VLSI Design Services

Team Softnautics is proud to have smart working engineers with expertise in various domains of the chip design cycle. We provide quality engineering services in the area of front-end design, verification, and FPGA prototyping. We have been able to repeat our success with the right combination of skilled resources for architecture, coding, testing, EDA tools, methodologies, project management, and effective customer communication. Having in-house R&D team and expertise in IP-development, we can customize our VLSI design services and assist customers at any stage of the chip-design cycle. Softnautics engineers carry extensive experience in various technology domains and bring value for the overall success of the project with experience in working with multiple customers, managing dependencies between design, verification, back-end, and software teams working in collaboration from different geographical locations. Having expertise in standard protocols like AMBA, USB, PCIe, Ethernet, SATA, etc. and FPGA families from Xilinx, and Intel we are capable of providing value-added services with short ramp-up time.

Our Focus Areas:


Front End Design Services

  • Start from the high-level specification or standard-protocol specification and build implementation level architecture details
  • RTL coding and Lint and CDC: project setup, scripts, report reviews, corrections and waivers
  • Custom IP development, Reusable IP integration, IP-optimization, IP configuration and customization for optimal performance
  • Block-level sanity testing
  • Synthesis and STA

Verification Services

  • Develop/enhance Verification Environment (VE) architecture for standard and specific verification of closer goals
  • Develop / enhance test-plan that’s scalable for functional coverage of low-level standard protocol, chip-level testing, system/application-level testing, h/w-s/w co-sim and h/w validation
  • SystemVerilog / SystemC HVL coding with standard methodologies (UVM / OVM) or work on any legacy test-bench/methodology
  • Develop custom BFM and agents
  • Execute defined test-plan with coverage and assertion-based verification
  • Multi-level regressions based on design update and release schedule
  • Smart scripting for automation: runs log and debug-trace parsing, error reporting
  • Project management for effective progress reporting with verification statistics

FPGA Design Services

  • Feasibility study and prototyping set-up plan based on testing goals: accelerated verification, proof-of-concept, inter-operability testing
  • FPGA selection based on performance and resource needs
  • Off the shelf h/w selection and custom h/w development assistance
  • Test-plan for functional, inter-op, and stress-testing
  • FPGA specific RTL updates, integration with process sub-system
  • Debug mechanism development for quick troubleshooting
  • Synthesis, STA, RTL optimization to meet specific needs for FPGA
  • Working with inbuilt or external logic analyzers for debugging
  • Working with exercisers and inter-op testing
