April 30, 2012 -- Open-Silicon, Inc. 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.
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. In addition, the team utilizes best-in-class design, synthesis and validation flows in offering solutions including integration of the latest generation of high-speed I/O 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, a company can now use Open-Silicon at any point in its 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.
