Full Custom Design of OptoElectronic and Analog ASICs

Many decades of analog, high-frequency and opto-electronic circuit design experience of A³PICs can bring your ideas to reality. A³PICs offers beside integrated circuit design also general analog, RF and microwave circuit development. With all this, optimized custom solutions can be found at a reasonable cost. An example of the advanced capabilties of A³PICs with our integrated photodiodes is a full custom highly parallel optical receiver with a total throughput of 140Gbps, the ARTX9345.
