A white paper, “Is a Mixed-Signal ASIC the Right Choice”, is available from CSS. This paper explains the basic reasons to consider an ASIC development. In essence, the paper suggests that an ASIC could improve your electronic system performance, reduce its size, reduce recurring costs, improve reliability and protect your intellectual property. However, it take time and money to develop a custom mixed-signal ASIC. The paper indicates what is required in that area, including approximate development cost and time and what production volumes are typically needed to justify the development. You can download a complimentary copy of the white paper on the CSS website home page.
