Maintain or improve a successful product line — even when your suppliers change course.

Many off-the-shelf chip solutions or ASSPs are designed for industries that differ from yours. If the modem changes in response to that industry, so must you. As chips become more functional, the one you need may soon be obsolete — and its replacement may include features that you don’t need. Consider the case of early CATV modulators and demodulators. These chips originally integrated a wide variety of modem functions because they were designed before the CATV industry had standardized. Although well suited for lower-rate terrestrial microwave links, they soon became unusable as terrestrial modems when the CATV industry removed much of the variability and added complicated access layers. The chip was discontinued. Since this area of the terrestrial microwave link market is miniscule compared to the CATV market, manufacturers have little economic incentive to continue supplying the chip. Abineau can replace standard-compliant chips with a custom FPGA-based system that offers more features and flexibility.

Break down the barrier to entry for custom solutions.

As the major fabricators continue to reduce silicon-circuit geometries, the cost of tools, tape-outs, and manufacturing continues to increase. The result is an ever-increasing barrier to entry for efficient, feature-rich, proprietary, or low-to-medium volume systems. Abineau provides the expertise you need to include customized wireless capability in your products, tailored to your specific needs.
