Cloud-based service providers, enterprises and mobile carriers are investing in new datacenters and wireless networks and looking for specialized solutions to provide differentiation and a competitive edge. Custom silicon, also known as application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), allows system vendors to create deeply differentiated silicon solutions.

Custom Silicon for networking applications allows the creation of silicon devices that are optimized for specific systems without the cost of developing all of the underlying intellectual property (IP). LSI Custom Silicon for networking provides the perfect canvas for creating your unique design that integrates embedded logic, memory, SerDes technology, Axxia® networking cores and the industry’s most popular processor cores including ARM®, MIPS and PowerPC®.

Take advantage of LSI’s rich heritage and experience in delivering standard product and customized silicon solutions to reduce your time to market.

Custom silicon provides:

  • Deeply differentiated silicon solutions that provide system-level performance or power advantages
  • Ability to combine customer intellectual property with LSI and third-party IP blocks to create highly integrated solutions
  • Leading-edge process technology for greater density, performance and lower power consumption
  • Advanced packaging options to support system and board requirements
