Andes Technology Corporation
As the features of many electronic devices are becoming more and more versatile, many Nucleus customers demand new generations of SoC solutions for better scalability, flexibility, performance, cost and power saving. However, the diversity of emerging consumer markets has driven sophisticated design requirements that incur vital difficulties for traditional component providers to offer cost-effective solutions.
The innovative configurable platform solution allows Nucleus customers to construct unique system architectures and hardware/software partitioning in order to gain the best optimization in all aspects. With possession of technologies in the areas of microprocessor, system architecture, operating system, software tool-chain development, and SoC VLSI implementation, Andes can work closely with those customers to shorten their time-to-market with quality designs.
