SAN FRANCISCO ASIC and system design services provider Silicon Logic Engineering (SLE) has added product development consulting services to its portfolio of semiconductor and system design services, the company said Monday (July 18).
Casting a wide net, the company said the consulting services would provide high-level ASIC and electronic system development guidance to companies that are developing very complex ASICs and systems, government organizations that require analysis or oversight of electronics product design projects, and investment companies and institutions that require expert knowledge of the electronics market and associated product development processes.
SLE (Eau Claire, Wis.) said its services, targeted toward executives, engineering managers and design team leaders at chip and electronics systems companies, are created to help decision makers better manage the risks associated with complex ASIC and systems designs. The company said its consulting services would be provided by a team of experienced staff engineers who are actively involved in advanced ASIC and systems design projects for leading electronics companies worldwide.
"SLE has chosen to expand its core business model of ASIC and system design services to include product development consulting services because of the demand we are receiving from our customers," said Jeff West, founder and president of SLE, in a statement. "With increased competition and the rising costs associated in the design of advanced systems and ASICs, particularly those being designed with 90-nanometer processes, leading electronics developers are finding tremendous value in SLE's experience with bringing these products to market in a timely fashion."
