The new state of the art facility is located in the Plymouth Science Park which is the largest Science & Technology centre in the South West.
“The four-story office and lab complex provides more space for our growing team and will allow us to build on our position as the only dedicated provider of embedded PVT monitoring IP as well as supporting our continued product development and projected growth. We decided to stay within the Science Park due to its excellent facilities and strong on-site science based community”.
“The rapid growth of Moortec in the last two years has meant that we are now operating on a truly global scale with customers in the US, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Russia and Israel”. said Ramsay Allen, VP of Marketing at Moortec.
Moortec provides compelling embedded subsystem IP solutions for Process, Voltage & Temperature (PVT) monitoring, targeting advanced node CMOS technologies from 40nm down to 7nm.
The PVT monitoring subsystem IP is designed to optimise performance in today’s cutting-edge technologies, solving the problems that come about through scaling of devices. Applications include Datacentre & Enterprise, Automotive, Mobile, IoT, Consumer and Telecommunications.
Last year Moortec secured investment from Altitude Partners, the regional private equity fund. Altitude’s investment has assisted the business in developing and strengthening both its engineering and sales team and adding new silicon proven designs to their IP portfolio.
The move will see the creation of several new jobs at the site, building on the existing team of experienced designers and engineers. Moortec’s move confirms PSP as the largest science and technology centre in the south west.
Moortec’s design work can be found in range of applications ranging from consumer electronics like mobile phones and tablets to high performance computing and more recently automotive applications.
Moortec’s sensors have in-built features which are measured in tens of nanometres (a nanometre is one-billionth of a metre). To put this into perspective, a human hair is between 80,000 to 100,000 nanometres wide.
Monitoring the conditions within microchips has become essential in the modern digital industry. The main challenges, faced by many different industries across the globe, can range from performance (for power or speed) through to the reliability of the device.
Moortec’s products successfully overcome these issues and allow circuit designers to produce a higher quality more efficient end product.
