our unique approach

 

Kapik has a strong track record of first silicon success, delivering reliable, high-quality designs to customers on time and on budget.

Part of our success in meeting customer needs grows out of world-class expertise and track record in mixed-signal and smart analog design. But another critical factor is how we work collaboratively and openly with customers in developing designs. Key elements of our project management methodology include:

Regular customer interactions: Kapik works with you like we’re your staff. We have multiple ways of keeping you up-to-date on our work: Regular meetings. Wikis for each project. Ticketing and source control. These built-in opportunities to look under the hood and provide feedback enable us to see and address potential problems early.

Scripted verification: Our rigorous scripted tests, developed and refined over time, ensure that the systems we’re designing meet your specifications by providing thorough coverage (MC, PVT, settings). Our scripted tests are also reproducible and self-documenting.

Layout-aware schematics: By providing floor-planning up front and device placement at schematic, we’re able to help you manage your budget effectively by addressing electrical issues early in the process, identifying opportunities to enhance performance and minimizing overdesign. This approach also enables outsourcing specific design components.

Partnerships: We work with like-minded companies and can lead your entire silicon development from concept to production – or assist partners in supporting development.

 

finally, we're flexible

We offer a full range of design services and have delivered an array of smart analog and mixed signal projects across industry verticals. We also understand that your specs might change over time and can roll with the punches as your requirements evolve.
