SoC Design

When developing new System on Chip (SoC) devices our experienced design teams can deliver turn-key design solutions or bespoke consultancy across a wide range of chip technologies. Our disciplined approach, ensures that projects are delivered on-time and include active engagement with our customers throughout the design process. Our proven design methodology and experience using third party IP ensures the consistent delivery of silicon projects are optimised for the primary design challenges including power efficiency, performance, timescales and area.

Customers can work with EnSilica to support their own product development teams by providing access to expert advice on all aspects of the SoC development process from architectural design and specification to final chip production, test and yield management.

Chip Specification

Our SoC specification development services start with our customer’s high level marketing specification to finish with a complete system architecture and set of detailed technical specifications from the top-level to individual modules. The process involves exploration of architectural alternatives as well as analog/digital, hardware/software and cost/performance design decisions.

Digital Design

EnSilica maintains an experienced in-house design team with a wide variety of specialized skills and expertise using the latest design methodologies and tools from Cadence, Mentor, Synopsis and others.

  • Design and Verification: RTL Coding (VHDL, Verilog), IP Integration, Verification and validation (pre and post-layout) using System Verilog, UVM, C and VHDL,
  • Front-End Implementation: Synthesis, Formal verification, Static Timing and Full PVT (Process Voltage Temperature) Analysis.
  • Backend Implementation: Design for testability (DFT), Layout service, ATPG, Place & Route, Timing Closure, Tape-out and GDSII Generation

Analog / Mixed Signal Design

Our expert AMS engineers can specify, develop, test, integrate, deliver and support all aspects of an analog design, including integrating select 3rd party IPs or creating custom low power as well as high speed analog designs.

RF Design

EnSilica offers RF design, development, production, test, and qualification services.  Our expertise spans from high frequency (HF) to Ka-Band frequencies and includes RF components such as: transceivers, transmitters, and receivers and as well as RF subsystems:  upconverters, downconverters, front ends, low noamplifiers, power amplifiers, bidirectional amplifiers and RF filters.  With state-of-the-art design and simulation tools, test and measurement equipment, prototyping equipment, and a full-scale production facility, the company is able to transition concepts to high-performance designs quickly and cost effectively.
