About us

Tusk IC is a leading IC design house for the millimeter-wave (mmWave) spectrum, offering extensive research and product design experience in the field of mmWave IC design compliant with ISO 9001:2015.

We speed up the development cycle and reduce time-to-market of our clients by focusing on:

  • Design solutions for silicon mmWave circuits from 10GHz to 300GHz+ and beyond.
  • Extensive experience from transistor-level to packaging interface in advanced CMOS/SOI/SiGe process nodes.
  • Measurements and prototype validation up to 1.1THz

From client Excel-sheet to commercial products, we are there to provide our expertise in the full chip-development cycle for the next generation of leading mmWave products. We are proficient with leading EDA-tools for schematic&Layout, passives/EM, packaging&antennas, multi-site working and database management.

Tusk IC was founded in January 2018 as a spin-off from the world-renowned KU Leuven ESAT-MICAS research group. The four founders obtained their PhD degrees at this group, specializing in millimeter-wave CMOS integrated circuits and systems.
