ASIC Benefits

The digital transformation touches every aspect of our lives. It redefines the world as we know it. Backed by the explosive growth of interconnected devices, all powered through sensors. We at ams OSRAM are creating the cutting edge sensor solutions that are pushing the boundries of innovation and shaping our future.


Small Size

The size of electronics is significantly reduced by using customized ASICs compared to off the shelf discrete components. Our cutting edge technologies like TSV (through silicon via) and advanced packaging solutions (e.g. wafer level chip scale package – WLCSP, system in a package – SIP, chip on flex - CoF) enable our customers to produce very small modules.
