Toshiba and Ablic have agreed to cooperate in the area of mixed-signal ICs. In the future, the two companies will develop new products from the combined solution of the two companies' products and plan to implement them in turn starting from July.
The partnership aims to develop new technologies, products and solutions by jointly developing mixed-signal IC related technology collaboration and reference designs. Specifically, it will develop an efficient power control solution by combining a microcomputer and a communication IC manufactured by Toshiba Device & Storage and a power IC manufactured by Ablic.
Currently, Toshiba equipment and storage companies are trying to expand sales by using various product lineups (such as microcomputers, analog ICs and motor drivers) solutions. In addition, Ablic also provides compact, low-power, high-precision analog semiconductors for a variety of consumer products, mobile devices and in-vehicle devices, while also commercializing batteryless technology. With the advancement of the Internet of Things, the field of industrial equipment and medical equipment needs to further reduce power consumption and the miniaturization of semiconductors. Combining the planning and design capabilities of the two companies, the products for achieving high-precision power supply control will be extended to a wider range of customers in the future.
