Interestingly, it is much easier to design thousands of ASIC transistors than it is to verify them in a time-efficient manner. This well-known challenge for ASIC designers is often due in part to the slow pace of RTL simulators, usually in the order of magnitude of single-digit Hz. What positions us above the rest is our proficiency in a unique combo including ASIC design, FPGA implementation, and high-end verification.
Design and Test Environment
We carefully examine which part of the design and test environment are mapped into the target system, what remains to run on the host system, and how best to optimize the communication between the two, following Amdahl’s law. We develop customer-made FPGA boards, as well as work closely with Cadence, Synopsys, Mentor, and other vendors.
The Verification Gap
A well-known issue facing your organization’s ASIC designers if often the verification gap. It is difficult to verify millions of transistors, though easy to design them. By providing hardware acceleration and emulation solutions, our customers can add to their portfolio of techniques to ensure advanced designs are completed on time and on budget.
