Your trusted partner

As people use the ever growing number of wireless services, streaming data between Internet servers and the devices in their hands, there are not many components in the signal chain, which the Uninord engineers haven’t made their mark on.

System design

We have experience from a project starting from having few lines on a paper and ending with product.

ASIC design

We have very strong and wide experience from ASIC design process.

FPGA design

We are capable of making the design in a way that fulfills both the ASIC and FPGA requirements.

UToolLibrary

For design creation Uninord has developed own design component library called UToolLibrary.

System design

The system design phase is the most critical phase of any project. This is the phase where the biggest gain from design expertise and effective optimization can be achieved, whether measured by BOM cost, total project cost saving or schedule, power consumption, performance or best achievable feature set or functionality.

ASIC design

We have very strong and wide experience from ASIC design starting from system and architectural design, and expanding that to both front-end and back-end design flows. Our engineers can handle a wide range of different tasks during the project.
  • Architectural design
  • Gated clocks, clocking
  • DVFS
  • Power management
  • Power domain structures
  • Power analysis
  • Design partition
  • Clocking and resetting for SoC (System on Chip)
  • Block design
  • DFT (Design for testability)
  • Formal verification
  • Synthesis, constraint generation
  • Timing closure, Static timing analysis (STA), floorplan supervision
  • Design verification
  • High level synthesis
  • Design maturity
  • High speed serial interfaces (SerDes)
  • DDR, QDR, RLDRAM, FCRAM
  • PCI and PCI-E
  • Fast prototyping with structured ASICs
  • Rapid prototyping platforms
  • Custom FPGA boards

FPGA design

We have a successful history of FPGA related work. In ASIC projects the emulation is normally done with some rapid prototyping platform or custom FPGA board. And we know how to use those emulation platforms. We are capable of making the design and utilizing design flow in a way that fulfills both the ASIC and FPGA requirements. We have also successfully executed a lot of projects that are targeted only to FPGA environment.
  • Project and quality management
  • Architectural design and specification
  • Product feasibility studies: cost analysis, trade-off’s, feature sets
  • All development work including the tools and infrastructure
  • All major vendors
  • Specification, design & verification
  • Network and wireless protocols
  • Clocking and resetting

UToolLibrary

For design creation Uninord has developed own design component library called UToolLibrary. Ready designed and tested components will shorten the design time for the project and the results will be more predictable. Components are targeted to be area optimized and low power. Components may be converted to ASICs and Xilinx or Altera FPGAs.
  • DSP Filter path creation
    • Channel filter
    • Interpolation filter
    • Decimation filter
    • Multistage filtering
    • DDS
    • FFT
    • Matlab models

Uninord is known for professional expertise, reliability, flexibility and total commitment on the quality of results and project schedules.
