RoodMicrotec: RoodMicrotec and Rohde & Schwarz extend longstanding partnership in ASIC development

RoodMicrotec N.V., a leading independent company for semiconductors supply and quality services, and Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG, a market leader in the fields of measurement technology and communications, today announce the continuation of their longstanding partnership through several new projects in ASIC development.


The two companies have been working together for over 10 years and in this period RoodMicrotec has carried out the test development for various high frequency ASICs used by Rohde & Schwarz in their products. RoodMicrotec performs wafer and component level tests as well as qualifications prior to product launch. For the coming years, further projects of this kind are already scheduled.
"At Rohde & Schwarz, we rely on our own in-house expertise to develop our high-performance ASICs and therefore count on partners who share our high standards. We appreciate the quality RoodMicrotec offers - from quotation to test development, qualification and volume testing", says Bastian Nagel, Senior Director Mixed Signal ASIC Development at Rohde & Schwarz.

RoodMicrotec also appreciates the collaboration with Rohde & Schwarz, especially the respectful interaction and the high level of professional expertise.

Jan de Koning Gans, Managing Director of RoodMicrotec GmbH says: "Our projects with Rohde & Schwarz constantly pose new technical challenges, thus allowing us to broaden our know-how and the quality of our work from project to project."
