How does iSTART-TEK (iSTART, TW-6786), a leading developer of memory testing and repairing technology, create endless possibilities for its ecosystem? iSTART occupies a unique position in the industrial structure as the latter half of the upstream IC design industry chain. iSTART provides EDA tools to IC design companies, design service companies, and wafer foundries to help them shorten IC development time and improve yield rate of SoCs. In summary, iSTART’s unique position in the IC industry allows it to establish heterogeneous integrated development and diversified paths, which will bring new styles to the semiconductor industry ecosystem and enables iSTART to play a leading role.
iSTART recently formed a strategic alliance with PEILUN, a design service company in Shanghai, China, catering to small and medium-sized companies, expanding its ecosystem. With the rapid development of China’s IC design industry in recent years, many small and medium-sized chip companies have been established. That is why the demand for professional division of labor is more urgent than ever before. Additionally, the field of chip research and design often faces talent shortages and management bottlenecks. PEILUN is a solution to solve those pain points mentioned above. Furthermore, through the EDA tools of iSTART, it successfully completed the 3D smart image processing chips with a smart monitoring manufacturer, and quickly repeated calculations to complete the back-end design while meeting various performance indicators. It also completed the communication application processor chips in the communication filed, greatly optimized the power consumption, and finally achieved various performance indicators.
The cooperation between PEILUN and iSTART not only provides PEILUN with provide delivery capabilities and resources comparable to those of leading companies, but also offers a certain degree of flexibility. It helps design companies address design shortcomings and improves design resources, and enhance the efficiency of chip design. Moreover, it reinforces iSTART’s position in the semiconductor industry ecosystem.
