Summary Problem Solution Industry Landscape
We’re a startup chip company specializing in the manufacture of specialty components for the
high performance embedded electronics market.
During the development of our high performance encryption products, our team found itself looking for embedded components that weren’t readily available in the market. In fact, we observed an industry trend that has formed a need for a new category of component altogether. The most glaring opportunity is for a high performance memory chip that’s both easy to use and price competitive with the more commonly used D-Ram which is cheaper & slower. Such a memory chip would be the first choice of any engineer if it were available.
There are simply no memory products in the market that provide high speed memory at a cost low enough to compete with common low performance D-RAM. D-RAM is slow and requires a complicated memory controller interface to use, so it’s only relegated to use where performance isn’t crucial. Engineers tolerate its complexity & error rate because of the cost. Now that performance components are becoming more important, D-RAM chips just aren’t getting the job done. Memory chips with larger size & MUCH faster speeds are more suitable for this market. Furthermore, once you’re using high speed memory, you need to be able to interface with other components at high speed and this requires a flexible menu of IO standards to make it easy. This confluence of desirable features results in the Signal Semiconductor memory chip.
High speed, high density semiconductors are only possible with hand routed design. This is a very small field in the semiconductor industry and it also happens to be
our core strength.
