About Us

Our Story

Founded in 2011 as a spin-off from UCLouvain, located in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, Incize has its roots in one of Europe's most esteemed universities, renowned for its cutting-edge research facilities. The company was officially established as a privately owned entity in March 2014. Over the past decade, we have cultivated strong relationships of trust with our clients and partners, marked by numerous successful collaborations. Our team, comprised of highly skilled members, is driven by a culture of innovation and continuous improvement, consistently striving for excellence and delivering top-notch services to our valued customers.

Our Goals

Incize is your partner in semiconductor characterization and modelling for the design of digital, analog/RF and harsh environment applications. 

Our mission is to enable the highest level of technology advancement (in the RF semiconductor and related fields) at the service of the public, through our industrial value chain.

Our Offering

We specialize in the characterization of active and passive devices and materials for model parameter extraction and PDK development. We have unique know-how in characterization of Si and SOI substrates including high resistivity and trap rich materials. We have deep knowledge in GaN-on-Si substrates and technology. Our competence has been built up during more than a decade long research recognized by the scientific community. We enjoy access to bright minds, high tech clean rooms, a state of the art characterization lab and a modern particle accelerator.

The proposed models for RF technologies are capable of accurately describing the high frequency and high power capabilities of such technologies, including the nonlinear effects related to operation in such regimes (harmonic distortion, intermodulation, crosstalk, etc). Benefiting from its ecosystem (UCLouvain long expertise in the field, state-of-the-art measurement facilities and cleanrooms) Incize is taking fast and robust steps towards its objective of providing precise models that are suitable for industrial EDA tools. Incize uses innovative RF techniques to characterize the active and passive devices leading to a cost-effective and rapid characterization/modelling cycle. Incize RF models constitutes a fundamental layer in the enablement of future RF technologies.

We have experience and infrastructure to designcharacterizesimulate and model:

  • DC, analog and RF performance (DC to 130 GHz)
  • Flicker (1/f) noise
  • RF (thermal) noise
  • Self-heating
  • Harsh environment performance (4 – 600 K)
  • Substrate parasitic effects
  • Nonlinear behavior (harmonic distortion and intermodulation)
  • Low-voltage low-power operation and subthreshold discontinuities
  • Radiation hardness

We support:

  • FET/bipolar transistors of all technology nodes on bulk and SOI platforms
  • HEMT devices on GaN platforms
  • Passive components
  • Substrates (assessment of trap density in substrates and at interfaces, e.g. Si/SiO2, GaN/Si, GaN/SiC, etc.)
  • On-wafer and packaged devices

Through its state-of-the-art services, Incize addresses the needs of

We can design and fabricate test structures required for all types of characterization listed above. Using TCAD simulations we can evaluate and verify existing or new structures before fabrication.

Our Customers

Incize is working actively with 53 customers in 13 countries in EuropeAsia and USA to enable RF technologies through state-of-the-art services in characterization, modeling, simulations and process development. Our customers cover the entire value chain of the RF semiconductor industry including wafer manufacturers, foundries, fables and Integrated Manufacturing and Design (IDM) companies.​
