ASIC Design Services - leveraging technical expertise to ensure customer success

27 March 2002 News

ASIC Design Services is a design house for ASIC and FPGA devices and a leading supplier of technically complex electronic components. With core skills in the highly specialised field of integrated circuit design, ASIC Design Services assists leading South African OEMs to develop technologically advanced products for the local and international market.

The company offers a design house service, training programs and design audits for ASIC and FPGA designs. Electronic graduate engineers provide design expertise and extensive FAE support for the products the company offers.

Particular expertise has been developed in the following fields: PCI; DES encryption; fault/noise tolerant communications; Power/energy metering; position monitoring; telecommunications; telephony; serial communications buses (including 1553B, I2C and SPI); video/image processing; system integration.

Product development includes PCILite, an easy-to-use PCI interface solution. PCILite greatly simplifies the connection of peripherals to the PCI bus. Because of the simplicity of PCILite, a PCI application can be developed in a very short space of time.

ASIC Design Services represents the following companies:

* Actel Corporation: Programmable ASIC solutions company. Programmable ASICs offer the benefits of both conventional ASICs (single chip and low power and price) and programmable logic devices (faster time to market plus reduced design and inventory risks). For customers requiring discrete programmable logic solutions, Actel's FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) provide design security, are nonvolatile and 'live at power up.' For customers requiring embedded programmable solutions, Actel's VariCore intellectual property cores enable the integration of reprogrammable logic functions in ASICs or ASSPs (application specific standard products) on standard processes.

* Exar Corporation: Exar designs, develops and markets high-performance, high-bandwidth, physical interface and access control solutions for the worldwide communications infrastructure. The company's current IC products for the communications market are designed to respond to the growing demand for high-speed networking equipment based on transmission standards such as T/E carrier, ATM and SONET/SDH.

* Halo Electronics: a leading manufacturer of magnetic components for telecoms and networking applications.

* Innoveda: the leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and services that enhance and accelerate the design and building of advanced electronic systems critical to the delivery of electronic products. Innoveda offers a comprehensive solution for system-level design, board design and electromechanical design.
