ASMedia teamed up with iSTART to promote POT to high-end SoC design
iSTART-TEK (iSTART, TW-6786), a leading developer in memory testing and repairing technology, declared that the revenue of December 2020 rises to NTD 6.99 million and annual growth rate reaches up to 95.45%. There was a vehement increase in the revenue of 2020, 258.19%, compared with 2019, which is driven by iSTART’s ecosystem that is approval by customers and continues to expand. Further, through cooperation with design service companies and memory IP suppliers, iSTART has accumulated experience in implementing EDA tools and refining complete memory testing and repairing solution.

The increases in company’s visibility, customers’ satisfaction, and the convenience of tool operation drive significant growth of customers number and performances. By means of iSTART’s efficient tools, it can accelerate customer’s products time-to-market. Therefore, ASMedia TECHNOLOGY INC. (ASMedia, TW-5269), a high-speed IC development and design company, recently signed a contract with iSTART.
 
ASMedia is one of the few manufacturers in the industry that has high-speed physical layer developing capabilities and specializes in USB, SATA and PCIe transmission interface design. It adopts some useful functions among iSTART‘s EDA tool, such as Memory Built-in Self Repair (BISR) and Power-on Test, which shortens developing process and helps products early entry into mass production stage. Moreover, clearly training and discussion before using tool, which lets ASMedia spend the shortest time to introduce iSTART’s tool into its SoC design. iSTART also offers customized design according to customer’s requirements, which attracts ASMedia to adopt iSTART tool.
 
The new application, POT, has deepened IC design field. Additionally, customers can optimize chip area and increase yield rate of products with memory repairing function. Compare with IN-HOUSE solution and other competitors’EDA tools, the advantages of iSTART tool are convenience and customization capabilities. How to create a win-win situation is always in iSTART’s mission and purpose. Through this cooperation, iSTART perfectly maintains ASMedia’s spirit of technological innovation, reasonable price, and quality first. iSTART’s EDA tools can also extend the POT function horizontally and penetrate high-tech electronic products.
 
Overall, as the trend of high-performance computing (HPC), the percentage of memory area accounts for 80% of the chip area. Therefore, memory testing and repairing functions have become essential design. START’s EDA tool with its complete functions is the best choice for customers.
