Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

Subsystem IP Overview

The semiconductor industry has done a masterful job of maximizing profits by restructuring the value chain. According to Gartner, Inc., "In the emerging system-on-a-chip (SOC) model, it is necessary to create subsystem functional blocks".

The most recent step in the evolution of the semiconductor value chain is the design of subsystem intellectual property that, if properly designed, can be reused across numerous designs. We focus on markets that have high growth, require modest to low capital to start and that are design intensive.
We have a two-pronged strategy with focus on SOC subsystem IP on one hand and on chips that do not require a great amount of capital to design and manufacture.

SOC Platforms

We are developing three platforms:

1. N3soc-1000: USB-HDMI-Video Platform: This platform can be used as a subsystem IP for applications that require a USB-HDMI adapter such as home theatre, DTV, mobile video appliances and others.
2. N3soc-1010: DVB-HDMI-DTV platform: This platform can be used in STB, DTV or mobile applications.
3. N3soc-2000: Power-management platform: This platform can be used in any low power SOC application. The platform architecture is based on a dedicated processor that manages power for the SOC. It monitors and controls the power consumption of the SOC blocks.
