ICsense has built up considerable expertise in flip-chip and WLP (Wafer Level Packaging) solutions to accommodate for lowest form factor and highest performance.

另外,ICsense可以提供裸死在弗吉尼亚州rious forms (blue foil, waffle packs, …)



A Single Layer Maskset (SLM) is generated to start volume production. The ASIC is first qualified by means of an industrialization lot (of a few batches) and a skew lot in most cases. From the devices in the industrialization lot, ICsense collects statistical data and freezes the production test (ATE) limits. The skew lot is processed to prove the robustness of the ASIC over process variations, and to ensure high yield.


  • JESD47G (Industrial)
  • AEC-Q100 (Automotive)

Extra qualification tests can be carried out depending on the specific environmental operating conditions of the ASIC (“the mission profile”), and/or specific customer requests to ensure long-term ASIC compliance in the field.

Supply Chain Management

ICsense provides full supply chain management, from taking in orders from customers, over managing manufacturing subcontractors and continuous monitoring of product quality, to management of inventory and transportation of final goods to customer’s global warehouses.

ICsense controls the supply chain of your product from order to delivery on time at the location of your preferred manufacturing site. The SCM service includes:

  • Wafer ordering and production follow-up
  • Quality control
  • Logistics/insurance optimisation
  • 分包商管理
  • Cost optimization through test efficiency and yield management
  • Customer return and FA (Failure Analysis)


“The wealth of knowledge and experience demonstrated by ICsense throughout a rather intense qualification process, provided us with the unwavering confidence that we have selected an ideal partner for our ASIC design needs,” said Yuval Cohen, Chief Technology Officer of Audio Pixels. “Additionally, ICsense’s turnkey approach which includes test and manufacturing services, delivers an efficient and cost effective mass-production solution to seamlessly integrate the High-Voltage ASIC driver with our MEMS structure.”
