Differentiating itself from most Taiwanese design service companies that assist clients in wafer fabrication, Microip focuses on the front-end design services, specifically circuit design and architecture verification. Moreover, it has developed a distinctive EDA (Electronic Design Automation) tool.
Despite the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Microip EDA tool achieved significant success in addressing industry pain points. It was adopted by Taiwan’s second-largest IC design company, effectively addressing circuit performance issues. Microip EDA tool for circuit architecture design became a “lifeline” for the leading US mobile chip manufacturer, enabling remote chip architecture design.This success not only brought fame to Microip but also resulted in securing additional critical orders. Within a short span of a year, the company’s scale doubled, reaching a revenue of approximately 100 million NT dollars.
Industry experts note that while front-end design poses significant challenges, Microip has plans to venture into the back-end, exploring additional revenue opportunities. Looking ahead, the growth prospects for Microip remain substantial.”(The above excerpt is from the interview article.)
