Sometimes a design team needs additional help for a single point task, and sometimes they need a partner who can provide sweeping services managed to rigorous standards. Whatever the customer’s need, Open-Silicon has the global engineering and an ecosystem of partners to ensure that the best resources, in the right place and time, adress the customer’s problem.
Reinforcing its commitment to customer needs, Open-Silicon has steadily grown its system architecture, RTL design and design verification capabilities worldwide. Also in 2009 the company acquired Silicon Logic Engineering (SLE) in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, to enhance the company’s derivative IC design capabilities. With the acquisition, Open-Silicon increased its front-end capabilities for designing derivative ICs, which are increasingly in demand as semiconductor companies look to maximize the returns on their initial platform IC investments.
Since 1996, the front-end design team at SLE provided the ASIC industry with architecture, RTL design, design verification, and physical design services, and has grown to become a respected industry icon with a reputation as the premier design center for highly complex designs. With an average of more than 20 years of engineering experience on designs up to 50M+ gates, the engineers bring extensive technical knowledge of the computing, networking, telecommunications and military/aerospace industries.
Open-Silicon continues to use an existing network of industry-leading design services partners, combined with the in-house design teams, to offer customers the best fitting design solutions on the market.
