Elite Semiconductor Memory Technology Inc.('ESMT'), a Taiwan-based memory IC design company, was founded by Dr. Chao in June 1998.
Our head office is located in Hsinchu Science-Based Industrial Park. Our business activities consist of R&D, manufacturing, marketing, and the provision of design services for a variety of memories and mixed signal products. Our listing went public in the Taiwan Stock Exchange during March of 2002.
We have initially defined ourselves as a provider of various memory ICs. In contrast to main memory, i.e., DRAM used for PCs, servers, and workstations, our DRAM products focus on specialty DRAM memories, which are used in sectors such as PC peripherals, IA products, consumer products, optical devices, and communication devices. We have been positioning ourselves to market a full range density (from 1Mb to 256Mb) and a wide variety of specialty DRAM products (including FPM, EDO, SDRAM, DDR, Mobile SD/DDR and etc.). Furthermore, in 2002 we entered the flash memory business. A number of NOR flash products, ranging from 2Mb to 32Mb with parallel and/or serial interface, are now available for mass production. To serve the rising market demand of System-in-Package (SiP) and Multi-Chip-Package (MCP), ESMT has successfully established the Know-Good-Die (KGD) product line of above products.
In 2005, ESMT acquired Advanic, a Taiwan based analog and mixed signal design company. This extended our product line to mixed signal devices, including audio ADC/DAC and class D amplifier.
As ESMT's core strengths lie in design capability, 70% of our manpower consists of experienced R&D and technical engineers. We have been constantly adopting advanced processing technology to design and manufacture superior cost/performance products to help strengthen our customers' competitiveness in the marketplace.
Equipped with detailed knowledge and experience from design, processing, backend operation, and quality assurance, our team is able to provide our customers with timely and economic products and services. We obtained the ISO-9001 certificate in August 2000, an indication of our commitment to the architecture and implementation of world class quality systems.
Looking forward, by consistent provision of competitive cost/performance memory and mixed signal IC's, we commit our best efforts to become a long term, reliable business partner for our customers.
