We provide front-end and back-end services for Digital Design, from design specifications definitions to tape-out, by mixing software and programming skills with hardware and digital circuits knowledge.
More than ever, the major tech innovators want to map out their own futures via innovative chip development, instead of trying to adapt existing infrastructure and hardware to new and unforeseen purposes. However, with great innovation comes the need for assiduous attention to detail, and a pioneering attitude rare to most tech work-spaces.
Our Chip Design Services
We have extensive knowledge in multiple areas of chip development workflow and we can provide:
