Open-Silicon partners with customers to provide whatever services and resources are needed to get semiconductor products to market. For some customers, that is a traditional ASIC design netlist/RTL handoff. Others need engineering support for architecture, protoyping, system design, and software to expand their product lines. For yet other customers, the need is for test engineering expertise or a seamless outsourced operations infrastructure. By offering complete semiconductor development solutions, Open-Silicon has the breadth of capability to fit the ever changing needs of each customer.
While the options are limitless, sometimes it helps to present a few handoff models to illustrate the potential:
The benefits of these various models are:
In addition, a custom engagement model can always be put together to take advantage of a customer’s strengths and current resource availability. Some customers may need to leverage existing test equipment, reuse IP they have already licensed, or they may have specific tools requirements. Other customers need more than just silicon, including software drivers and/or printed circuit boards for device demonstration or evaluation. Open-Silicon is happily engaged with those customers too, adding value with a flexible engagement model, experienced professionals, and a “let’s work together to get the job done” mindset. Whatever the model that makes sense, Open-Silicon’s ASIC program managers will provide a single point of contact, simplifying what would otherwise be complex arrangements for customers to manage.
