MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - April 23, 2015) - Open Silicon announces a major milestone -- the shipment of its 100 millionth ASIC in Q1 2015. Proving industry-wide adoption of OpenMODEL™, the semiconductor industry's first end-to-end ASIC development solution is based on a revolutionary business model that provides a seamless, low-cost, and low-risk alternative to traditional models.

"With leading edge foundry, various flavors of process technologies, latest packaging technologies and integration of several third party IPs, we have proven our OpenModel approach meets the needs of our customers," said Asim Salim, Open-Silicon's Vice President of Manufacturing Operations.

Since its inception in 2003, Open-Silicon has experienced exceptional industry-wide acceptance, primarily due to its design and operational excellence. This operational excellence has been demonstrated with consistent performance -- very low DPPM (<40 PPM), on time delivery (OTD) >99% and negligible customer returns. Open Silicon's robust Design For Test (DFT) and Design For Manufacturing (DFM) methodology validates the controls and checks instituted in the process for shipping quality products.

"Our low RMA return is a further validation of our excellence in design engineering. This helps control our costs related to RMA and adds to increased customer satisfaction through delivery of reliable products," said Jay Vyas, Open-Silicon's Senior Vice President and CFO.
