FS2 strongly advocates considering development tool requirements early in your System-on-Chip design process. This necessitates a clear understanding of your team's and possibly target market’s development requirements once first silicon is available. Too often, people come to us when the silicon is close to tape out asking for assistance when their debugging problems loom large.

FS2 staff has catered to the needs of many embedded customers over the last 15 years and can help tune your development tool solutions into a competitive advantage when you are competing for design wins. We take into account your complete tool environment, such as source-level debugger, compilers, RTOS, network protocol analysis, and target connection requirements.

The FS2 design teams are account focused, guaranteeing that the end product is specific to your market requirements. Our design services are broad in scope, spanning from VHDL or Verilog IP development, debuggers, compilers, RTOS, and more. We have developed tools for applications ranging from medical electronics, office equipment, networking processors, Internet appliances and many more.

A typical project starts with an initial overview meeting. There is no charge for FS2 to review your needs, schedules and resources. If you decide to move forward, FS2 will prepare a Statement of Work - a complete review of our understanding of your market, your tool and product requirements. This document will give you a complete plan for your hardware and software debug requirements, with schedules, costs, and deliverables at every step of the process.

First Silicon Solutions generally charges fees for Non-Recurring Engineering (NRE) which include IP deliverables, delivery of beta and production quality debugging systems, and required software and documentation. If desired, FS2 can productize your development tools and provide an established sales and support channel for your customers. We make this process incredibly easy and cost effective, so you can focus your energies on developing SoC designs. If you would like to learn more, Contact Us
