SiFive’s “Idea-to-Silicon” Methodology

SiFive’s “Idea-to-Silicon” methodology provides the solutions for a market-focused design with silicon proven IP and the ability to incorporate your own IP. The innovative methodology process of SiFive will lower the cost and deliver an SoC for your specific application in a short period of time.

Benefits of using "Idea-to-Silicon" Methodology

Cost Savings

Ongoing product development costs on derivatives of existing chip designs are high and make it hard to integrate new IP. SiFive’s “Idea-to-Silicon” methodology can reduce cost and cycle time, while putting the hardware you need under your preferred software stack.

More Choice

Combine SiFive’s standard cores with our SoC IPs, or IPs from our partners and/or your own IP to get your ideal end product.

Design Flexibility

SiFive’s “Idea-to-Silicon” methodology provides an ideal starting point to explore and enter into key markets with the advantage of a faster design cycle by integrating required IPs from our wide IP portfolio, thereby providing a competitive advantage.

Rapid Time-to-Market

SiFive’s “Idea-to-Silicon” methodology provides the opportunity to optimize layout for the power, performance and size requirement of your target market, and enables rapid iteration for ongoing product roadmap development for optimal time-to-market.
