Functions, quality, cost and lead time...
MegaChips offers optimal solutions that resolve issues with customers' products.
MegaChips was established in 1990 as a fabless supplier that concentrated on research and development.It has since focused on technology development with an emphasis on algorithms and architectures while outsourcing manufacturing to contract manufacturers.In 2012, it acquired the fabless ASIC vendor Kawasaki Microelectronics, to strengthen its domestic and overseas design functions. It has thus built a corporate structure to quickly develop LSIs that better satisfy the needs of our customers.
ASIC Product Series
System LSIs based on unique technologies (algorithms and architectures)
MegaChips engineers, with extensive expertise in LSIs and systems, integrate the many different functions required for customer system devices into a single chip, called a system LSI. We offer state-of-the-art system LSIs with compact and power-saving features designed exclusively for specific customers to propose unique and optimal solutions that solve customers' problems.We secure our competitiveness by inventing unique algorithms and architectures, which significantly impact on product performance and price. We own patents and other intellectual property on most of our products.That considerably improves not only the performance of customers' devices but also their cost effectiveness. We provide our services in very close contact with our customers.
Key Examples of Market-Driven Products Featuring our Patented Technologies
Image processing LSI devices for digital cameras with technologies for
- pixel interpolation, color adjustment, noise elimination and other image processing technologies for high-quality, optimized pictures
- enabling processing circuits that support a range of image-capturing sensors
- reducing power consumption required for the high-speed processing of large volumes of data associated with the use of high-resolution sensors
(Ultra high-speed image processing unit (Pixessor™))
MegaChips tailors its LSI development to customer needs by accepting the project at multiple development phases, ranging from project proposals based on requirements or specifications to implementation of design data such as RTL and netlists designed by customers.
