Meet EnSilica at Embedded World 2016, Nuremberg 23-25th Feb 2016

Come and meet EnSilica at Embedded World 2016 , Hall 4, Stand No. 4-546

Embedded World 2016EnSilica will be demonstrating their eSi IoT SoC development board based around the Altera MAX10 FPGA and the eSi-RISC low-power processor IP. It provides a highly flexible IoT development platform which can be cost optimized and integrated into a System in Package (SiP) or System on Chip (SoC).

iot-demo-board-fullThe IoT board includes the following features:

  • Altera MAX10 FPGA
  • Bluetooth Smart and NFC connectivity
  • GPS with built in antenna
  • 9-axis motion, temperature, humidity , light sensors
  • Buzzer and digital microphone
  • Capacitive touch button

The company will also be demonstrating its portfolio of IP solutions, including eSi-RISC, a highly configurable 16/32 bit embedded processor, alongside IP for communications, processor peripherals and encryption.

EnSilica founded in 2001 has a strong track record of success in delivering ASIC and FPGA based solution to semiconductor companies and OEMs worldwide. The company is headquartered in the UK and has offices in India and the USA.  Specialist in low-power ASIC design and complex FPGA-based embedded systems. EnSilica provide full turnkey ASIC development and supply of mixed signal and digital ASIC from 180nm to 28nm for mobile, IoT, smart sensing and industrial applications.

About Embedded World 2016

From 23 – 25 February 2016 at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre the focus will be again on all things embedded systems: the embedded community comes together here in annual rotation at the embedded world Exhibition & Conference. As a leading international world fair with the focus exclusively on embedded technologies, it reflects the trends in the sector; around 900 exhibitors are presenting state-of-the-art covering all aspects of embedded systems.

EnSilica present at DVCon Europe, 2015

DVCon2015_168_104The Design and Verification Conference (DVCon) Europe , held in Munich on 11/12th November 2015, is an important event for the European electronics industry – focusing on the practical use of EDA tools, standards, languages and methodologies for the design and verification of electronic systems and integrated circuits. This year, Paul Kaunds, Verification Consultant at EnSilica was selected to present at the conference.

One of the key themes of the conference was ‘Advanced Verification and Validation’ and Paul presented a 90min tutorial on the ‘Application of Design Patterns to Accelerate Development of Reusable, Configurable and portable UVCs’.

 The tutorial provided a background to the use of Design Patterns in areas such as software development, their influence on functional verification methodologies like UVM and how the same ideas can be used in building new UVCs which are inherently more reusable and portable – providing productivity and quality improvements for future projects.

 The slides from the presentation can be found here

 If you are interested in any of the ideas presented in the tutorial or would like to discuss any other verification challenges where EnSilica might be able to help, please contact us at


EnSilica are exhibiting at DAC2015 in San Francisco

 7-11th June 2015

The annual Design Automation Conference is one of the industry’s premier events and EnSilica will be exhibiting for the fifth successive year.

For those who are attending, do drop by our stand (2228) where we will be showcasing some of our customers products based on EnSilica IP. We can also provide an update on the expansion of our  ASIC  development, IP and design services offering :

  • Full turn-key ASIC development capability from specification through to GDSII, with Physical Design expertise down to 28nm.
  • Addition of a highly experienced analog design /layout team with expertise in high speed PHY IP
  • Latest addition to our  eSi-RISC family of processors – the eSi-3260 targeting IoT and ‘always-on’ applications
  • Extension of our eSi-Crypto family of IP to now include ECC, RSA and SHA
  • eSi-Module – a zynq based module available now for immediate delivery
  • Off-shore design services though our Bangalore design centre with focus on advanced verification
  • Embedded electronic design service – bringing together our expertise in FPGA, hardware design and embedded software to deliver highly optimised electronic products.

If you cannot attend DAC 2015, but would like to learn more about our new IP and services, or you have a specific IC design opportunity you would like to discuss with our technical team, then visit our website for more information or email us at
