Based in Toronto, Crucial IP Inc. is a provider of silicon IP and design services to the Consumer Electronics and Broadcast industries. Founded by a team of veterans with over 50 years of combined experience in consumer video and computer graphics, Crucial IP is committed to providing high quality, cost effective IP cores for ASIC and FPGA implementation. With a focus on image quality and robust design, all cores have been subjected to hundreds of hours of rigorous testing.
As silicon densities continue to increase, competitive pressures dictate that companies incorporate more and more functionality into their designs, whether implemented in the ASIC or FPGA domain. Eventually, companies must reach beyond their core competencies into areas less familiar to them. The popularity of IP cores such as microprocessors and interface blocks including USB, showcases this fact. The use of 3rd party IP and design services allows companies to bring the required functionality to market in a low risk and cost effective manner.
Crucial's silicon IP cores are available for licensing at the source code level providing customers with maximum flexibility and future-proofing. For customers with particular needs, Crucial IP can offer optional customization services in addition to the included technical support. As well as standard and customized IP products, full custom design services are also available.
All of Crucial IP's video cores are available for evaluation using an FPGA platform. Call or email today to arrange for a demonstration.
