BitSim was established in the summer of 2000 with offices in
Stockholm and Växjö. The vision was to create a company focused on
microelectronic design with the most skilled designers and the best
reputation on the market. Our staff consists of a selection of excellent designers with a long
experience. BitSim expanded heavily during its first year and quickly
became one of the single largest design groups in Sweden specialized in
microelectronic design. BitSim's acitivites has always been distributed
between traditional embedded design, board design and ASIC & FPGA
development, although initially we chose to build a reputation on our
ASIC & FPGA competence.
During 2001 BitSim became a qualified consultant partner with Altera
and Xilinx. The initial end markets Telecom and Industrial expanded
during 2005 into Defence and Medtech. During 2006, BitSim expanded with
new offices in Lund (Southern part of Sweden), Gothenburg (Western
region) and Uppsala (North of Stockholm). During the fall of 2006
BitSim started an educational service offering, BitSim Education.
Product Name: BADGE
- ASIC and IC Design
BADGE – BitSim’s Accelerated Display Graphics Engine IP block for ASIC & FPGA, is an advanced graphic controller. It is an adaptable IP-block for ASIC and FPGA.
Electronic Warfare is an area that traditionally has been shrouded in secrecy. If one searches for books covering the topic one won’t find very many titles. This is per definition a military field involving the use of electromagnetic energy to determine, exploit, reduce or prevent hostile use of the electromagnetic spectrum. Is it necessary to have electronic warfare equipment or is it better to spend the money on other types of weapons?
Product Name: HIPPO
- FPGA and PLD Design Tools
The HIPPO board is an evaluation board used to explore the high-speed data capabilities of the new Virtex-II Pro FPGAs from XILINX. With the built-in SERDES transceivers in this device it is possible to implement standard high-speed interfaces, running at serial data speeds up to 3.125Gbit/s. Standards that can be implemented include: XAUI (10GBE), RapidIO (serial and parallel), Infiniband, Fiber Channel, Gigabit Ethernet, PL-4, Serial ATA and Hypertransport.
The UHAB has both analog to digital and digital to analog converters on board as well as the new large Virtex-4 SX FPGAs. The 2 channel ADC has a bandwidth of 1.7 GHz and up to 1.5 GS/s with an 8-bit resolution (ENOB 7,0-7,4 bits). This makes it capable of continuous acquisition at up to 3.0 GS/s. The analog inputs have adjustable attenuators, so the inputs can be adjusted 0-31 dB in 1 dB steps.
