Founded in 2002, Cactus Semiconductor has been providing customers with optimized solutions for custom analog and mixed signal integrated circuit (IC) requirements, offering full turn-key product design and production. The company’s employees have strong expertise in medical integrated circuits, power management circuits, and analog and mixed signal ASICs.
Today’s medical ASICs are used in implantable medical devices aimed at providing therapy for a number of conditions, from pain management to epilepsy and psychological disorders. Medical integrated circuits (ICs) can be used in devices programmed to deliver drugs on a more effective schedule to effectively treat and relieve patient’s conditions with fewer side effects. And because implantable devices need to be small, lightweight, and use less power, medical ICs help meet the necessary requirements for medical device integration.
In 2018, Cactus was acquired by Cirtec Medical, a leading provider of design and contract manufacturing services for complex medical devices including active implants and minimally invasive surgical devices.
