Architecting the Future IP platforms with supply chains
Last year, Sondrel launched its Architecting the Future series covering the SFA 100 to the SFA 350A. These pre-packaged, System on chip IP architectures provide a fast track for designing a new chip as all that is needed is to select the most suitable foundry and process, third-party IP and to integrate any of the customer’s own IP to create a custom solution.
At the beginning of a new custom chip development, the most important question is who to partner with to reduce risk and time to market (TTM). Being first to market with a new, innovative chip could be worth millions if it establishes a market-leading position.
Such a consideration of TTM also reduces the risk by being off-the-shelf. Sondrel’s supply chain manufacturing service has further reduced risk and TTM as it has created a series of pre-packaged supply chains specifically tailored for each of its Architecting the Future platforms.
As Ian Walsh, Sondrel’s VP ASIC Business Development explained: “A new chip is a major decision for any company and it is thus vital to mitigate risks. We reduce risks with our pre-packaged SFA designs and now reduce risks further with our pre-packaged supply chain routes for each. Unknowns are virtually removed giving a clearly defined and well-trodden path from design to shipping silicon making us the partner of choice to deliver on time and on budget.”
