Last summer, Russ Henke, EDACafe’s then contributor, called Uniquify a uniquely Silicon Valley company in a profile called, “A Visit to Uniquify,” (found here: http://tiny.cc/4jjlxw). Having had a chance to work with the Uniquify team and get to know many of them, I can attest to the uniqueness that you’ll only find in Silicon Valley.
Since the original EDACafe profile, Uniquify relocated its corporate headquarters from a cramped space in Santa Clara, Calif., to a handsome and large building in San Jose, close to Highway 880, tripling the office space.
The office may have moved, but the goal to create chips easier and faster with better results remains. A comprehensive design services platform called ideas2silicon introduced last year offers project teams faster turnaround, lower costs and a transparent business model to provide rapid assembly of IP blocks into a base system. Uniquify’s successfully completed various design services, manufacturing services and IP projects through ideas2silicon that range from leading-edge designs at 28nm, but also 40, 65 and 90nm. Satisfied customers include Tehuti Networks, Ikanos, LG and Pixelworks. Many of the projects had low power as a goal, and end products are everything from networking, consumer electronics, image and media processing to digital TV.
