Technology is an enabler, but it is finally the passion for excellence that drives business.
Graphene Semiconductors was born out of this desire to drive business excellence, in the technology space. There are scores of semiconductor industry support brands in the market, our differentiation with a clear objective is - to cater for integrated support across the product development life cycle such as silicon design, software and hardware services leading to complete solutions, and of course, providing specialized engineering workforce for all products across industries.
“Our vision is to be the #1 provider of end-to-end Semiconductor services and hence the go-to choice for the top fabrication and fabless companies worldwide.”
Be the premier organization offering comprehensive solutions for product development through an eco-system of three-in-one (TIO) service offerings comprising : Talent Empowerment (T) ; IP enablement (I);Outsourced product development (O)
Deeply rooted core values allow an organisation to grow, and add the strength that comes from experience and skills, everywhere, within Graphene as well as in customer environment.
Our core values are I-CARE where:

Vinay holds engineering degree from Karnataka University and business degree from INSEAD.
Mr. Nandagopal Ananda (Nandu)’s 17 years of experience and expertise in VLSI front end design & verification - IP design, SoC design , Simulation, verification including Functional, Formal, Netlist and Power Aware verification of IPs & SOCs, covers all aspects of Verification from Planning to Closure. His expertise has given immense strength to Graphene’s market standing and help to successfully complete several projects in record time.
Nandu does the Graphene team proud, since he also has many first pass silicon designs to his credit.
Prior to Graphene, Nandu has worked at various engineering positions at QualCore Logic, MindTree Consulting, Sasken and Infosys. One of the key contributions during his career was defining Bluetooth baseband micro-controller (ASIC) & making it BQB compliant in record time. His contribution to this technology enabled his employer make a strong foray into Bluetooth technology.
Pramod brings to Graphene over 20 years of experience in the IC design industry, more specifically in RTL to GDS SoC/ ASIC implementation, EDA tool flow and methodology development and library development.
Prior to Graphene, he has held various senior technical leadership positions with Qualcore, Sasken, Infosys and ARM Embedded Tech.
During his career, he has executed large number of full-chip tape-outs on technologies ranging from 0.25um all the way up to 14nm. He has built expertise across broad range of industry standard tools viz Synopsys (ICC, ICC2), Cadence (Innovus), Magma, Atoptech (Aprisa), Apache and Calibre. He has been a key contributor to multi-vendor tool flow & methodology development for various technology nodes.
Pramod is an engineering graduate from Walchand Institute of Technology, and holds a Master's degree in Industrial Electronics from KREC, Suratkal.
