ASIC Frontend Development

ASIC Design Services: Verification & Prototyping

We help our clients to develop application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) for their projects, focusing on the validation and prototyping phase, which goes after logical implementation.

If you're looking for a contractor for ASIC verification, testing, or driver development services, you have come to the right place. We have a qualified team with extensive experience in ASIC solutions.

Our services

This is the overview of ASIC design services we provide:

  • Hardware blocks of simulation and validationon Zebu, HAPS or custom FPGA dev kits 
  • Testing with CPUs (i.e. RISC-V) 
  • ASIC emulation, virtual, hybrid (based on Zebu & HAPS)
  • Hardware and software validation
  • Software-based verification (ANSI C)
  • Pre & post-silicon validation
  • Custom divers development
  • Pre silicon testing based on UVM

Featured Case-Study. Custom ASIC and FPGA Design

HAPS-80 Prototyping Solution by Synopsys

HAPS-80 Prototyping Solution by Synopsys

The project involved firmware development and testing for custom RISC-V-based ASIC.

Our team was involved in the following activities:

  • BSP and bare-metal drivers for RISC-V CPU development

  • Zero stage and first stage bootloaders

  • Windows driver for PCIe end-point device development (Jungo framework)

  • Implementing bring-up tests for all SoC components with communication over QSPI bridge

  • Simulation on ZeBu

  • Emulation on HAPS-80

Our team took part in the deployment of the concerned RTL design on the Xilinx Virtex US+ platform and interfacing with PHYs (Xilinx transceivers and external PHYs). We interfaced the following blocks designed by Synopsys:

  • PCIe root complex 

  • 10G MAC and 10G PCS 

  • USB 3.0 

The prototyping was implemented on VCU118 and HTG-960 evaluation kits with corresponding mezzanine cards. The simulation was launched on Vivado and VCS.

Micro Case on ASIC Verification

Unpredictable impact deterministic detecting on CPU and parts

Tags: RISC-V, Test, Real-time determenistic

We designed and developed a library for real-time CPU internal tests. The test included internal and peripheral buses, internal CPU blocks, etc. The main idea is to immediately (deterministic time) detect any faults caused by any impact (including electromagnetic pulse).

We are boosting your ASIC development process by implementing C/ASM verification software for IP-blocks on Zebu, HAPS or other FPGA prototyping systems.

Our technology stack covers (but is not limited to) PCIe end-point, AXI-DMA, LPDDR4, QSPI, and RISC-V (SiFive). Feel free to contact us!
