Company Information

When GarField Microelectronics Ltd, one of the UK's leading independent digital Integrated Circuit implementation and silicon supply companies bought Matrics Ltd, one of the UK's most respected analogue design houses, what may be the best Integrated Circuit design resource in the UK was created. With extensive experience in both the analogue and digital domains and the ability to provide tested silicon, we could be the lowest risk option for getting working silicon on time and within budget.

A key service offered by the GarField/Matrics organisation is in the sourcing and supply of the final devices from the wide range of designs successfully undertaken by the company in the last 24 years.

GarField/Matrics is based in Stroud Gloucestershire and we are ideally situated for access to the M4 and M5 motorways. Stroud Railway Station has rail connections to London Paddington and to other major UK cities and towns. GarField/Matrics is easily reached from London Heathrow Airport, Birmingham Airport and Bristol Airport.
