- New service leverages 500+ man-years of expertise in designing and verifying complex chips
- Expanded service offering enables customers to focus limited resources on core competencies
Santa Clara, CA - May 23, 2005 - eInfochips, Inc., today introduced ChipMaestro, a portfolio of domain expertise, IP and services to support ASIC development in the consumer electronics, communications and computer peripherals markets. As a leading provider of ASIC design and verification services, eInfochips has brought together IP cores, verification IP and design and verification expertise to support clients over the entire lifecycle of ICs in these volatile markets. Because verification against industry standards, successful tapeout on complex processes and organized product life management are essential to success in today's ASIC market, ChipMaestro goes far beyond conventional design services.
"ChipMaestro combines several areas of expertise that are unique to eInfochips and then focuses them on specific market segments", said Tapan Joshi, vice president of marketing, eInfochips. "ChipMaestro, incorporates our extensive domain experience, design and verification IP and customized design flow to the needs of specific markets. This makes it easier for customers to entrust their design, verification and sustaining engineering tasks to us."
ChipMaestro was developed to address the four major challenges facing silicon vendors:
Increased complexity of SoCs with multiple 3rd party IPs and /or emerging standards
ChipMaestro combines IP-based design services with eInfochips' experience in IP integration, including domain expertise in industry standard bus interfaces, communication protocols and SAN technologies.
Replacing traditional verification with HVL-based verification using verification IP
ChipMaestro offers Hardware Verification Language (HVL) based verification expertise and a layered, object oriented verification environment. This unique verification methodology provides scalability, modularity, and reusability, reducing verification time and overall development cost.
Integration of cross-functional and multi-locational development teams
ChipMaestro's Amplified Offshoring Model™ follows a clearly defined project management methodology and helps manage all activities throughout the chip development lifecycle for successful tapeout. An onsite engineer acts as the link between the customer and the eInfochips' offshore center. The customer need not worry about an entire team spanning multiple locations.
Scarcity of resources to extend product life cycles
Today a design team's needs don't stop at first silicon. ChipMaestro enables customers to keep existing products competitive in volatile markets without tying down crucial engineers. Feature enhancement, technology/process migration and sustaining-engineering services help extend product lifecycles and efficiently manage design stages. Design modification services to provide incremental changes for existing designs, ensure massive cost savings.
