SafeCore offers an assortment of IP Cores. An IP Core is a reusable unit of programmable logic, which is used as building block in ASIC and FPGA designs. SafeCore´s IP Cores are developed according to RTCA DO-254 / EUROCAE ED-80 guidance with DAL A criteria. Each IP Core has a DO-254 / ED-80 Certification Kit, which is offered together with the IP Core.
Unless otherwise specified, all our IP Cores are technology independent. This means that the HDL code is written in such a way that it can be synthetized to any FPGA or ASIC without modifications.
SafeCore also offers the possibility to customize the IP Cores, as well as other custom development services.
For clients intending to use our IP Cores in high radiation environments (like aircrafts or spacecrafts), SafeCore offers radiation-hardened versions of the IP Cores. The radiation-hardened versions apply techniques like Triple Modular Redundancy (TMR) and Error-Correcting Codes (ECC) to mitigate Single Event Effects (SEE) caused by radiation.
SafeCore offers two types of licenses for its IP Cores: project-locked and lifelong. Under project-locked license, the IP Core can be used for a specific project in a specific program. Under lifelong license, the IP Core can be used in an unlimited amount of projects. Contact us for additional information regarding licensing.
