MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- zGlue, the first semiconductor/SaaS company to deliver a breakthrough chip and system design methodology for the Internet of Things (IoT) era, today announced it has selected Advanced Semiconductor Engineering, Inc. (ASE), the world's leading provider of semiconductor manufacturing services in assembly and test, as its strategic manufacturing partner. zGlue provides access to industry-standard IoT building blocks for design and manufacturing of innovative IoT products with 10X better integration, low cost, system flexibility, minimal risk and fast time to market.
ASE is a key manufacturing partner for the revolutionary zGlue Integrated Platform (ZiP). ZiP enables fully customized products for the high-growth consumer and high-volume industrial IoT markets by providing seamless integration of both hardware and software in a modular 3D IC-based platform. ASE provides multiple options for assembling zGlue-certified chiplets, which are automatically interconnected through zGlue Smart Fabric™, a silicon interposer platform, onto the ZiP hardware to rapidly create an IoT system.
"ASE is committed to supporting innovative technologies and companies that add value to the semiconductor and advanced packaging industries," said Mike Hung, senior vice president, ASE. "zGlue has demonstrated an innovative way of addressing important pain points for this space. We are pleased to support them as their packaging, assembly and test partner as they bring their technology and products to the mass market."
Noted Ming Zhang, zGlue co-founder and CEO, "Our stellar engineering team has come up with an elegant approach that we believe will enable architecting, designing and manufacturing a new and better generation of semiconductor products for the next several decades. For this vision to become a reality, we must have a strong ecosystem of partners such as ASE. Their proven manufacturing expertise will continue to be an important asset as we move forward."
Founded in 2014, zGlue makes building complex semiconductor products fast, easy and fun. Its IoT platform allows chips to be fully customized, eliminating the difficulties, high costs, long time to design and scale up, and risks associated with traditional semiconductor design. As the IoT market continues to grow at a breakneck pace, traditional monolithic SoC integration cannot meet the intense time-to-market and cost demands. zGlue tackles these challenges with its proprietary 3D-IC-based F.A.S.T. (form factor, adaptability, scalability and time to market) technology platform, manufacturing partners and chiplet ecosystem. The company's innovative approach to speeding product development for both the high-growth consumer and high-volume Industrial IoT markets delivers an order-of-magnitude improvement in miniaturization, affordability, flexibility and scalability of custom IoT devices.
