Engineering Services

We do SoC FPGA & ASIC & Digital Signal Processing

Our team has a hands-on experience for a digital ASIC & FPGA design, and signal processing hard and soft implementation.

We are engaged in highly complex sensor fusion solutions on high speed FPGA multi Gigabit & Multi Channel based (Zynq) HIL-Systems.

Fast and secure communication is our expertise. We know how to implement 802.11ad WiGig, direct multigigabit wireless communication for extreme data quantities with high transfer speed on shorter distances. In parallel to that, we bear a very important knowledge essential in the growing IoT world – Wi-Fi HaLow where significant amount of data is sent on long distances.

Our team-members are experts in custom industrial WiFi based systems, with tailored application driven MACs, robust tailored channel coding and hardwired encryption.

We work on custom SOC digital and AMS designs for sensor data processing.

We have invested significant efforts in algorithm design, and its digital processing hardwired and SW implementation for radar-based sensors.
