Tokyo Electron Devices
Tokyo Electron Device (TED) has 40 years experiences in the electronic industry and affiliated with Tokyo Electron Limited, one of the world leading semiconductors manufacturing equipment supplier. TED has an excellent track record as a trading company, exclusively servicing the electronics industry, and is listed on the Tokyo Stock exchange.
TED has changed the face of the technical trading industry by operating one of the largest design and development centers in Japan supporting commissioned design and development work. In addition, TED has world class capabilities to act as a fabless IC supplier by designing and developing its own semiconductor devices, in addition developing its own line of board and IP products marketed under its "inrevium™" brand as well.
Digilent programmable logic boards help engineers gain new skills or advance new designs. We produce Xilinx-based system boards built around the latest FPGA technologies, as well as time-tested solutions that offer robust performance at a very low price. All boards ship with a programming cable and power supply, and most cost less than the price of a textbook. A wide range of low cost prototyping and peripheral boards can readily expand system board capabilities – see our product catalog for a complete list.
HiTech Global
World Wide design, marketing, and distribution of Programmable Logic Reference Boards.
Advanced FPGA systems based on Altera FPGAs cover all the major applications in multimedia and image processing for various audiences ranging from guru-level ASIC designers, researchers, to graduate students. Terasic, with continuing efforts invested in high-end FPGA system design, EDA integration, and technical training, provides customers the maximum value added.
Microtronix began as a design and embedded engineering firm for custom networking equipment for the Telco marketplace, pioneering the X25 protocol. Today, Microtronix uses these same engineering skills to develop and support their own line of embedded products, specializing in the rapid development of FPGA based hardware, IP cores, printed circuit board and software solutions for embedded products.
