Our Company

Bruco Integrated Circuits is a fab-less IC design house, creating ground breaking solutions for our world leading customers. We are a flexible company with short lines of communication. Our analogue, RF and mixed-signal application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) are used in a broad range of applications: communications, MEMS, automotive and industrial.

We have created ASICs like

  • eight-input phased-array satellite RF front-ends and the accompanying antenna board
  • tile drivers for 11 million MEMS mirrors on a single 4×2cm die
  • LED driver ASICs able to dim to very low light levels and which are wirelessly controllable
  • automotive IC’s like body controllers, CAN bus transceivers and alternator voltage regulators

These ASICs are examples of our diverse projects requiring the best of our highly skilled experts; not only of their technical abilities but also of their flexibility, cooperation and communication. Our project teams consist of a mix of system, RF, analogue, digital and application engineers.
