DATE 2021 became a virtual conference due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic (click here for more details)

Taking into consideration the continued erratic development of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying restrictions of worldwide travelling as well as the safety and health of the DATE community, the Organizing Committees decided to host DATE 2021 as a virtual conference in early February 2021. Unfortunately, the current situation does not allow a face-to-face conference in Grenoble, France.

The Organizing Committees are working intensively to create a virtual conference that gives as much of a real conference atmosphere as possible.

Sofics provides analog I/O’s and custom circuits for the trade off between high robustness and high-performance IC design, optimized for your application.

Whether it is reducing leakage below nA range, lowering I/O capacitance to less than 10fF, enabling the use of core transistors in the I/O for highest speed or sustaining operating or signal voltage well above the power supply: every application poses different challenges. From our niche expertise of protecting ICs against a variety of reliability specifications, we can distill the most optimized strategies within the operating range of your IC, treating every each case differently, with silicon proven solutions in almost every mainstream and advanced technology, including FinFETs down to 5nm, SOI down to 22nm, HV/BCD up to 100V and other variants of CMOS processes, in a wide range of foundries: TSMC, GlobalFoundries, SMIC, UMC and many others.

Sofics’ technology is proven in more than 3000 IC designs with more than 80 different customers.

Sofics ( has more than 20 years, and more than 130 man-years experience in protecting ICs against a variety of reliability specifications.  Based in Aalter, Belgium, we serve customers worldwide. Our technology is patented in more than 35 patent families. Sofics is foundry independent, but part of TSMC’s DCA and IP alliance since 2009.
