BLT Engineering Design Services: Excellence by Design

From the very beginning, BLT has set the standard in design engineering for FPGA/SoC and related technologies.

We offer design engineering services for commercial, military, and IC markets, designing custom chips, embedded software, FPGAs and SoCs, MPSoCs, RFSoCs, circuit boards, custom electronic solutions, and complete systems.

Our comprehensive range of design capabilities runs the gamut from FPGA/SoC and PCB design through full system specification, architecture and planning—including VHDL and High-Level hardware design, embedded processor design and high-speed PCB design. And our Design Advisory and Problem Resolution Services can help you maximize or improve the technology you already have.

WHAT WE DO

FPGA/SoC Design Services

BLT has been developing FPGAs since the technology’s inception. And our engineers are experts on FPGAs/SoCs from Xilinx, Microsemi, Altera/Intel, and all other major FPGAs/SoCs on the market.

Our design and development process is centered on our time-proven methodologies and proprietary checklist. Developed over 30 years of experience, these continually developing processes and tools allow BLT to identify and avoid critical path issues before they affect project schedules and budgets. BLT also addresses PCB and System development issues.

The BLT development process includes:

  • Assimilation – a thorough understanding of our Client’s design and priorities, typically taking a total of 1–3 days to absorb the needed information
  • Architectural review, suggestions, and optimization accompanied by a detailed project proposal
  • Device selection and optimization
  • Synchronous implementation and/or re-implementation
  • Critical Timing analysis paired with Functional Simulation
  • Implementation using first and third-party tools
  • Final and actual design performance verification

BLT often results in a cost savings, because we are frequently able to fit designs in parts that are smaller and slower than the average designer could achieve—which means the benefits of using BLT continue throughout the life of your product.

Our Expertise:

Relationships matter.

We believe in the win-win model — for our Clients and BLT. We only engage in design services when it’s a good fit for both of us. As trusted partners and fellow engineers, your success is our success.

What We Do (CONT.)

Board Level-Design Services

Along with FPGA designs, BLT typically provides complete board design, fabrication, and turnkey delivery for our Clients. Projects range from standards-based designs through completely custom solutions.

System Design Services

Using our Architecture, Specification, and Planning (ASP) process, BLT provides complete turnkey system designs. BLT solutions integrate FPGAs, embedded and stand-alone processors, firmware, and software, as well as mechanical and thermal design.

SWaP Design Services

In a wireless world, where products are expected to do more, faster, and with less power, design for SWaP (Size, Weight and Power) is at the core of manu of our designs.

Re-Engineering Services

Whether you’re unraveling your company’s own legacy designs or dissecting those of your competitors or contractors, BLT has the means to help. Often it is far less expensive to re-engineer rather than reverse engineer—but if the latter is called for, BLT has the means to perform.

The Bottom Line

At BLT, we’re not just design engineers—we’re also experts at Client service, performing as an extension of your organization thanks to our rigorous planning process. We strive to offer the least expensive, lowest risk, and fastest design capabilities available—to help you meet your goals on time and on budget.

Why Outsource

If your organization has design engineers in-house, why look to an outside firm like BLT?

  • Expertise: BLT has been developing FPGA-based solutions since their invention. Our experience is virtually unmatched.
  • Efficiency: In the design space, the road to success is lined with obstacles—most of which we’ve already learned to navigate.
  • Proficiency: FPGA tools and silicon are constantly evolving, sometimes monthly. Keeping up to speed is resource intensive—but we’ve already done the work.
  • Resource Management: Delegating design engineering challenges to BLT Design Services frees your internal resources to focus on tasks only they can perform.

BLT offers complete, integrated, end-to-end system and product development solutions. We absorb the market uncertainties. You reduce the capital costs, free up resources, and accelerate time to market.
