Bangalore, India based analog and mixed signal semiconductor chip design company; Cosmic Circuits has shipped 12 Million ICs till November 2011 and expects gross shipments of ASICs to exceed 16 Million ICs by March 2012. This is a good news for Indian ESDM industry, where an Indian company able to ship millions of chips.
Cosmic Circuits says its ICs are used in applications such as tablets, netbooks, cell phones and various other applications. Two main areas of focus are SensorASIC (analog companion chips for sensor applications) and PMASIC (custom power management solutions for portable electronics).
Ganapathy Subramaniam, the CEO of Cosmic Circuits, is projecting his company as one stop solution for all of their analog needs. Cosmic has 5 ICs in production now and expect to have nearly 10 ICs in production by 2012. Cosmic expect to ship more than 25M ICs in 2012 based on forecasts it has received from its customers.
India, where the demand for chips goes in billions both in revenue and shipment, needs Cosmic like companies to balance its trade deficit in electronics hardware.
Its time for VLSI design service companies in India to get into own product development.
