FPGA TO ASIC CONVERSION

Faststream Technologies provides significant cost savings, performance enhancement, and product assurance in FPGA to ASIC conversation. Our customers have been able to reduce system costs considerably by successfully substituting their high-cost FPGAs with drop-in ASIC replacements in various applications. In most cases, higher performance, lower power, better thermal performance, and improved radiation immunity can be achieved in the ASIC. We supply a parallel development path for FPGA development. This leverages the inherent flexibility for developing a new generation wireless connectivity of an FPGA during the development phase while accelerating the path to low-cost production with an ASIC.

Our Customer Design Toolkit: 

 

  • Gate and cell-based standard cell, compiled memory, IO, and analog IP for synthesis and simulation.
  • Logic rules checkers.
  • Tester rules checkers.
  • All design kits available via website download.
  • Design-for-test guidelines and requirements.
  • Design kit manuals.
