5 Systems was founded on a vision of excellence, providing solutions in ASIC/FPGA digital front-end and embedded software. Our team’s vast experience enables us to ensure the highest quality from start to finish. We are committed to perfection and transparent cooperation that paves the way for your success.
Every project is different hence requires customized solutions. We offer top notch expertise to reach your goals and objectives in the following areas:
Our digital front-end team has a proven track record in ASIC and FPGA design and verification. Our design and verification experts can look back on myriad of projects in multiple application domains. Thanks to our extensive expertise, your project is in the best hands, be it a single IP or a full blown top-level SoC with multiple CPUs.
Our embedded software group is a team of experienced software engineers who are dedicated to providing high-quality, reliable software solutions for a wide range of embedded devices and platforms. We provide a complete solution from requirements to deployed and verified software. Whether you need custom software development, integration with existing systems, or ongoing support and maintenance, we have the skills and expertise to help.
Digital Front-End Flow
Our Digital Front-End engineers have seen it all. Good and bad. In fact, most of the cases shit. Hence, we decided that we build our own Front-End Flow which is how it meant to be: light-weight, efficient, reliable, easy to use or adopt and most importantly only uses free software that is readily available on all Linux distributions.
If you find that more time is spent in struggling with your own the flow or just considering implementing a new one 5 Systems can give you a jumpstart to the right direction.
VIPs are the reusable building blocks on which verification environments are built. Whereas UVCs are meant to be standardized, the great majority of commercially available VIPs make us want to scratch our heads when looking for traces of the UVM methodology. Stitched and patched over the years because nobody did it properly in the first place. This eventually results in a sheer landslide of issues when moving on to top-level where all the shortcomings add up.
5 Systems’ comprehensive VIP catalog offers industry proven solutions that strictly follow guidelines facilitating seamless integration to behave like a native component to your testbench . Save time and money by providing your team with components they have no difficulties applying.
It is easy to underestimate the effort required of integrating and verifying large SoCs. One of many famous last sentences: It’s all pre-verified, so what could possibly go wrong …
5 Systems has vast knowledge in the field SoC integration, verification and embedded SW. We provide readily available solutions for all top level co-verification challenges: synchronization between software running on a single or multiple CPUs and the test execution of a UVM environment, dynamically handling PAD multiplexing and SystemVerilog Interface mapping, applying constrained random control in software avoiding hard-coded patterns, cross-domain scoreboarding, connectivity, security or power-aware verification, driver/firmware development, etc.
Building on our unparalleled expertise, VIP catalog and embedded software team, you can tap into our truly unique skillset essential for delivering your next SoC on-time.
