Accelerating time-to-market and optimally managing entire product lifecycle across multiple chipset platforms

Semiconductors have been instrumental in revolutionizing the creation of new products on the one hand and on the other, ensure its benefits reach to the masses. Today, semiconductors power every product from the common-place to the complex.

Semiconductors have become sophisticated platforms that enable rapid product development that are catalyzing disruption. Semiconductor vendors must devise ways to obtain the expertise to manage complex software that changes much faster than the underlying silicon platforms.

Sasken provides, its customers, the ability to integrate third-party solutions and perform extensive testing of the final product to ensure a zero-defect launch.

Texas Instruments has employed the contract services of Sasken for several years now, and for good reason.  The expertise, positive attitude, and willingness to go the extra mile for the team are a hallmark of all the Sasken contractors. TI has employed many contractors from a variety of companies, but only the relationship with Sasken has stood the test of time.  They are a team that I can rely on to get the job done no matter what the situation.  It has been my pleasure to work with Sasken and I look forward to a long and productive working relationship in the years to come.
