ams AG - global leader in the design and manufacture of high performance analog ICs (integrated circuits)

Process Design Kits

ams’ process design kit “hitkit” provides all the building blocks required to create complex analog mixed-signal designs.

Get impressed by our design kit

ams’ benchmark process design kit “hitkit” (High Performance Interface Tool-Kit) provides all the building blocks required to create complex analog mixed-signal designs using our process technologies. The hitkit includes highly accurate circuit simulation models, a set of fully silicon qualified libraries, IP blocks, verification rule sets and special utilities.

The ams hitkit enables product developers to concentrate on IC design rather than on setting up and mastering the EDA environment. This leads our Partners to:

  • Shorter Time to Market
  • Complete Environment for First Time Right Designs
  • More Efficient Designs (Die Size, Performance, Yield)


The advantages and benefits of the hitkit are:

  • All major EDA tools supported
  • All process technologies supported with latest versions of EDA tools
  • "Plug and Play" for IC designers
  • All devices supported throughout the whole design flow
  • Complete modeling of active and passive devices 
  • Supports complete flow for RF and mixed signal (devices, models, libraries,...)
  • Full mixed-signal library concept: digital, analog, special libraries (for noise sensitive applications)
  • hitkit is fully compliant with our QS9000 quality flow and well tracked with release control, patches and customer interface system
  • hitkit developers provide technical support
