About S2C

Founded and headquartered in San Jose, California, S2C has been successfully delivering rapid SoC prototyping tools since 2003.  S2C provides:

  • Rapid SoC FPGA-based prototyping hardware systems plus design and verification software.
  • Third-party Prototype Ready IP™
  • SoC design, prototype and production services

S2C’s value proposition is our highly qualified engineering team and customer-focused sales force that understands our customers’ commercial SoC development needs.  S2C’s unique FPGA-based electronic system level (ESL) solution, using our patented TAI IP technology, enables designers to quickly assemble FPGA-based SoC prototypes on S2C FPGA boards easily and securely.  This enables customers to start software development, typically the long pole item in development schedules, immediately.  Combining rapid prototyping methodologies with a comprehensive portfolio of Prototype Ready IP and advanced design solutions, S2C can reduce the SoC design cycle by up to nine months. 

S2C currently has 3 direct offices located in Shanghai, Beijing and Shenzhen to meet the demand for accelerated SoC design activities in China. S2C is also the organizer of the annual SoCIP seminar and exhibition in China, which brings SoC designers/professionals from the Asia-Pacific region together with international silicon IP and SoC solution vendors.
