As an IC design house, we can create your IC design for you and also we have an extensive portfolio of IP, including our own DSP engine that is optimised for the consumer audio market. We have created a number of IC designs for the consumer audio market and understand the cost structure, feature set and manufacturing limitations that are the hallmarks of the business.
We specialise in DSP silicon architectures for consumer audio, but we have also created sophisticated servo control systems, digital radio sub-systems and micro-controllers. What ever your need, we can see the project through to net-list, layout, test programs and initial roll-out.
No product in today’s market is complete without firmware. This essential and often undervalued component is an area where we see great value in adding features with minimal BOM addition. Global Silicon has a long pedigree of creating innovative DSP algorithms for audio and control system applications. Good real-time algorithms are created in harmony with the processing hardware in mind, we work in a number of source languages including assembler and C. Core to any consumer audio product is the user interface, simplicity is always the key to successful products, users should intuitively know how to use their product because a smart man-machine interface will simplify it for them.
