ASIC – SoC

Silex Insight offers complete SoC design development for ASIC. We can handle all steps from the architecture/conception up to the manufacturing depending on customer needs.

Our ASIC design capabilities include complex System-on-Chip design for low power and high performance. Our designs are multi-million gates design (ASIC/SoC/SiP design) including high performance processors. We integrate peripherals and memory interfaces, processors and analog IP.

Together with our partner solutions (Faraday & Andes Technology) we accelerate the development of the ASIC.

We have long experience in many different applications, such as video and image processing, payment, multimedia, navigation systems, automotive and many more.
