High-reliability ASIC

ASIC for high-reliability at 180 nm

Dolphin has designed successfully this circuit for X-ray detection. Dolphin succeeded in the challenging performances of this ASIC.

  • Performances:
    • Low noise < 20 electron rms
    • Full scale range: 22,200 electrons
    • Low power consumption: < 650 µW
    • Temperature Range: [-55°C ∼ +20°C]

ASIC for telecom at 130 nm

Dolphin designed a Mixed Signal circuit integrating ADC, DAC, SERDES and 250 memory instances. Dolphin managed high level of analysis all along the flow (timing, crosstalk, IR-drop etc.) and its packaging.

  • The constraints resulted in high challenges successfully passed by Dolphin:
    • Timing
    • Final die size (more than 60 mm2)
    • Number or RAM: 250
