Mistral offers a broad range of Semiconductor support services (Silicon support services) from pre-silicon and board bring-up stage to development platforms and reference designs. Our Semiconductor support services help silicon vendors bring out SOCs and Platforms that harness and demonstrate the real processing power of their silicon chipset and enable faster time-to-market for end customers. Mistral’s range of Semiconductor Support Services help bridge the gap between Silicon device or chip manufacturer and the product developers, providing solutions and enabling faster turnaround for a wide variety of embedded product designs. Mistral offers a full range of cost-effective silicon support services to semiconductor manufacturers.
Semiconductor Support Services
Mistral’s semiconductor support services include design and development of hardware platforms such as Evaluation Modules, Software Development platforms, Reference Designs, System on Modules (SOMs); silicon validation platforms for post-silicon bring-up, chip support and system software development. Our services for SoCs and Platforms cater to a wide range of support needs of silicon companies. Mistral has vast experience in providing a wide range of semiconductor support services for various SOCs from ARM, Texas Instruments, Renesas, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, NXP, Microchip, Infineon (Cypress), Lattice, Xilinx, Intel and others. Our Semiconductor support services help customers explore the features of the processor or SoC, develop system software faster and get their product to market on time. With our expertise and in-depth knowledge of the SoC from the pre-silicon stage, Mistral’s development platforms and reference designs help developers leverage the benefits of the chip, by improving performance, reliability, scalability of design; optimizing cost of embedded devices; accelerating the development cycle and reducing time-to-market to stay ahead of the competition.
Silicon Validation Services
Silicon or SoC Validation is often considered the most critical phase of chip development. It validates various attributes of an SoC such as power sequencing, reset and clocking schemes including boot mechanisms, and the SoC’s functionality. Further to this, the SoC release also has dependencies on power and performance parameters, thermal and electrical parameters, physical stress tests in a given environment. Mistral has more than two decades of experience in collaborating with leading chip manufacturers in developing Test and Validation platforms, assisting them in successfully validating their SoCs.
Mistral has in-depth knowledge of the key components of the pre-and post-silicon validation process enabling chip manufacturers get their chips to production faster. Our SoC validation services are performed under aggressive and flexible schedules to meet the SoC development schedules.
