TakeCharge is currently in use in standard CMOS, ASICs, FPGAs, LCD drivers, power ICs, SoCs, network and communication ICs, and other designs. Applications include HDMI, USB 3.0, SATA, SerDes, RFID, and LNA. Contact us for more information on specific applications, including mixed-signal and mixed-voltage I/Os.
TakeCharge is more economical than hiring additional ESD staff, engaging a consultant, or buying shuttle space.
It is also less costly than standard, seemingly free ESD solutions. These often involve hidden costs. They may occupy large silicon areas, require additional process masks and steps, and cause IC/SOC implementation failures. Since TakeCharge works the first time, there are no expensive re-spins, and the product gets to market faster.
