In January 2018, SII Semiconductor Corporation will change its name to “ABLIC Inc.”.
ABLIC Inc. has inherited the Seiko Instruments philosophy of manufacturing. As technology continues to grow and flourish, we aim to create key, world-changing components such as our semiconductor products featuring low-current consumption, low-voltage operation, and ultra-small package technologies, through following the principles of “small, smart, and simple” innovation.
The new company name ABLIC is a coined word combining ABLE (possible) and IC (short for “integrated circuit”), expressing that semiconductor technology enables possibilities.
In addition, our logo consists of an arrow (), representing growth, combined with a diamond (◆), representing integrated circuits, which together form an “A”, the first letter of the company name. This, as a whole, expresses our corporate vision of striving to help society grow through semiconductor technology.
