Etron Technology, Inc. (Taiwan GTSM: 5351) is a world-class fabless IC design and product company founded in February 1991, specializing in buffer memory and system-on-chips. Etron pioneered Taiwan 's "National Sub-micron Project" and helped develop Taiwan 's first 8-inch wafer sub-micron technology, building a solid foundation for the DRAM and SRAM industries in Taiwan . As a publicly-traded company headquartered in Taiwan , Etron strives to bridge the borders between the Asia-Pacific region and the international marketplace. It conducts active business with companies in the US , Europe, Japan , as well as other Asian countries.
As a leading manufacturer of buffer memories, Etron offers cutting-edge Known-Good-Die-Memory (KGDM) and Consumer Electronic DRAM (CEDRAM). Etron's full line of Buffer DRAM chips - available in densities ranging from 8Mb to 1Gb - is designed to ensure high processing speeds and low-power consumption for Consumer, Communication, Computer, and Car ( 4C ) applications. Moreover, Etron has developed many advanced system-on-chip (SOC) IC products, including USB3.0 host controller ICs, USB3.0 flash drive controller ICs, and 3D imaging and gesture-sensing integrated webcam controller ICs.
In the new era of the “experience economy”, semiconductor products that support everything from cloud computing to digital convergence are particularly important. Etron Technology's IC products realize the dream of “eye-brain-nerve convergence + thumbs up"! Etron's buffer memory products act like brain memory, its USB3.0 host products are like nerves providing connectivity, and the webcam IC are like eyes supplying vision. Moreover, the flash drive – commonly known as a thumb drive – is now moving from the USB2.0 era to USB3.0. Etron's recently launched USB3.0 device controller ICs have established world records in terms of speed, adding a “thumbs up” to the coming information age of convenient, connected and portable 3C electronics.
Etron has maintained the flexibility, agility and product focus of a fabless IC company by establishing strong partnerships with leading foundries and companies with complementary skills from different specialty segments. It also actively upholds the attentive customer services of a fabless operation. Etron Technology has created a highly competitive product line in terms of both niche buffer memory solutions and next generation webcam controllers. In particular, the combination of increasingly ubiquitous USB3.0 host and device controllers makes more innovative and creative advanced IC products possible, especially in the 3D IC sector, offering a powerful tool to drive any company's growth.
