AnSem - Innovation on chip


Communications From its inception, AnSem has served the wired and wireless communication markets where we have overseen the move from the art of the possible to the art of the optimal with analog communications being replaced by ever higher performance digital links.

In the Wireless sector we have always understood that being untethered means battery powered and battery powered means that lowest power consumption is paramount. This is why AnSem's Radio technologies offer radio performance down 10 nJ per bit. In the wired communications sector, whether it be DSL moving information over long cables from kbps to mbps, SerDes moving peripheral interconnect from Mbps to Gbps or Powerline communications moving data over power cables, AnSem is there with optimized analog front ends down to a staggering 5pJ per bit transmitted!

We have developed multiple ASICs complying with the stringent standards in these commoditized markets. But more often, AnSem is able to provide customized low power solutions for its customer's proprietary communication needs.
