Sarnoff will design and produce replacements for Integrated Circuits (IC) that are no longer in production by original manufacturers, but required for the operation of military systems.

The Emulation Products and Technology division of Sarnoff has operated under the Generalized Emulation of Microcircuits (GEM) program, developed in partnership with DLA and DSCC, as a supply solution for microcircuits in the Diminishing Manufacturer Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) market.

DLA is developing the next-generation microcircuit emulation capability through the Advanced Microcircuit Emulation (AME) program.

Sarnoff designs and manufactures GEM parts in its onsite DSCC Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) certified semiconductor foundry.
