IP and Verification IP Cores for Datacenter, Automotive Ethernet, Communications Infrastructure and Deep Learning Acceleration

Rianta Solutions provides specialized ASIC/SoC Intellectual Property(IP) and Engineering Services for Datacenter Infrastructure, Communications Infrastructure, and Automotive Networking.

We provide more than Design Services - Our typical engagement with ASIC/SoC customers is a project level offering that includes Engineering Design, Verification Services and Physical Design along with ASIC/SoC IP Core and Verification IP(VIP) Products . We can also provide a full UVM verification environment that can be integrated with the customer’s sub-system or chip level environments. Our software engineering team can also offer software IP and APIs for device drivers and SDKs in order to configure and manage the underlying Rianta IP blocks.

ASIC/SoC Design Services

Rianta’s ASIC, SoC, ASSP, and FPGA design service experts can work as part of your team, providing specialized services, or we can take full ownership of a complete turnkey project. We have engagement models to suit your needs, including fixed price and time & materials options.
