Intellectual Property is the lifeline of Semiconductors.
All innovation, designs, and manufacturing in the semiconductor industry are heavily based on the delicate balance of the patent system and the protection of trade secrets.
The industry is investing nearly one-fifth of its revenue in Research and Development and a majority of the revenue generated in the industry comes from licensing IP within and outside the industry. IP due diligence and IP research are an existential and integral component for semiconductor companies.
Our engineers use Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), and other state of the art RE techniques to reveal the technology and materials used in semiconductor products and show hard-to-find evidence of use.
