Graham Curren, Sondrel’s Founder and CEO, said, “With all the uncertainties in the global semiconductor supply chain such as Covid and US export restrictions on certain technologies, we are a reliable partner for big technology companies as we are one of the few Western companies able to deliver these advanced digital chips for their next generation products. These ultra-complex chips have billions of transistors on them that take a year or more to create. A customer commissioning a chip that will cost several million to design has total faith that we will deliver on budget and on time, as we have done for the past twenty years which is why 70% of business over the past ten years has been from existing customers.
“Turning our designs into silicon is a multi-million-pound order from a customer and our track record in the industry gives them that confidence. Until now, Sondrel has been self-funded and so the management team knows how to manage our finances prudently. The money raised by the IPO will now enable us to rapidly ramp up this ASIC business.
“During the design phase, we build up a very close relationship with customers and they trust that we will deliver the chips as we know every aspect of the design so any issues are quickly resolved in-house.”
