Hardware design is an essential part of designing an embedded product. The Hardware forms the heart of any embedded system, and a well designed hardware will be the key to build a competitive marketable product.eSilicon Labs’ Hardware Design group offers full turnkey hardware prototyping solutions.
Our hardware expertise can provide our customers with a full range of services including functional specifications and requirement documentation, schematics, layout, prototype manufacturing and testing. At the low end, we have designed embedded control systems that employ 8 bit micro-controllers and system interface control logic either in discrete logic or PLD's & PALs.
At higher end, the designs have included 8/16/32 bit microprocessors from almost all the major vendors; Static Ram, Flash Memory, Communication Interface Devices, Display Controllers. Many designs also incorporate multiple controllers with necessary handshaking & using common resources such as memories etc.
Some products are designed using DSP's from TI & Analog Devices for high speed analog signal processing, Math applications & algorithms.
The control logic for each design has been implemented utilizing an appropriate technology, such as PAL's, CPLDs or FPGA's. We can offer Altera, Actel, Xilinx and Quick-Logic FPGA based designs, including converting discrete logic circuits into FPGAs.
Our design expertise span around mixed signals using extensive analog circuits to process high frequency, low level signals & interfacing the same using ADC's up to 16 bits resolutions. The power supplies required for these designs are also designed in-house.
Designs are implemented using multiplayer boards & using SMT & designed to meet various EMI & EMC requirements for high speed mixed signal circuits.
