering and its role in solutions. How it will combine with other digital technologies like Cloud, Data & AI and its application.  The specifics of your industry: automotive, consumer products, telecom or life sciences, and how silicon engineering enables this.

Silicon Engineering is a strategic business at the heart of our Intelligent Industry ambition. We have a long track record of client success by leveraging our existing worldwide network of thousands of silicon & embedded engineers.

We also focus on turnkey semiconductor design services, from specifications to tape-out to post silicon validation for semiconductor companies and OEMs

We can support our Customers on multiple aspects:

  • Chip selection (commercial-off-the-shelf)
  • Custom IC designs (ASICs, VLSI) and process migrations and Derivatives
  • Platform approach, leveraging the full power of Chiplets and open-source architectures (RISC-V)
  • Vertical expertise (e.g. Security and Cybersecurity, AI, HPC, 5G/6G…)
  • Product Life Cycle Management
  • Sustainability impact
  • Sovereignty
