ASIC – SoC

Barco Silex offers complete SoC design development for ASIC and structured ASIC. We handle all steps from the conception up to the manufacturing or some of them depending on customer needs.

Our ASIC design capabilities include complex System-on-Chip design for low power and high performance. We can handle multi-million gates design (ASIC/SoC/SiP design) typically in AMBA environment (AHB/AXI) with ARM or other high performance processors.

In addition, our video and security IP portfolio, together with our partners solutions accelerate the development of the ASIC for a short time to market. We often integrate peripheral and memory interfaces, processors and analog IP.

Barco Silex has strong experience in many different applications, such as video and image processing, payment, multimedia, navigation systems.
