The COSMOS platform from Aizyc Technology aims to address the needs of ASIC validation teams. It facilitates customized FPGA platforms with very short turn around times (starting at 5 weeks). This is a viable option to expensive off the shelf solutions or designing internally from scratch.
The Cosmos platform is built in much less time than a full custom board. Designers can simply choose the blocks they would like on the board and Aizyc will build the board to that spec using the extensive library of pre-built and pre-laid out interface options.
