Open-Silicon has announced that it has extended its TSMC Value Chain Aggregator (VCA) program membership to include Israel. Open-Silicon has been a TSMC partner in North America since its founding in 2003.
"We're proud that TSMC has selected Open-Silicon as a VCA member in Israel," said Dr. Naveed Sherwani, president and CEO of Open-Silicon. "Through our collaborative relationship with TSMC we can more easily meet our goal of delivering customer-centric solutions, operational excellence and high customer satisfaction."
"Building on Open-Silicon's track record in Israel, TSMC is pleased to welcome Open-Silicon to the VCA program in Israel where Open-Silicon leverages its value-added services, local presence and design expertise to best serve emerging and system companies. We look forward to extending the VCA service reach with Open-Silicon for Israeli customers," said Maria Marced, President of TSMC Europe BV.
TSMC's VCA program was developed to integrate design enablement building blocks within TSMC's Open Innovation Platform (OIP) and provide specific services at each link in the IC value chain, including IP development, design backend, wafer manufacturing, assembly and testing.
