Barco Silex is the ideal Intellectual Property (IP) partner. Our experienced engineers developed all our IP cores in a bottom-up strategy. In order to provide reliable products, all the IP cores are thoroughly verified and silicon proven.
In addition, Barco Silex provides efficient and customer focused support thanks to the continuous implication of the designers that developed the IPs.
The best suited IP core
These reusable Intellectual Property (IP) cores synthesizes to ASIC and FPGA technologies (Actel, Altera, Xilinx, …).
The ability to customize IP cores is the key to the success of Barco Silex IP products. All of our IPs can be configured to meet customer's specific requirements.
At Barco Silex, we encourage our customers to discuss their specifications. Doing so, we can configure our IP cores to provide the most adapted solution. It is Barco Silex' goal to deliver reusable IP cores that can be integrated seamlessly into the final design.
Barco Silex focuses on the ease of integration. This is also reflected in our simple and flexible licensing models. Our IP licensing allows all parties to focus on key engineering subjects.
All of Barco Silex IP products can be licensed with several options such as:
Netlist or source code license
Single- or multiple-use license
Single- or multiple-platform license
Why Intellectual Property?
In today's digital world, customers expect new products to provide more functionality and better performances at a reduced price. The design complexity is ever increasing while development costs and time-to-market should be reduced.
The re-use of previously designed modules is the only sustainable solution that meets all of these requirements.
Building everything form scratch is a long and risky road to walk alone. Modules and functionalities that already exist can be acquired from external design houses as intellectual property (IP). Re-using third party IP cores is very often the most reliable and cost-effective way to go.
