SoC Design Service
The increasing complexity, interface, and functionality of SoCs have brought out much more challenges than the traditional chip implementation. To make the highly-integrated system, SoC designer are requested to be equipped with expertise in wise of IP itself, IP integration, IP verification, and HW/SW co-design of system level instead of chip level only. Furthermore, the narrow market window especially can not allow the schedule delay and the miss-out of timing.
With 20 years of IP development, ASIC, and SoC service dedication, Faraday knows deeply about customers' most-worried issues and can assist SoC designers to overcome these challenges. To ensure customers' successful end-to-end execution, to lower their risk, lessen the effort, and shorten the time-to-market, Faraday has developed the platform based SoC solutions, including SoC design tools, and ready-to-go platforms, which have facilitated many SoC success cases till now, including the SoC projects of networking application with hundreds of million gate-count complexity.
Faraday SoC design service specially comprises the professional consultation by experienced engineers through all design stages, from SoC design engagement, architecture, IP integration, to physical implementation. Involved at the initial specification stage all the way to tape-out, customers can fully rely on Faraday's SoC consultants to provide recommendations on SoC architectural trade-offs, selecting and configuring the right IPs, and to offer guidance during synthesis and timing closure stages to greatly help reduce implementation time.
For the MCU market, Faraday also provides the FPGA platform for low-power SoC design, which encloses ARM Cortex-M0/M3 core - the smallest, lowest power consumption, most energy-efficient ARM processor, and a ready SoC design integrated with various Faraday's own IP controllers.
