A long company history
SGA has designed and manufactured custom mixed-signal ASICs since 1986. Starting with gate array technology, progressing to analogue arrays, and eventually arriving at today’s mixed-signal full-custom ASIC, our aim to develop and manufacture best possible customized components for our customers has always been our driving factor.
A long-term supplier
In the fast-evolving semiconductor industry, end-of-life (EOL) and last-time-buy (LTB) situations are not uncommon. As an ASIC supplier, SGA takes pride in staying with our customers for the long haul. We have for example successfully managed customer lifecycles for products integrated into transportation infrastructure, where product life cycles will reach at least 20-30 years.
Also, for many customers, we have over the years designed and manufactured several ASIC generations, enabling a successful product roadmap with continued support and improved performance requirements.
Our experienced team
We are proud of the fact that many of our employees have chosen to stay with the company for close to 20 years. Combined with new talents that bring experience and knowledge from other companies in the industry, SGA hosts a world-class team with extensive experience in the design and production of high-end ASICs.
The management team also adds long experience from SGA and industry experience from other companies.
