How can we help?
01. What markets are served?
Mainly automotive, industrial, medical, and offloading/acceleration.
02. How can I initiate a Design Service project?
Typically we start with a telecon to capture expectations and timeline, then an NDA is agreed and more detailed technical content and requirements are shared. We perform common requirements capture phase or directly quote the project on an hourly basis or fixed price basis.
03. What is the typical range of Design Service projects?
Several weeks to more than a year.
04. What is the typical lead time?
Preferably contact is established 3-6 months ahead of the project. In urgent cases, we can react within 2-4 weeks.
05. What can I expect as expertise?
Requirements capture; design and validation of IP blocks, integration of 3rd-Party IP blocks; porting to newer FPGA-technologies; Zynq7000 and MPSoC based systems; systems architecture; bare metal, RTOS and Embedded Linux software; high-speed interfaces (PCIe, Multi 10G Ethernet, USB, DDR-RAM, …); timing constraints; assessment, correction, and justifications related to synthesis, timing, CDC, implementation, power reports; drivers and host-frontends and UIs.
06. How can we cooperate?
We can work as an extended workbench with the customer, collaborate in development teams, or just deliver according to a specification.
07. Is there also project management and process assurance?
Yes, we offer complete project management, risk management, and process assurance along the project.
08. Are trainers involved in Design Service projects as well?
Yes, there is a strong interaction between trainers and Design Services personnel. Trainers act as team mentors, and they benefit from Design Service teams and their project experience.
