Semiconductor & Storage Products Company


Welcome to Toshiba ASIC & FFSA

Advanced CMOS technology for ASIC & FFSA business including full service supply chain management

Toshiba introduces FFSA (Fit Fast Structured Array) technology, providing an ASIC alternative to FPGA (Field-Programmable-Gate-Array). FFSA supports the rapid creation of high-performance, low-power system-on-chip (SoC) devices through the customisation of only a small number of metal mask layers on pre-designed and pre-manufactured base wafers with an optimized logic (gate array) and block memory structure.

To find out more check out our FFSA page.

With Toshiba you can expect the in-house expertise and support that comes with a global organisation that will get you from design to implementation to manufacturing. Toshiba's technology intensive products will ensure that its customers remain competitive in the market place as the need to produce more sophisticated and higher value added products increases. Toshiba's application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) will provide the defining edge that exceeds expectations.

Toshiba's customers can select from gate arrays, cell-based ICs, embedded arrays, custom system-on-chip (SoC) and FFSA depending on performance and time-to-market objectives.
