Chipworks celebrates 15 years of world class reverse engineering and customer service

    OTTAWA, Sept. 20 /CNW Telbec/ - Chipworks (, the leader
in reverse engineering and analysis of semiconductors and microelectronic
systems is celebrating its 15 anniversary of serving customers around the
    Founded in 1992 as a one-man-shop located above a residential garage,
Chipworks today boasts more than 130 employees. While still headquartered in
Ottawa, the Company has expanded its footprint twice in facilities located on
Richmond Road in Bells Corners. The Company also serves customers in the
microelectronics and semiconductor industries from its offices in Taipei,
Taiwan; Tokyo and Osaka, Japan; Warsaw, Poland; and Seoul, South Korea.
    "Chipworks has grown in tandem with customer need," says Terry Ludlow,
CEO and founder. "Today's highly competitive environment and the whirlwind
pace of technology development mean that windows of opportunity for our
customers and their new devices can open and shut very quickly. Chipworks is a
key part of their product planning, helping them to get inside competing
technology. Chipworks helps our customers learn from other's innovations and
to protect their intellectual property."
    "In 1992 the leading edge of technology was half micron CMOS. Today we're
seeing technology as small as 45 nm, and while it continues to shrink, the
levels of performance and integration are almost beyond what we could have
imagined 15 years ago," adds Terry. "The most complicated devices 15 years ago
had two or three metal layers. Recently we've seen 12 metal layers in a
semiconductor chip. You need very specialized equipment and expertise to get
inside technology that small and that complex."
    Chipworks has invested to meet their customers' needs for objective,
third party analysis of the most advanced and innovative semiconductor devices
and microelectronic systems on the market. The Company has state-of-the-art
lab equipment, and its people - because of the broad range of technology they
analyze - have unparalleled semiconductor expertise and are perceived as
industry gurus.
    "The past 15 years have been a fascinating odyssey for technology and for
Chipworks," says Terry. "We look forward to getting inside the newest
technology today, and to watching how tomorrow's technology will evolve."
