EBV Elektronik, RoodMicrotec and Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS have forged an agreement to produce and market Fraunhofer’s IIS ready-to-use chip IP.
EBV has been working on its EBVchips startup support platform for over 12 months. It is a tool that enables EBV to support IC driven startups within the EBVchips program, and to offer marketing and sales services for new IC technologies.
Now Fraunhofer IIS will be able to use EBVchips as marketing and sales platform. This cooperation will be accomplished through a cooperation with RoodMicrotec, the leading independent European company for Semiconductor Supply and Quality Services, which will perform turnkey manufacturing services for the EBVchips.
“We are very delighted about this cooperation between EBV Elektronik, RoodMicrotec and Fraunhofer IIS. Startups in the IC technology area will have the opportunity to benefit from the expertise and knowledge of these three companies in this high-growth sector,” said Frank-Steffen Russ, Director Vertical Markets at EBV Elektronik.
With the news of this cooperation, two new EBVchips are being announced:
RFicient® Basic, Ultra-Low-Power WakeUp Receiver – this IC solution will enable customers to optimize the power consumption for various IoT applications thereby increasing battery lifetime dramatically.
s-net® – this module solution is based on ST Micro’s ‘Spirit’ RF transceiver (S-NET-MOD-868-AM1) and enables customer to build extreme low power nodes in IoT Mesh networks.
