Innovasic Semiconductor, a leader in replacement integrated circuit (IC) solutions, announced that it has now shipped over one million microcontrollers.
“Innovasic has rapidly evolved to providing innovative microcontroller solutions for the embedded industrial market as well as supporting replacement ICs to the market in general” said Datar Lalvani, VP of Marketing for Innovasic. “Over the last few years, we have developed 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit microcontroller architectures. We have used our design expertise and market knowledge to develop a family of 32-bit real-time microcontrollers – fido (Flexible Input Deterministic Output) – that we believe specifically addresses the needs of the industrial control market.”
Innovasic’s microcontrollers are used in a wide variety of industrial applications – from engine control modules and anti-lock brake systems to medical instruments. The first product off the fido(TM) family of microcontrollers, the fido1100, was introduced last year.
Innovasic is a fabless semiconductor company, providing replacement ICs and embedded solutions for the industrial and long life-cycle markets. The company provides solutions that directly address obsolescence problems as well as other issues of concern to industrial customers such as inventory management, hard real-time/safety-critical performance and power consumption.
The company has established itself as an approved vendor of extended life replacement ICs to many of the leading industrial equipment manufacturers, enabling them to continue to build products that rely on ICs discontinued by the original vendor. Innovasic has developed a unique process and technology that allows the rapid design of a pin-compatible and 100 percent fully function-compatible replacement for embedded microcontrollers, peripheral ICs and analog/mixed signal interface chips.
