Top-10 Semiconductor company

“We had faced many ESD problems which could not be solved easily two decades ago, especially on thin gate oxide process. Now, few ESD problems appear in our IC development, thanks to ESD protection technology that has been licensed from Sofics.”

“Smaller ICs can help LCD display manufacturers meet the cost pressures they face, and also offer an opportunity to develop even more compact designs. Our engineers achieved this breakthrough IC design for our customers just 8 months after we implemented the new technology, with no redesigns required.”

“… consistently manufacture chips that perform at high voltages with full electrostatic discharge (ESD) and latch-up protection. We have implemented these TakeCharge devices in our various high volume products, such as LCD and OLED driver devices, where they deliver substantial added value for Oki and its customers.”
