What Dr. Sherwani brings to the Spirit team is a demonstrated track record of delivering turnkey ASICs to the marketplace, which Spirit will leverage to offer solutions in product design and application-specific products for our customers. This enables our Aerospace and Defense customer base to secure their supply chain, control costs and ensure a life cycle that adapts to their needs.

Dr. Sherwani’s engagement will give Spirit a strong offering and wide solutions in digital, RF and mixed-signal designs with US-based foundry services, assembly and test. Dr. Sherwani has over 300 designs in his portfolio and continues to provide cutting-edge solutions in the ASIC design world. The tools that he brings to the party empower ASIC designers with efficiency and effectiveness to bring leading-edge technology to the forefront for the A&D market. “Time and resources are saved, design errors are mitigated, and the outcome is nothing short of optimized excellence,” says Dr. Sherwani of existing capabilities. “Our in-house fabric and IP portfolio reduces the overall design cost for ASICs, accelerates customer designs and enhances design compatibility for an unparalleled level of performance and flexibility.”
