Cobham Experiences

Cobham has been providing the latest innovations in Digital and Mixed-Signal ASICs for over 30 years for HiRel applications. Starting with  0.6µm (we still support 5V) to now 90nm technologies, produced in State-of-the-Art foundries worldwide, we reach new levels for our customers. In 2000 we entered the commercial/industrial/medical mixed-signal marketplace with mixed-signal IC design services and ASICs. This diversification expanded into the data-networking marketplace and complements current product offerings in the high-reliability standard product and ASIC areas.

Cobham is a fab-independent semiconductor supplier with the flexibility to choose among numerous world-class processes that offer exceptionally high performance at the lowest cost for your design. We exploit the advantages of third-party wafer fabrication and have installed our own process modules into commercial foundries. We boast a high rate of first-pass success.

Cobham Technology Expertise

Cobham's four Design Centers are staffed with a team of mixed-signal design experts with numerous years of IC design experience and has successfully designed and released into production custom mixed-signal ASIC's for commercial, industrial, telecommunications, medical, military, and space applications.
