Today, the Analog Components, on an average, contribute to 60%-70% of the real estate on the silicon. In order to spin these silicon out successfully, there needs to be a very strong Analog IP expertise, including the hardcore Analog circuit design expertise, Integration knowledge and Strong benchmarking capabilities. Now-a-days, these forces drive silicon based product solution companies towards having a top class in-house Analog, RF and MEMS team to ensure seamless and successful chip development cycle.
We, at BlackPepper, believe that Analog is the future of the silicon, also the solution to many problems of exponentially scaling up digital world, as seen today. So we have put in years of effort in building the strong Analog expertise internal to the company. With us, there is a mixed blend of Analog Circuit Design as well as Layout Design capabilities in the areas of IP design, Foundation IP, RF design etc. Another area of focus is the Transistor level design of analog and mixed-signal circuits for smart power stages and other low power management functions. The team has the experience of handling and owning the complete IP design from scratch in advanced technology nodes adhering to any of the design specification. The team has worked for customers in wireless, automotive, connectivity, consumer applications, medical and IoT markets.
