Quicklogic 10K

Wafer foundry and geometries: "We currently outsource our wafer manufacturing, primarily to TSMC and Tower. TSMC manufactures our pASIC 3, QuickRAM and certain QuickPCI products using a four-layer metal, 0.35 micron complementary metal oxide semiconductor, or CMOS, process. TSMC also manufactures our Eclipse and other mature products using a five-layer metal, 0.25 micron CMOS process on eight-inch wafers....Tower manufactures our new products, and will manufacture new products currently under development, using a six-layer metal, 0.18 micron CMOS process incorporating our ViaLink technology. We have invested $21.3 million in Tower as part of Tower's efforts to build and equip their wafer fabrication facility."

Assembly and test: "We outsource our product packaging, testing and programming primarily to Amkor Technology, Inc and Unisem (M) Berhard."

Employees: "As of December 28, 2008, we had a total of 88 employees worldwide."
