MILPITAS, Calif., April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/-- Open-Silicon, Inc., a leading semiconductor design and manufacturing company, announced today that the company has further expanded its comprehensive solutions offering for semiconductor and system companies to include architectural analysis and modeling, pre-silicon prototyping, embedded software, co-silicon system design and test, and post-silicon validation. With the expanded solutions offering, Open-Silicon has enabled its customers to benefit from greater customization and deeper partnership throughout the product development process.
Today's companies continuously seek solutions that will get them to market faster. Towards this end, Open-Silicon has added capabilities to those already within its ARM® Center of Excellence. These additional product development capabilities include embedded Linux on multi-core ARM Cortex™-A9, symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) and asymmetric multiprocessing (AMP) using Linux and RTOS. Additionally, the team utilizes best-in-class design, synthesis and validation flows in offering solutions including integration of the latest generation of high-speed IO peripherals, integration of open-source networking and communication stacks, multi-FPGA partitioning and synthesis, early software development using prototypes, and platform- and system-level silicon validation. As a result, companies can now use Open-Silicon at any point in their design cycle for collaborative engineering, resulting in a quicker time to market.
The Pune design center, located in Pune's IT Park, has recently expanded its office space to allow for increased staffing and expansion of the critical system integration and validation lab. This lab, equipped with state-of-the-art FPGA prototyping platforms and project-specific development boards, allows rapid development of complex custom solutions. Also in the Pune design center is a system test and debug facility, complete with a supportive semiconductor design environment.
"The addition of product design capabilities including emulation, validation and embedded software development to our traditional strength in ASIC design and manufacturing means that our customers can now find complete semiconductor solutions under one roof. This consolidation of capabilities under one organization relieves a lot of the hand-holding needed when using various vendors, and through familiarity with a design enables faster time to market," said Shrikrishna Gokhale, chief operating officer and managing director of Open-Silicon, India. "Our goal remains to provide tailor-made solutions to our customers that will give them a competitive edge."
