FPGA Design for devices of all vendors

easics works with FPGA devices of all vendors (Intel Xilinx Microsemi , …), including the use of the IP provided by those vendors. easics has experience with

  • embedded software design for ARM , Microblaze and Nios, and using embedded Linux.
  • AI solutions by mapping deep learning algorithms and integrating AI accelerators using nearbAI, vitis AI and Openvino.

easics has developed a robust and reuse-friendly design methodology to build reliable embedded systems. It uses a coding style that leverages the benefits of a synthesis-based implementation flow to code at the highest possible abstraction level, thus protecting your investment in a readable and maintainable code database.

Moreover, this methodology enables the roll-out of a product roadmap, using scalable IP. This methodology has been proven in a number of FPGA designs, for multiple clients such as TOMRA Sorting .

FPGA Design Project Tasks

Depending on your requirements easics’ system architects and design engineers can help you with the following project tasks:

Feasibility study
Functional requirements assessment
System architecture definition
Hardware-software trade-offs
Third-party IP selection and integration
Module level hardware design and verification
Embedded software design
Synthesis from RTL level to gate level
Top level simulation at RTL and netlist
Hardware-software co-verification
Place & Route
Static timing analysis (STA)
Power consumption analysis
Measurements of prototype PCBs (with FPGA) in the lab

easics’ IP Blocks for FPGA Designs

These IP blocks can be licensed for use in your design project:

nearbAI: AI close to the sensors
easics uses its expertise in system-on-chip design to develop small, low-power and affordable AI engines that run locally, close to your sensors.
Fully hardware TCP Offload Engine (TOE)
easics' TCP Offload Engine (TOE) can be used to offload the TCP/IP stack from the CPU and handle it in FPGA or ASIC hardware. This core is an all-hardware configurable IP block. It acts as a TCP server for sending and receiving of TCP/IP data. Because everything is handled in hardware very high throughput and low latency are possible.
DDRx memory controllers
We have very efficient DDRx SDRAM controllers. They excel in high throughput, low latency and versatility. Typical use case: in an FPGA, when the vendor-provided controller cannot be used.
