ShortLink joins X-Fab’s partner network
Swedish ASIC designer ShortLink has joined the Design & Supply Chain Partner Network of European foundry X-Fab.
ShortLink offers turnkey ASIC development from initial concept through development up to and including mass production supply chain management. Joining the ‘X-Chain’ and IP Portal provides foundry customers access to 17 IP cores includes a 12-bit SAR ADC, a 20-bit Sigma-Delta ADC, a high-voltage DAC, a 400 Volt H-bridge, and configurable voltage regulators.
“We have a track record of many successful ASIC projects in a variety of X-FAB 350 nm and 180 nm process technologies. X-FAB is our go-to supplier for high-voltage projects or those with demanding analogue requirements and is frequently a contender for conventional mixed-signal projects. We are glad that X-FAB values our partnership and has accepted us in the Design & Supply Chain Partner Network”, says August Pansell, Chairman of the board at ShortLink.
“ShortLink has been working on expanding the reach of our silicon IP licensing business model. Our acceptance into the X-FAB IP Portal indicates that the efforts are paying off. This listing will help customers unfamiliar with ShortLink discover our IP cores,” he said.

X-Fab operates six wafer manufacturing plants worldwide, producing wafers using their in-house developed and optimized process technologies for analogue and mixed-signal applications.
“It is of great importance for X-FAB to offer its customers a stable network of partner companies. ShortLink is a great addition to our partner program as they not only bring expertise in mixed-signal IC design and supply chain management but also can offer a broad portfolio of circuit IP blocks.” said Lars Bergmann, X-FAB’s Director Design Support.
