About Us

Emerald Systems, was established in 2000 with our headquarters in Penang. Our vision is to grow in the field of VLSI design and become one of the key players in the VLSI design industry internationally. Our key areas are:

  • IC, PCB and System design services
  • Design consultation
  • Design training
  • EDA solutions and technical support

Currently, we have branch offices in Subang (Selangor), Singapore and Bangkok (Thailand), as well as partners in Indonesia, Vietnam, Phillipines and Brunei.



Emerald Systems was founded by 5 technical R&D designers who have worked in R&D centers of multinational corporations in Silicon Valley (USA), Malaysia and South-East-Asia. The R&D team is technically competent and has strong technical credentials. Our technical experience includes digital, ASIC, mixed-signal and board design for RISC microprocessors, chipsets, microcontrollers, bridge protocols, BIST and IBIS modelling.

As a testament of our expertise, the founders of Emerald Systems are inventors and co-inventors of 14 design patents issued by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). With Emerald Systems strong technical background and unique skills of ASIC, SOC and mixed signal design, Emerald Systems founders have also authored two VLSI design books, both published in US and are available worldwide.
