EquipIC Supply Chain is headquartered in The Netherlands and operating internationally, with branch offices in France and the USA. 

We are an ISO9001 certified company.

We have been active since 2002 and are a stable, family owned enterprise

EquipIC counts small and big (fabless) enterprises, systemhouses, technical universities & research labs among its very diversified customer base.

We engage in feasibility studies,  offer IC design support and foundry access and manufacturing services from prototyping and MPW up to volume production in legacy or leading edge technology in combination with assembly and test solutions.

We do have strong in-house expertise related to all aspects of the IC design & manufacturing flow and the supply chain. EquipIC’s own organization is kept lean and mean, as our network approach eliminates the need to keep every offered service in-house. We consider ourselves to be a down-to-earth, engineering driven company, looking for solutions in close communication with our customers and network of suppliers.

Our solid in-house skills ensure EquipIC will always be in the driver’s seat and get the best and competitive results from our trusted network of partners and suppliers, who are all committed to upholding the quality of their products, materials and services. Our short internal communication lines guarantee fast and transparent feedback.

We can provide customized test & assembly solutions and support low and high volume projects,  addressing different segments, ranging from consumer to industrial and defense including AI & aeronautics, to automotive and medical markets. 

EquipIC understands the quality requirements of each of these segments and does support long lifetime products.

We can even source hard to find old parts to prolong your product’s lifetime. We put test programs in place to guarantee authenticity and quality of the replacement product.

Alternatively we can redesign  your old part for the modern world in full accordance with the original product’s datasheets, without any need for PCB and software changes.

 It’s difficult for organizations or enterprises to deal with multiple vendors with respect to product development, planning, manufacturing, test, assembly and transportation. These procedures are often time consuming, distracting from a company’s strategic, technical and commercial focus.

EquipIC takes away this burden and is your sole interface, while we manage the complete supply chain for  you. 

EQUIPIC SUPPLY CHAIN  =

  • Technology, design & manufacturing flexibility
  • Sophisticated test quality & packaging ingenuity
  • Logistical excellence

enabling you to focus on your core competencies.
