Since its foundation, Barco Silex has been involved in hundreds of FPGA, ASIC and SoC designs, building up a well-recognised expertise in the development of fully integrated SoC products. Relying on our design experience with ARM architectures, a large range of AMBA/AXI based IPs, together with a strong relationship with Faraday, we can deliver competitive SoC solutions.
Security and especially data encryption inquiries, thanks to our long term relationship with major players of the electronic payment market, have brought us advanced competences in this area. Barco Silex provides a comprehensive range of solutions and highly flexible cryptographic cores for standard algorithms like AES and various Public Key systems.
Image processing in general and video in particular is another key competence of the Barco Silex design team. As a logical outcome of many projects performed in the Barco group, and within several R&D projects, our engineers are experts at implementing real time, high performance image processing algorithms onto dedicated hardware. This is particularly true for image and video compression, where we also offer the best in class JPEG2000 IP cores.
