Our Market

We offer a leading-edge, FPGA-based hardware platform for high performance prototyping and validation of Systems, ASIC, SoC, Algorithms, Software Defined Radio, Cognitive Radio, Electronic Warfare, and HPC.

ASIC & SoC Prototyping

Our prototyping systems and development kits consists of high capacity FPGAs. If you are prototyping an ASIC or SoC, you map your design on to the FPGAs in our system, to enable high speed functional verification. Our newest generation of patent-pending family of product is based on Altera’s Stratix IV FPGAs. Our solution typically run simulations in the range of 50 to 100MHz. Design capacity can scale to 100s of Million usable 2-input NAND gates . We offer the ability to boot operating system, run system diagnostics and application software – all before the design is committed to silicon.

Competitive Advantage

Our platform offers an unmatched price/performance and a scalable solution, as compared to any of our competition. Our products support an extensible, high-performance, Altera HSMC connector interface. You now can expand the solution using a rich set of cost-effective, application-specific, daughter cards (hardware IP) from Altera’s 3rd party suppliers.

Make vs. Buy

Design teams can optimize their resource, schedule and expense by adopting our standards-based solution, instead of a custom, in-house, hardware build. They can instead focus on using our hardware platform to enhance their verification environment.

Our products are fabricated, assembled and tested to the highest quality standards, right here in Silicon Valley. No wonder our repeat customers are often located in quality-conscious Japan. Certain applications related to defense and aerospace mandate US sourcing and manufacturing – we certainly can fill that need with our offering.
