Silicon One is an initiative intended to bring focus to making silicon profitable for customers by providing differentiated solutions and technologies that address business challenges facing semiconductor makers today — time to market, product differentiation, cost, power and performance. We are happy to report that we completed three key silicon solutions that are being used today by major customers in each segment: System-on-Chip, Analog/Mixed Signal and Memory.”
