Rising up to the challenge

After more than 20 years of working on innovative projects and in the constantly developing area of combined hardware and software solutions, Silicon Service has made an important change in its technological field. From ASIC design, developing new generations of graphics cards and Digital Design Verification, we’re now the only testing centre for integrated circuits from the Eastern Europe.

Silicon Service is aiming to conquer new markets, handle projects in it’s own well known way of delivering the best, the fastest and the most reliable service possible. Together with our partners and with a skilled team of professionals we’re confident that Silicon Service is now in a better position than ever.

We are still closely tied to local universities, as our doors are always open to students who come for courses and even become interns in our company. Some of them joined us in this new adventure and we’re developing our skills every day, together with them.
