(Business Closed 2014)


Founded in 1988, Advanced Silicon Technology (AST) was a resource for CMOS, Bipolar and Bi-CMOS integrated circuit design and layout services. We specialized in high performance and high density full custom chip design. Our experienced designers, combined with our automated layout generation tools, reduced time to market and cost.

We worked with most major foundries including: TSMC, UMC, AMI, ASMC, XFAB, POLARFAB, JAZZ, ZARLINK, MOSIS, EUROPRACTICE and many others. Our methodology allowed us to produce integrated circuits that were easily adapted to different foundries.

We were located in Southern California, 15 miles south of Los Angeles.
