Microchip-based FPGA design services

Promwad came through technical evaluation, after which it became an authorized Microchip Design Partner as a Hardware & Software Services provider for complex areas: FPGA & PLDs, Interface & Connectivity, Power Management, etc.

We help accelerate your embedded designs: connected and secure control solutions, low- and mid-range density Microchip FPGAs-based solutions, solutions based on high-speed communication ICs for fiber optic applications, transceivers and sub-systems, power management solutions, and more.

Microchip PolarFire FPGAs

If you are developing an embedded solution for industrial automation, IoT, or telecom, we suggest using Microchip PolarFire FPGAs. It provides the lowest power at mid-range densities with exceptional security and reliability.

Our engineers have completed a range of projects based on Polarfire, including SoM module designs, API for 3G-SDI video streams capturing/playback, mini PCIe 3G-SDI cards, etc. Find several case-study descriptions below.
