About us

Sigenics was formed in 2000 to develop silicon devices to aid in biomedical research.  We have grown to become a designer and supplier of “private label” silicon chips to OEM manufacturers of electronic equipment. 

We work with our clients to specify and design the operation of their custom devices, and deliver tested silicon devices in production quantities.  Our clients serve a wide range of markets including biomedical, RFID, test equipment, aerospace, military and industrial controls.

We pride ourselves as an ISO9001 company and we adhere to a stringent set of quality management requirements. Our compliance also means that we are able to provide all engineering paper trails required by FDA and other regulatory associations.

Sigenics respects the intellectual property rights of our clients and all information is kept confidential.

We are headquartered in Chicago IL with additional offices in Irwindale CA.
