Every 1.5 seconds a new car leaves the production line with Swindon technology onboard.

Automotive ASIC Design and Supply

Swindon is a global leader in the design and supply of automotive grade ASICs and MEMS pressure sensors, from their world leading TPMS pressure sensing devices through to their Battery Management System (BMS) solutions for the emerging electric vehicle market. AEC Q100 and ISO26262 is all about ensuring stringent quality and reliability.

Market leading, higher performance, smaller size, lower cost, lower power consumption and longevity combined resulting in a world class solution and supply chain.

Global Leader

Swindon is the global leader, supplying over 50% of the total demand for Tyre Pressure Monitoring systems (TMPS) ASICs. Swindon’s mixed signal ASICs combine high performance and low-cost whilst still providing the stringent quality and reliability criteria required in the automotive environment.

Sensor Interfaces

We will design and supply your ASIC to meet exactly your specification. Whether it is pressure, position or proximity sensing, your ASIC will deliver you the performance without compromising on power consumption, size and cost.  Sensors can include optical, ultrasonic, magnetic,  resistive or capacitive – we can develop you asolution for all sensor types.

Emerging Technologies

Electric and autonomous vehicles are set to
become major consumers of electronic devices. The drive to engineer unprecedented levels of safety, reliability, economy, performance, information and entertainment has meant a huge increase in the requirement for mixed signal ASICs to accommodate sensing, conditioning and communicating capabilities in a single device.

The TPMS chip market is led by Swindon Silicon Systems who designs and supplies Sensata Technologies/ Schrader with all of its semiconductor needs in this market.

Tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) have been widely deployed to address safety and environmental issues on all types of vehicles across the globe.

Full Custom IC Solution

Swindon provides full ASIC development services from initial specifications to the supply of tested and calibrated ASICs including analogue and mixed signal design, test, packaging, component production, logistics and supply chain management. Swindon also provides full evaluation, characterisation, automotive qualification (AEC Q100) and full failure analysis in accordance with defined industry standards such as TS 16949.

This full turnkey solution enables our customers to be able to focus on their core competencies whilst Swindon designs, manufactures, tests and supplies their custom ASIC solution to anywhere in the world.

Electric vehicles make differing demands on the electronic components industry

Sensors throughout the vehicle are on the increase. Battery management to tyre pressure monitors, our custom device design expertise is already being applied in a variety of applications.
