OXFORD, United Kingdom – June 30, 2022 - EnSilica (LON: ENSI), a leading chip maker of mixed signal ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits), has announced the strategic partnership, that will further strengthen its sales networks in the US. The appointment forms part of a long-term growth strategy, with additional regional sales partners to be announced in the coming months.
Founded in 2011, QLS has developed ASIC design-in experience across consumer, industrial, healthcare, broadband wireless and satellite communications sectors. Over the past 11 years, it has successfully grown both SIP (Semiconductor Intellectual Property) and ASIC revenues in North America for its partners. In addition to the Bay Area QLS has sales offices in Los Angeles, Austin, Texas and Boston, Massachusetts to support its customers across North America.
"The ASIC design market is traditionally used by two very different types of organisation: the very established players, such as large industrial and automotive Tier 1s; and start-ups and very niche companies looking to put their ideas into silicon and have real market differentiation.
“We are experienced in working with both types of business. This move helps us to also reach the potential market that lies between these two disparate groups. QLS has a fantastic track record in achieving this - for example with Dialog Semiconductor, before its recent acquisition by Renesas, where they enabled the Dialog to forge even more high value partnerships with customers. We’re obviously delighted to have them onboard.”
Mike Ingster, Founder and President of QLS said: “EnSilica’s deep knowledge of DSP for beamforming and radar along with their mixed signal, RF & mmWave and automotive expertise makes them unique and ideal partners for companies wishing to develop complex products. With our focus on automotive Lidar / Radar, 5G, Broadband Wireless, WiFi and Industrial IoT markets,
I believe they we will have great interest from our customer base and we are really looking to our partnership with EnSilica”
