Why you need "Solution SoC"Socionext has pioneered its unique “Solution SoC” business model, in which the company are
involved in the customers’ product development process from an early stage.
We help companies achieve differentiation according to their specific needs.
Socionext collaborates closely with partners worldwide and delivers complete solutions from
system design to production and quality control.
The growing complexity of products and systems is driving increased demand for custom SoCs.
Unable to achieve the necessary performance from existing application-specific standard product (ASSP) LSIs, customers developing novel services and applications are finding they need their own SoCs.
Background: What customers are looking for
To develop SoC, it is necessary to create SoC specification from desired services or application features and find the best suitable technologies solutions from semiconductor ecosystem (manufacturing fab, packages, IP cores, software, EDA tools and more).
Recently, to increase performance, it is necessary use advanced semiconductor process technologies but also adapt "More than Moore" technologies (including, for example, new packaging options and the use of accelerators).
Under these circumstances, customer seek silicon providers the strong development experience who can be involved from the concept stage.
Socionext has many years of experience in ASIC and ASSP development and will realize customer’s desired custom SoC as customers "virtual SoC Division".

~Integrating systems into a single package~
Gordon E. Moore, the joint founder of Intel Corporation, first coined the law that bears his name in 1965. He revised it in 1975 to predict that, “The number of transistors in large-scale integration (LSI) chips will double every two years.” While progress in semiconductor process miniaturization kept pace with Moore’s Law for many years, this pace has now slowed to the extent that system-level improvements can no longer be achieved by process technology on its own.
Why you need Socionext :Leveraging More than Moore 2
Recent years have seen considerable innovation in computer architectures in pursuit of higher system performance and lower power consumption. This innovation has achieved dramatic performance improvements through the adoption of accelerators that use hardware to perform the functions that used to be run as software on a conventional CPU or GPU.
