Corporate Overview
PGC (Progate Group Corporation) was founded in 1991. Headquarter is located in Neihu Technology Park Taipei Taiwan. Being the innovative ASIC turnkey service provider in Taiwan, PGC taped-out successfully more than 1000 projects and produced several hundred million ICs in 27 years. PGC is a member of TSMC Design Center Alliance (DCA) ASIC Service Partner. These ICs were shipped to hundreds of customers in Europe, USA, Japan, Israel, Russia, Korea, Singapore, China and Taiwan. The applications include 3C products, Industrial Automatic Control, Auto Electronic Products, Aerospace, POS, RF, Security, Storage, IoT, IIoT, AI, AIoT, MEMS, Networking, Consumers, Automative, Factory Automation, PLC, Medical, MFP, HPC, GPS, Communication, ADAS, FPGA, Multimedia, Smart meter, ASIC, IP Camera, 5G¡Ketc. PGC establish long-term and stable cooperative relationship with many IP companies worldwide, therefore PGC has accumulated a lot of experiences in IP usage, integration and verification, also offers IP customization for customers. For design service, PGC offers SoC platforms of ARM-core or ANDES-core with peripheral IPs and high-speed interfaces, RTL coding and system integration. Synopsys (ICC2) Design Flow For TSMC 7nm is fully integrated in PGC design environment.

PGC always exerts our endeavor to provide the best quality and stability of services by allying with tier one technology providers, establishing in-house testing facilities and building experienced engineering capabilities. Class-1000 clean room was built-up in-house equipped with ATE Chroma-3650 (J750), Credence D10 and mandatory equipments to enable products testing development and production. The facility is able to offer testing program development, engineering sample verification, failure analysis, C/P, F/T ¡K etc. C/P strong capacity is up to 8000 pieces wafers a month and F/T strong capacity is 8 Million pieces ICs a month.

PGC continues making efforts to research and development of ASIC/SoC/Platform. In 2008, PGC completed several ICs targeting 90nm manufacturing technology. In 2010, there were some Platform ASICs design-win and some 65nm projects tape-out. Starting from 2011 Q2, PGC provided 40nm ASIC design service and taped out several 40nm projects since then. In 2016, we are ready for 28nm and 16nm design service. PGC is a turnkey service provider for all customers who are looking for value-adding partner in advanced technologies.
