Behind Missing Link Electronics stands a growing team of well-trained and dedicated engineers who have solved many challenging aspects in configurable systems design and who are well equipped to help you in your design project. Given your project's needs we can start from system specification, via rapid prototyping, all the way to system bring-up and test. We all understand that some of hardest challenges are right inbetween "the hardware" and "the software" and that is why we all speak VHDL/Verilog and C/C++.
While our team has been instrumental in several embedded system development tasks, our special area of expertise is the combination of FPGA device technology with Open Source Linux software.
Open Source Linux software provides your project with a rich set of functionality, which is proven, tested and available for almost all embedded applications and Operating System requirements with support for AMP or SMP for multi-core CPUs. Access to source code enables you to meet the needs of software maintenance for long product life-cycles, when necessary.
Modern FPGA device technology with High-Speed Serial IO can be a very cost-efficient user-programmable digital circuit technology which allows you to implement almost any IO standard and data protocol, including PCI Express, USB, TCP/UDP/IP, 1 Gig and 10 Gig Ethernet, SATA-6G, SAS-12G. And, obviously, they are the best choice for implementing non-standard protocols, too. Today, FPGA are established as a next-generation compute platform for heterogeneous high-performance and low-latency data processing.
