Think Silicon S.A., an Applied Materials Company, was founded in 2007 with the vision to provide high performance - low power Graphics IP semiconductor modules.
The company is located in Patras,Greece (HQ and Development Center), Athens, Greece (Development Center), Toronto, Canada (Business Development & Marketing office), San Jose, CA, USA (Sales office), Cologne, Germany (Sales office) and Taipei, Taiwan (Sales office) . Think Silicon is specialized in developing and licensing high performance graphics IP technology for ultra-low power and area limited digital devices for world wide semiconductor technology customers. Signed IP licenses representing the core business model of Think Silicon with future royalty streams.
Currently, Think Silicon is the only no compromise graphics solution for cost sensitive / battery-powered products offering System on Chip optimized GPU & Display Controller “cores”
This allows products which deliver Low System Power, Low System Cost, and High Performance
Moving from the mobile world to the rising IoT/ Wearable era, requirements are changing rapidly. Devices like smartwatches, glasses, patches or even smart clothes are equipped with displays and require high quality graphics. The main challenge in these new devices is the battery life and how to make them to last more than one day without searching for wall plugs and charging stations.
Think Silicon's solutions uniquely enable cost sensitive products to have “smartphone like” graphical user interfaces and/or ”gaming class” graphics speed.
- Wearables: sports bands, smart watches, AR/VR, medical
- Low cost mobile phones: feature phones, low end smartphones
- Other: home automation, home appliances, office equipment
Working closely with our customers we have built a portfolio of silicon proven products.
