Our Mission: From Software to Silicon!
For more than a decade we have demonstrated our expertise in offloading CPUs and in accelerating software-rich system stacks via so-called Domain-Specific Architectures. To implement we make heavy use of heterogeneous processing such as FPGAs which we program using C++/C/SystemC as well as VHDL and Verilog HDL. Hence, from software to silicon!
MLE Offerings for FPGA IP Core Design
If it is packets, we make it go faster!
And with packets we mean:
- Networking using TCP/UDP/IP over 10G / 25G / 50G / 100G / 400G Ethernet
- PCI Express (PCIe) Gen 2 (4 GT/s), Gen 3 (8 GT/s), Gen 4 (16 GT/s), Gen 5 (32 GT/s), and
- PCIe Non-Transparent Bridging (NTB) or Inter-Systems Bridge (ISB)
- Compute Express Link (CXL)
- Data storage using SATA-1.5/3/6G, SAS-3/6/12G, USB 2.0/3.0, NVMe 2.x
- Video image processing with HDMI, DisplayPort, SDI, FPD-III
Our philosophy is to “proudly source elsewhere” which means rather than re-inventing the wheel we license (and sublicense) 3rd party IP cores from our growing list of partners and combine this with Open Source Software like Linux. Today, we offer high-performance (embedded) compute, image-processing, storage and network systems and solutions as well as licensable system stacks for adaptable compute platforms. We complement this with our expert system design services rooting in our long and deep partner relationships with all key FPGA vendors.
You can either bring your own FPGA hardware, or together we identify suitable off-the-shelf boards and kits, or, along with our System-on-Module, board and Electronic Manufacturing Service (EMS) partners around the world we support you in the design, assembly, bring-up and test of your custom hardware.
Over the last 30 years FPGAs have demonstrated significant values in applications which need highly-flexible programmable silicon across a wide span of markets and technologies – from consumer to cars to the cloud. MLE has successfully delivered solutions for classical or high-speed connectivity, software and system acceleration, Digital Signal Processing or Deep-Learning.
- Wired and Wireless Telecommunications
- Datacenter storage, network protocol and algorithm acceleration in the cloud
- Autonomous Driving and ADAS in automotive markets including Functional Safety (ISO 26262)
- Test & Measurement with high-speed data acquisition or recording
- Aerospace and Defense (including ITAR free development)
- Image processing and sensor fusion with camera, Radar, Lidar sensors
We are proud that our customers and partners see in us one of those rare teams of compute architecture experts and system design engineers. We have been applying and promoting novel FPGA design methodologies for increased design productivity, including High-Level Synthesis, and fostering FPGA education via strong relationships with teaching and research engagements at Universities. We have demonstrated to deliver cost-efficient FPGA solutions and, thereby, have become an industry-trusted source of technical expertise in IP Core integration, FPGA acceleration and system realization.
The team behind MLE has a history of working on FPGA IP core design, programmable logic design, embedded system design, reconfigurable computing, Linux kernel development, and heterogeneous networking technology for embedded electronics.
