Design Center Alliance

Progate Group Corporation

PGC (Progate Group Corporation) was founded in 1991. Headquarters is located in Neihu Technology Park Taipei (Taiwan). Being the innovative ASIC turnkey service provider in Taiwan, PGC is a member of TSMC Design Center Alliance (DCA) ASIC Service Partner.

PGC taped-out successfully more than 1000 projects and produced several hundred million ICs in 28 years. These ICs were shipped to hundreds of customers in Europe, USA, Japan, Israel, Russia, Korea, Singapore, China and Taiwan. The applications include 3C products, Industrial Automatic Control, Aerospace, POS, RF, Security, Storage, IoT, AI, MEMS, Networking, Automotive, Factory Automation, PLC, Medical, HPC, GPS, Communication, ADAS, FPGA, Multimedia, Smart meter, ASIC, IP Camera, 5G, Bitcoin Mining, Data Center, Machine Learning, AIoT, Image Processing, Biomedical, Edge Computing, Cloud Server, AR, VR, Drone, SoC, Edge AI, Sensor…etc. PGC establish long-term and stable cooperative relationship with many IP companies worldwide, therefore PGC has accumulated a lot of experiences in IP usage, integration and verification, also offers IP customization for customers. For design service, PGC offers SoC platforms of ARM-core or ANDES-core with peripheral IPs and high-speed interfaces, RTL coding and system integration. Synopsys (ICC2) IC design service flow for TSMC 7nm is fully integrated in PGC design environment.

The major testers for turnkey testing solution and service of PGC are Credence D10, Chroma 3650 and Teradyne J750EX, etc. The turnkey testing solution and service includes testing program development service, chip probing service and IC final testing service at the engineering and mass production stage for customer.

PGC continues making efforts to research and development of ASIC/SoC/Platform. PGC provides Synopsys (ICC2) IC design turnkey service for TSMC 7nm. PGC is a turnkey service provider for all customers who are looking for value-adding partner in advanced technologies.
