ASIC Design for Industrial Applications

We have been designing and producing ASICs for more than 35 years, always ensuring that our customers get innovative and high-quality designs that stand out. This extensive experience enables us to quickly deploy ASIC Design in many application fields for the high-demanding industrial markets.


ASIC design for industry


Industrial challenges answered by ASIC Design


ASIC design is at the heart of the 4th revolution of the industrial market so called industry 4.0. ASICs are a strong catalyst of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), facilitating smart tracking and data logging, automation,  production machinery, surveillance, smart buildings, preventive maintenance in transport and cold-chain logistics.

Smart cities aim at improving urban infrastructure efficiency and the life quality for all: inhabitants, visitors, workers and companies. Detecting pollution peaks, smart lighting, intelligent transport systems, smart power grids... they are all deep challenges that are addressed by IoT.


Thanks to cameras and light sensors, smart and connected devices literally observe their environment and monitor the dynamics. This enables them to carry out a wide range of decisional information and automated tasks that are key for ITS: from the smart management of traffic congestions at streetlights to economically and environmentally responsible lighting management in smart buildings, homes, and neighborhoods.


As part of our expertise, we have developed a low-power, low-resolution image sensor ASIC. It is a smart self-contained multi-sensor chip enabling key functionalities for integrated IoT applications where guaranteed low-resolution images are required e.g., for privacy reasons.

ASIC design security surveillance safety

With the emergence of industry 4.0, today’s manufacturing networks are operating with an increased risk of cyber threats, and need to be robustly protected. On the other side, the deployment of automation, cobots, and specific autonomous manufacturing tasks increase the risk of accident, and safety is a pillar of autonomous manufacturing.
The same is true on a smart city level. Business districts and neighborhoods are made safer and thus more attractive and accessible with surveillance that respects peoples’ privacy by using low-resolution image detection without the option for facial recognition. Safety considerations will in the future also have to include adverse weather events caused by climate change, requiring detection and smart processing of water levels and other parameters, as well as the need for autonomous transportation to connect to the network infrastructure.


As part of our expertise, we have developed an LVDS IP for fast IO communication to read out a fingerprint sensor, analyze the fingerprint, and calculate a fingerprint signature.

ASIC design prodcution

Production Infrastructures are becoming increasingly complex. At the same time, with just-in-time production and varying supply chain demands, there is no leeway for extended downtimes. The solution is predictive maintenance: weak points in production lines can be identified in real-time well before actual failure, and maintenance can be scheduled intelligently to avoid particularly busy or otherwise critical periods.


Presto's analog front-end for optoelectronics coupled with an environmental sensor interface is directing playing into cobots in the factory for automation (automatic vision), process control (analog measurements), and preventive maintenance.

ASIC design logistic and transport

Logistics and the supply chain is one of the industries with the highest potential for efficient NFC and RFID deployment. This is also the industry with the most pressing need for these technologies, taking into account the globalized nature of our supply chains. Devices and smart tags can be used for asset tracking and localization, locally in the factory as well as during road, rail, maritime and airborne transport.


Presto's combo RFID/NFC/UHF IP platform named “Thor” is used for transportation and logistics (e.g. traceability, temperature control, and localization).
